Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program is perfect for me because I am a full time Supervisor and a full time Mom. The online environment works for me because I can work when I need to and I can study when I have time. I also like being able to go back to the lecture more than once so I get all I can out of it. I have a learning disability that makes it difficult to learn in a classroom setting with the many distractions that are there. I also love GCU because my questions are answered within 24 hours of asking them, I actually feel as though I get more personal help in the online setting than I did in classroom settings. I never have to wait for an office hour. GCU has assigned me an academic adviser that calls me regularly to make sure everything is going well and to answer any questions I may have about my program. The tech support is quick and helpful with any problems I may have with the online studies. I chose Grand Canyon University because they have a strong program for the child development student. I am also working on my K-3 credential.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

The overall MBA Online program fills in the gaps to allow you to achieve the next level in your career after receiving your Undergraduate degree and working in the industry. There are areas of opportunity for the online program such as their use of a quiz program that does not tell you what answers you incorrectly answered. And the marketing class doesn't help the students learn about marketing as much as it does about meeting deadlines. The leadership, economics and statistics classes are valuable. Plan on a lot of group work in the qualitative courses.

Some of the questions I couldn't answer because I am strictly online, if so the star rating would be higher. However the online community promotes positive and healthy conversations in the forums. Critical thinking is strongly encouraged. The staff as in my enrollment counselor, academic/financial counselor, and professors are very helpful. They communicate with you on a regular to make sure that you are doing well in your classes.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

Makes it easier to manage while having full time job and being a wife and take care of home. Cons would be group assignment which can be challenging at times.

Degree: Psychology

Excellent learning and material presented. Very difficult to manage home and work outside of education due to the amount of work in the school.
