Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I graduated with my Bachelor Degree from an online school and enjoyed it. However, this online experience with Grand Canyon University Online has been the BEST! I have a ton of support, access to advisors, faculty and staff that are easily accessible and I am learning a lot.

I am really enjoying my online experience with GCU. I like how the advisors, and professors communicate with you personally. I like how simple the program is to follow online with the postings and assignment due dates.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I attended another online program for a semester and realized more that the program was no for me. However, when switching to Grand Canyon University, I learned that the online graduate program is more academically rigorous and has proven to be a great challenge, in a good way. I feel that I'm learning more and building community even while located in another state. I feel that I'm getting great value for my education.

The online program for the Professional Counseling program is amazing and I have no complaints other than I wish I had a day off between classes.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The program has been manageable on top of working full-time and was year-round, so it was not overwhelming. However, I found that the work came easy to me and I was required to teach myself much of the material.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2017

I am not able to comment on such categories as, campus safety or transportation due to the nature of my classes mainly being online, but what I can say is that the support I have received this far, can only lead me to believe that the on campus experience is just as great as online. I love my courses and the length of time to complete my program is very acceptable. The staff and students have been amazing and encouraging. I would recommend this University to others. Love the mission and vision statement and how they are preparing educators for the future.
