Faculty support, mainly advisors are always checking up with me to see if I need anything at all. If I need them and do not reach them immediately they call me back within 24 hours. They make me feel like i am the only student and not just a number. I would recommend everyone to attend GCU.

Grand Canyon Promotes education and making it possible for anyone to return to school at an affordable rate with out financially putting families in a financial bind. The school strives to improve to deliver the best to the students and the public. GCU just keeps getting better.This is my third time going back and I can't find anything horrible about the school as all I have seen is constant improvement for the better.

Being in an online environment, there are issues of lack of response from the instructors. There is no face to face time so sometimes conveying the questions become an issue. I do love the team of counselors who keep you on track and check on you throughout each class. They also help in filing paperwork and taking care of all required testing and information as well.

The student supports are fantastic. There are several "helps" from advisors to online assistance in research and presentation.

I recently graduated from GCU's online MPA in Health Care Management. As with many online programs, you get out of it what you put into it. The course load was manageable with a full time work schedule due to the 8 week course format. I enjoyed connecting with students who live world wide and learning from their previous experiences. Overall, the value of the education was great as it is significantly less expensive than other graduate degree programs I had looked into but it does lack the resume 'wow factor.' If you are looking for a manageable graduate degree program that is a great value and won't put you into excessive debt, this is definitely the place for you!

GCU offers a variety of programs tailored towards traditional and non traditional students. Many of the programs are offered online making it more convenient for working adults such as myself. In addition to this, the online environment encompasses a comprehensive learning module that allows students to interact with students and faculty.
