the 2010-2011 school year is proving to be the worst yet for GCU's financial aid department. It is the end of week five and virtually financial aid has not been certified yet. If you are an affected student speak up and complain at the web address posted above. The only way to force GCU to behave in a responsible manner is for students to unite and complain about the disorganized, inefficient and unresponsive nature of the accounting office at this institution.

For thise who may be unaware the federal department of education is currently investigating GCU's financial aid department. Make some noise and force them to treat their students with the same respect every other university public, private and for proft school in the country does. Even with the new direct loan system every school I polled is still disbursing financial aid within two weeks f class start.

Complaining here is a start to help others to avoid the nightmare, but it won;t solve the problem. Complain to someone who can help make this institution better for all. THis university only has a 38% retention rate and a 49% graduation rate (fafsa.ed.gov) for a reason, it is their complete disreagrd for students.

responseThey completely screwed up my husband's financial aid. Every time we've called we got the runaround. I'm about to sue them.
responseI have never had any problems with my financial aid. I always get a refund check within a few weeks of starting classes. The financial aid department has some great counselors that have helped me fill out grant and scholarship forms and always get right back to me when I have a question.
I never had problems with financial aid
commentAt this point I am tired of GCU and their run around. They are so quick to call about unnecessary things but the important things they will not. I so so close to finishing but I really want to go to another school. They will not answer any important questions you have but always say things are being handled
