You are told over and over "GCU cares about your education" and they don't. All they care about is that loan going to them to build new buildings and buy hotels. I had many finite issues that could easily be addressed if the school wasn't more concerned with getting more money out of me. Every time I talked with an advisor it always turned into a discussion about paying them, no matter what. The second I said "No, I'm not paying until we resolve this" they stopped replying. The councilor outright removed herself from my profile and dis-enrolled me within 24 hours, refusing to respond. They are like sales people trying to up-sale you all the time, and once you walk out the door they turn to the next victim.

Watch your finances as well. They will add a ton of fee's that shouldn't even be on your account, and the school will fight you tooth and nail to pay it all. Even threaten to send bills to collections instead of working with you.

My degree from them has been absolutely useless. Nobody takes GCU seriously, at all. GCU also does nothing but copy and paste ads from Indeed to assist you with getting a job, and half the listings won't even be from within Arizona. I've asked multiple people for career services help and have received absolutely nothing. Once you graduate they don't care. Their graduation numbers are inflated to make them look good. You can go to school there for a nursing degree and get a job at McDonalds, they will count it as a success…
