Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

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.

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

They are great help and a very good program. I could not rate specific areas because I am completing my studies online and am not on their campus!

Grand Canyon University offers wonderful evening graduate degree programs allowing full time professionals to achieve their professional goals. Being able to work full time and continue our education in a safe and friendly environment is beneficial. Beginning a program with the same students you will graduate with is very rewarding and will benefit us in the future. Grand Canyon has very knowledgeable staff and a wonderful, experienced, professional faculty.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Grand Canyon University is a godsend for me. I am a substitute teacher in my school district and needed a graduate program which would allow me to continue working. The online program at GCU has made this possible. So far the instructors have been wonderful. GCU also has a great online system which makes it easy to communicate with the online community. The main deficiency of GCU Online, which is true of any online school, is the inability to have face to face meetings with instructors and peers. I do believe GCU will give me the skills I need to become a true scholar in my educational field. I am truly happy to have made the decision to further my education at GCU.
