Degree: Nursing

It's an online program and allows me to work while continuing my education. It's relatively easy to get into the school, no hoops to jump through. They make the process smooth. No cons that I have encountered.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

Advisors are awesome. Their customer service skills are great. They take the time to listen and also call you before and after each class seeking feedback about my experience. Some of the instructors are hands-off but for the most part the instructors add value to the online learning experience by sharing their knowledge and asking probing questions.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

This program has enabled me to begin my graduate education while I am on Active Duty in the United States Army. I cannot begin to explain the appreication I have for the support and understanding of the GCU faculity/staff/ and fellow students. I have enjoyed the classes I have taken so far and look forward to continuing my education with this school.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2013

I enjoyed working from a distant. It is condusive for those in the workforce and trying to enhance their level of education. Through this program, I was able to further my education. The good part about it was that my daughter was able to see that her dad was moving forward in his education. That is what true modeling is.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The PRO's of the grad program at GCU are that the university is Christian, there are advisors available any time. There are online chats for support with library or tech support. The online class environment is better than most in class work environments I have been in. The only CON so far is the cost is not easily covered.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The Graduate school is awesome. The opportunities offered for the residencies are very manageable for worknig adults. The program is structured to support the working adult learner and provides structure, support, and learning at very accomodating levels. I love GCU and the doctorate program because along with the residencies to re-enforce the learning the student can participate in oncampus offerings.
