Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

Grand Canyon University has been the best choice for me in choosing a Graduate Program. Everyone from admissions to enrollment counselor to the professors have been great to work with in preparing me for school and classwork. I have yet to experience anything to make me regret my choice in programs or schools.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

The Pros: This program provides me with quality professors in the field of counseling and psychology. Providing knowledge and experience that helps in my learning experience. The Cons: This program having too many practicum courses. I would have perferred at least three with the length of time of 11 to 12 weeks for each.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

The pro's of going to Grand Canyon online is that I can work around my work load at home, and if it was not for there helpfulness in my last class, both the college and my Instructor I would have had to drop out. Because with less than three week to go in my last class I was in a very bad accident, that I broke my back and six ribs, and was in the hospital for ten days and the help me make up the three papers I had missed and I passed the class with an A. For the cons their is lots of work in my new class for someone that in a little over a month broke his back. But with the power of prayer and God's healing me I'm getting the work done. The Scholarship could sure help me at this time to pay for college things, so I can get back on my feet and move forward again. God Bless Joe Finch

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

The benefits of this program is the flexibility of taking course online from anywhere. The school is very understanding to personal issues and grants extensions or leaves as needed. The school is very family oriented and believes in focusing on the whole student.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

Grand Canyon Univeristy was a an excellent choice for my Masters of Science in Nursing: Nurse Practitioner Program. It has high quality learning facilities and a great learning center with tutors available. As all nursing programs can be, GCU was a little unorganized. Also a little pricy for comparable programs.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

During my graduate school, I have gain much knowledge regarding administration. The courses are challenging and it takes dedication. On the other hand, it was difficult to take these classes while working due to the requirements.
