Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

So far I am new in the program, but my enrollment counselor has done very well to answer any questions and to keep me updated with anything I need to do. My initial course has helped prepare me well for my future workload and to stimulate thought and to educate myself and my fellow students on the expectations of the school and how to utilize the university website and writing resources and APA style guidelines (I am in an online program). The curriculum so far is based on servant leadership and leading in a way as to grow others and it has been a fantastic journey thus far. I also went and checked out the campus which is very state of the art and has great resources for students and has community outreach programs. The cons so far would be that the discussion forum times out quickly and that is so far the only negative. I have learned to save my work in the event that this occurs so that I may easily resubmit if need be.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2013

I could not grade some areas because I didn't live on campus. The graduate was very productive and we always used the learning communities in every courses. The learning community aided in the common core standards. I would advise others to the any of GCU education programs.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The best feature that graduate program offers is, creating opportunity for scholars to express, share, and acquire knowledges from colleagues pursuing the same career aspiration. Additionally, graduate program encourages ongoing academically appropriate writing practices. If there is one downfall about a graduate program, that would be the strict grading system that scholars has to follow.

Group work within the classes can be frustrating because all the students are in different time zones.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros are its flexibility, the cons are that it does not have the face-to-face interaction with other students.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: Online class provides convenience for life outside the classroom, more communication with students, opportunity to experience other students perspectives, and a plethora of online resources to improve as a student and a writer. The only con for me that I have overcome is that I enjoyed going to class and listening to the instructor while taking notes. I am a very visual learner and miss the traditional classroom setting but I am willing to change for the betterment of my intelligence.
