I am excited and pleased with what Grand Canyon University offers. I am looking forward to accomplishing my Masters and improving Healthcare from an administrative position.

The graduate program was an excellent choice on my part and I have no regrets about aspiring to obtain my masters degree at this fine University.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2015

I truly enjoy the online way of earning my degree. It helps me have a job, and a life outside of school. I have to map everything out with my work load but it is very doable.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Cognitive Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program is a well-rounded education to prepare the student for future work in the counseling field. Enrolling and receiving financial aid was easy with the help of the student adviser.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Comparing my experience to my friends who are on campus at other schools, the level of my education is much greater. I am learning relevant material and it is challenging. I am proud of what I am learning, even though it is challenging. It has not 'dumbed down' to societies standards.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

Grand Canyon University's academic rigor is right on target and the faculty members are very supportive.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Grand Canyon has been incredibly supportive and a good way to start on-line education. The classes have not been as rigorous as I experienced in a brick & mortar school but have provided opportunities to learn at my own pace.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014

I take online classes so transportation and campus safety do not apply to me.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The online program has been easy to navigate. I have found the teachers to be very helpful and supportive.
4.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The only reason for the lower star rating is that I am an online student and could not rate the qualities of campus life. In regard to my actual academic program, I certainly felt that my courses provided relevant material that will help in my professional development. All topics covered are issues that are currently being faced in today's public school system. The instructors in each class were extremely available and most gave extensive feedback. The assignments were explained well and provided a very good overview of the daily teaching experience. I would be hard pressed to supply a negative comment as I feel this has been a totally worthwhile endeavor.
