Major: Business - Management and Administration (This Major's Salary over time)
I have graduated from GCU with a MBA & M.Ed. I was happy with the format, however I should have realized that there may be a problem when I wasn't permitted to attain my teaching license since Wisconsin doesn't allow out of state colleges to award a license with within Wisconsin. The college has to be approved first, and GCU isn't.

I decided to continue for my Doctorate in Business Management. I started this 4 years ago. I am still working on my 10 point strategy plan. They tell you

You have the keys to your bus
meaning you plan the dissertation, and they will help you. Absolute lie. You make the 10 points, and have it approved with the IRB, BUT then they will ask you to make changes, in which the other IRB members will refuse. So you will start over… and over… and over. Each time having the 10 points approved, but then asked to have it change (to make it interesting, or more original) and then have it refuse. My word of advice, DO NOT GO TO GCU!!!!! You can't get out! The credits don't transfer, and you have to stay in, or pay the $120,000 student loan back, which you can't until you graduate, but you can't graduate until they approve your dissertation, which they won't. So you will always have this debt, and then can't go elsewhere.

I would be willing to agree to joining a civil case against them for malpractice.

responseI completely agree with you, I'm also in the exact same boat. I'm going to file a complaint through my district attorney, perhaps you should as well.
I am in for it. I feel they are hiding information from the learners. They want us to fail and drop out on our own.
