Grand Canyon University — transfer credits - scam
Going back to school was a large step for me financially. I have 2 children that are college students. I thought it would be great to complete my education. It was something I wanted to do for me. I work full time so online was the way to go. I spoke to many online colleges and Grand Canyon University really seemed to fit my needs, but expensive. I only completed my enrollment after my "unoffical transcript was reviewed( knowing my offical is the exact same transcript). They were going to transfer 84 credits, so I would only have to complete my core classes. I thought great, I can handle it financially with student loans. Well almost 9 months later and 4 classes completed at Grand Canyon I was informed that the school made an error reviewing my transcripts and that I still needed another 30 credits. I understand Unoffical and Offical transcripts, but it took 9 months to review my Offical Transcript? Grand Canyons answer to me was that "the offical transcript was miss filed" FYI, I had sent them 3 offical transcripts because they said they never received the first two! Now I am $6300.00 in debt ( 4 classes) and can't complete my education because I can't afford the additional cost. The school will not do anything to help me. I offical response from the school took 6 months. Make sure you get everything in writing. Keep all your emails! The staff seems to change every couple months at Grand Canyon University.
