Grand Canyon University is out to collect what financial aid money they can. It's a business owned by private owners. The owners and the sales staff make all the money from the financial aid money collected. Profit is their motive and they are being true to that motive.
responseGrow up! What school is not out there to make a profit! It is a school but also a business. If they don't make a profit they go under. If you did your research about online education before you started this school you would have read about issues and know what some of the issues an online education can create. If they were as true to profit as you think they would not offer a reduced online price. Not many places do that based on my research. Did you check the cost of other online degrees? This program beats the cost of many by at least 4 thousand dollars. If they were trying to make a huge profit you would see that in their rates. No matter what school you go to they have issues. You just have to make up your mind what you can live with.
