Graduation Year: 2016

I am online . I do not have any problem with the university. I do have contact with my advisors. The con is there is there is not scholarship or program for students with financial needs.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

I like the flexibility of having classes online since I teach full time. Unfortunately, the academic support staff help can be limited since time because is an element. My academic counselor has change 4 times during my program. They work the same hours we do as teacher so it can be difficult getting in touch with then.I love the library services.They have helped me find resource materials quickly!

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

The online system of LoudCloud is possibly the best system I have ever used. It is accessible, user-friendly, and organized with a calendar of discussions and assignments noted from the minute you log in. I feel that the education I have received is of high quality, but the tuition was not high. The courses are four credit/ 8 week courses, allowing enough time to learn and apply the material, but not overdoing it by only taking one class at a time. This was not the first online institution I applied and took courses with, but it is the one I will finish with. Because I am comfortable and surrounded by a successful atmosphere, from the online system to the faculty, I feel as though I can succeed and my GPA reflects such. I have no faults with this institution and I recommend everyone who is looking to earn a degree online to put Grand Canyon University at the top of their list.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

As a parent returning to school I needed a graduate program that was convenient and has a top notch support network. Grand Canyon University has everything I was looking for and more! My graduate program is available entirely online, offering me the flexibility to work with my parental and job responsibilities. The support is fantastic too! The advisors are always available and more than willing to answer questions and walk you through any aspect of your personal educational journey. GCU also offers many additional resources for the online community such as efficient tech support and wonderful interactive experiences on and off campus with their charitable and athletic programs. I am proud to be a Graduate student and Lope!

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Grad School is definitely more difficult than undergrad, but I am learning so much that will better me in my career pathway. Grand Canyon Universities online program is great and even though it's online you still make relationships with other graduate students!

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

I think that the pros of the graduate pogram are that it helps to further your educational goals. It also helps provide jobs that are more financially secured. The academic staff and instructor were adumant about ensuring that I had the adequate amount of resources to help me be successful in the prograsm. They did routine phone calls to see if I had any issues or concerns with anything. I honestly don't have any cons for the program because everyone was caring about the succes of the program and how well I was doing.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

After searching for years, Grand Canyon University met my needs while allowing me to continue teaching full time while furthering my education. The studies are strenuous and challenging and explore all the areas of special education history, law and studies that are most beneficial to teaching. Strategies and interventions are thoroughly explored and lead teachers to research current topics, integrating best practices and meeting the needs of students identified with special needs.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

Maybe the pros are that its a very competitive program and one will sell so well and effectively with this degree. Cons are that,with this degree you are almost qualified for any health administrative job out there and hence people gets confused which work setting they want to work in;Hospitals,Nursing homes, long term and short care centers and health companies and offices are all open to Healthcare administrators and hence one has has to make up their mind whre he/she want to work. Another con is that this degree and program calls for constant research and updating oneself witht the ever dynamic technologies and services not forgetting the legal statutes too which gets enacted every now and then. As a healthcare administrator,one needs to be on top of everything in order to avaoid unnecessary deadlines and suits which arises from non-compliance. Therefore,with all this said and done, I know I am so ready for this program and career. I am prepared both mentally,psychologically and emotionally to tackle it. My life time goal is at least a Doctorate degree in this Field.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Grand Canyon University is providing me with an opportunity to complete a graduate program in Professional Counseling while still residing in a rural community. The student and financial advisers are competent and responsive. The workload is appropriate and the texts are quality.
