I feel like this survey is not completely relevant because I am in an online studies program therefore most of these topics don't actually apply. I've never actually been on campus, I live at home, so therefore I don't know much about the transportation and social aspects.

It seems that this school is not preoccupied with one's education but rather is after money as their primary focus.

Grand Canyon University offers a challenging but doable graduate degree program. The materials and instruction, if embraced fully, are perhaps more valuable than the tuition for them, so I would highly recommend GCU to potential graduate students.

This pros of my program is that we have a team of advisors that work with us. I can get the answer to any of my questions or concerns through any advisor. I have not found any cons yet for me school.

I feel GCU is more personable: I do not feel like a number but rather a valued student. The online technological challenges can take time to solve but otherwise I am so thrilled I chose this school for my masters degree in professional counseling!

GCU provides one of the most stringent doctoral programs in the nation. The level of academic expectation is high, guaranteeing a high level of accomplishment and credibility in my field. I am proud to be accepted and honored to be chosen. The counseling staff is excellent. I have three counselors all making sure my academic, financial, and personal needs are met. An outstanding college that I would recommend freely.
