Grand Canyon University [GCU] Complaints & Reviews

Grand Canyon University [GCU] / Graduate Program

Mi
Sep 20, 2019

Graduate program is great, until the dissertation portion. It is clear that GCU wants to string its students along for the financial benefit of the university instead of assisting students. Adjunct faculty are provided for the dissertation process and that piece of the faculty doesn't know...

I am a freshman 2019, I arrived at GCU full of good expectations since this university boasts a lot of its Christian values, the safe environment and the brotherhood. This happens only if you are white. I am Mexican and since I arrived I suffered discrimination and I was left alone. my...

Grand Canyon University [GCU] / doctoral program

Ed
Jun 29, 2019

Coursework and support were not sufficient and I was not allowed to finish the program on a timely basis. Basically the same as described at www.grandcanyonuniversitylawsuits.com in the Carr case, which may be a class action for doctoral candidates. Grand Canyon University is all about the profits, not about looking out for students. I do not recommend.

Feb 01, 2019

I think it is saddening that such an establishment would go in the face of free speech, & block a speaker with deep Judeo Christian values such as Ben Shapiro. This is counterintuitive of your mission statement: "opportunities in which the public can engage in events that involve critical...
