Where do I begin with Grand Canyon University. Well for starters, they have enrollment counselors that know how to lie to you and promise things that are impossible because of the ever changing classroom policies that they have there.
Charging you money for classes that are supposed to be eight week but they change the classes to seven weeks without telling anyone and upping to tuition without informing the student body.
Another thing is they withhold your financial aid until you inform them that you have money coming back and they also don't tell you that you actually get money until they are good and ready.
I have never once had someone from that school, enrollment,financial, or academic counselors call me to inform me of the classes I am enrolled in or the future of my schooling.
I am trying to transfer to a community college and I am not able to because none of my credits transfer because they are not an accredited college. They say that to make themselves look good.
Please what ever you do, do not go to GCU. they will rip you off and you will be paying for it for many years to come.
I just want my money back from the two years of crap that I had to go through with this college.

I have a completely different view and opinion about GCU. I started in October 2010, and I am very happy with this school. My financial aid was handled in a timely manner, my enrollment counselor calls me 2 weeks before every new class, my instructors are knowledgeable, fair, and very helpful. I have not experienced any course increases, and no one that I know has.

As for being accredited, the University holds many accreditations for the University, some colleges, and some programs. It is a student's responsibility to find out before beginning if the program they are in qualifies. The Higher Learning Commission and its predecessor have continually accredited Grand Canyon University since 1968, obtaining its most recent ten-year reaccreditation in 2007. The Arizona State Board for Private Postsecondary Education licenses GCU in Arizona.

I am sorry that your situation has not been a pleasant one, but I don't truly believe that you can make an informed opinion based on one person's experiences.
