I have to say a lot of these reviews speak of money and communication issues. A lot has changed and improved since these reviews were written. I think they have acknowledged the problems and are fixing them/have fixed them. I love my education and I am learning so much through my classes. My only complaint is the lack of food diversity and parking spaces which they are looking to fix by next semester.

Sorry, I had to give this one star, if I could have given it zero I would only because I feel like I was lied to & duped from the beginning. I was going to attend here and take classes for my Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education & then I switched my major to Bachelor's of Business Management. Around the time class was about to start I had some unexpected events come up and had to leave. I was also supposed to be receiving financial aid & my SSA said I was all clear when she kept calling me telling me to post in class & of course she's not going to have any record of this because she always called me from her personal cell phone. After about a month I get an email from stating that I have an outstanding balance of $2,232.01 for a class I never even took which I assure you GCU will not get a DIME of!! Of course they have some BS reason why I owe this balance and my SSA was saying that I could re-enroll & submit the proper verification documents I knew nothing of to apply financial aid to this balance & alleviate it. However, yesterday when I inquired about that she said no financial aid could be applied when 2 weeks ago she said otherwise. I feel like they are trying to cheat me out of money & for an establishment claiming to be Christian it's not fair for you to charge me 2,232.01$ for classes I didn't take. I'm currently working with my local community college so I can attend a real 2 year college & transfer to an actual 4 year University for both my Bachelor's & my Master's. Had I known what I know now, I'd done that from the beginning. Make it so bad, they refuse to submit anything confirming that I never took a class there because my SSA said it "Goes against their policy"...Right....They just think they're gonna stand in the way of me pursing my degree & they couldn't be more wrong...Save your time & money DO NOT come here!!!

If I could give less than 1 star to GCU I would, this is the most racial schools in Arizona. They advertise diversity and religion, however that's not the case here. Parents, please, please, research this school before entrusting them to educate your student. It has been a nightmare for my daughter and I feel so bad because they responded so quickly to get her in, its was exciting, then that excitement turned into 2 years of horror for her, she will be transferring to ASU ASAP, I just wished we had figured them out before investing 2 years of her education. It has been so bad, she was even considering quitting all together and stopping her education.

I tried several advisors. All of them were not very knowledgeable of what courses I should take first, or what courses will transfer to other schools such as ASU. One advisor signed me up for a class I didn't need. I set up my academic plan every semester on my own. The advising center at GCU worthless. A community college or ASU advisors are much better.

Grand Canyon University is money-thirst diploma mill--I know this not because I have studied there, but because I have worked there for over a year and knew many admissions and advising counselors who are still there! When we were working there, there were free education opportunities but I chose not to utilize that even if it is FREE! Because their diploma is worthless except BSN degrees! Knowing myself to blame for knowingly chose that toxic environment to work, I was shocked and am still shocked to know how preposterous that whole "working at GCU" scenario is! I worked there as an admissions counselor--and yes they expected you to "sell" their degrees to at least 5 students monthly--it is just like any sales job, if you do not make it to the "5" quota, you are threatened daily for your livelihood. Luckily I was able to satisfy the requirement for a year, but all the browbeats and threats day in and day out had placed so much stress in my life that I decided to look for another job. Thank god I no longer work for a for-profit university, instead I work at a state university where I am treated as a human-being with dignity. I know many people who deserve way better treatments chose to stay at GCU, one of the most important reasons is that GCU pays you really well and it is simply not possible to find anywhere else similar to the salary one is making at GCU at "entry level" positions. Let me tell you, those students who were hoaxed to study there by admissions counselors like me, do you think your counselor really cares about you? Perhaps a little bit, but what he/she cares most is the money you brings to the school and also the fact you are one of the 5 quota that he/she needs to maintain to keep his or her job! He/she checks in with you because he/she is required to make 100 calls a day and have 2 hours +talk time, just like any telemarketer jobs out there who can call you 20 times a day until you pick up and they can sell you the degree that is WORTHLESS! I will never go back to GCU again, a living hell where employees are not treated with the most basic human dignity. I hope schools like this will come under scrutiny from the Department of Education and other governmental agencies to bring to light all the illegal procedures that they are engaging in by promising career futures for students that are built with lies and by threatening employees to produce or fire them immediately. Is that what Christian universities are all about? Good luck and God bless GCU...

This school is an absolute joke. I have several friends who go here, and we compare our classes (that are supposed to be more-or-less equivalent, since we have the same majors at different schools), and GCU classes are more like middle school classes than college classes. The professors baby you; if you don't turn something in on time, just email them and they'll let it slide. Not preparing students for the real world AT ALL. At GCU, they also need the same 120 credits to graduate as most Arizona schools; difference is, GCU classes are 4 credits each, rather than 3. So they take roughly 16 less classes in their college careers. Good luck with such a lack of knowledge compared to other grads. Also, they build all of their buildings so fast lately, so they are complete S***. The Papago apartments had ants breaking through the floorboards, and black mold in the cupboard under the sinks within 2 months. And the response from whoever is supposed to repair it took another month or two. You request maintenance through emailing; so not efficient. This school just has no business being called a university. Save your money, because I can't imagine it will be long before it is deemed an non-reputable university, and the diplomas won't mean squat. If you want to go to college just to waste money and easily sail through without learning anything with your wasted four years, GCU is the place for you.

I COMPLETED MY PROGRAM BUT NEVER RECEIVED MY DIPLOMA FROM MAY 2011!! My experience at GCU was terrible!!!! I would NEVER reccommend this College to anyone except my worst enemy!! They make many mistakes and then blame them on the students! There is a high turnover of Academic Advisors (although most are nice) and that makes matters worse. Ive had an advisor sign me up for a class without confirming with me as I asked him to do because I was not even sure I could get into the class. Since I did not hear back from him(as he agreed to do) I did NOT know I was signed up. I assumed it did not work out. Therefore I never signed on. I later was told that I was put on Academic Probation for this issue. I had to fight that and ended being told that either I return the $3,000 disbursement money or retake the class, and the new grade would replace the F. I retook the class. I just found ound out that I owe money for that class and that is why I have not recieved my DIPLOMA!!...4 YEARS LATER!! Despite the fact that I have been trying for almost 4 years to figure out what is wrong! My advisors (always changing) would say they would get back to me but often did not, or they would give differnt reasons that did not make sense or they were not sure. Also Some of the professors are rude and do not treat students as WORKING adults. They don't always respond back in a timely fashion when we are on a time schedule. WORST COLLEGE EXPERIENCE EVER!! THERE ARE BETTER PROGRAMS OUT THERE.

I have attended Gcu for three years. I lived in Papago the past year, and I was told if I paid $100, I would be secured a spot on campus. I figured I would get to spend my last semester in a room filled with good friends that I have lived with for the past two years. That was not the case. When I got on to try and get housing, I found that all upperclassman housing was already filled. Even worse, it has been filled by athletes (of any grade) and ASGCU students because they got earlier time-slots. Head of housing won't even compromise and return my $100 since I chose to live off campus now. Many of my SENIOR friends are having to live off campus because sophomores are taking their spots in the on-campus housing, only leaving freshman dorms available. Who wants to live in a freshman dorm their senior year? Now, I find myself stressed out, looking for apartments when I should be studying for finals coming up. Maybe GCU should give more attention to the students they currently have (that have been here for three years) instead of inviting in thousands of new ones that they clearly do NOT have room for. So frustrated and hurt by this whole process. GCU is turning into a money-crazed school who only cares about taking your money then not helping you out at all. Done. Can't wait to be away from it.
