I am trying to complete my Masters of Healthcare Informatics degree, and this is supposed to be my last course. but I may have to drop it because the "instructor" is terrible, and refuses to even follow the written policies of the school…

She is a PHD, and tha makes her feel superior to her lowly students, so she keeps changing the curriculum to her personal standards, but gets annoyed when you try to get a clear view of what she wants, until after you have submitted your work, and she FINALLY gets around to posting your grades. Then, after ruining your grade, she will include smarmy little comments explaining why she gave you such low marks. The problem is that she is too late for yout o learn what to do, if she only tells you after you have already failed. She refuses to respond to inquiries from students within the required 48 hour time frame, and only responds to questions when she get around to it, which is also usually too late for your grade.

Of course, she graded everything fairly the first week of class, mainly because she knows that after the first week, you can no longer drop the class, without having to pay out of pocket to take it again. This is a trend among bad "instructors" at GCU, they always wait until they think you are trapped in their class, to show their true colors, and it is infuriating. At almost EVERY other institution of learning, you can withdraw from a class up until it is halfway finished, but for whatever pointless reason, GCU won't let you get out after a single week. If you are an online student, like I am, you have almost ZERO means to get in contact with the University, except through your Student Services Advisor, who is mostly useless, and unable to assist at all, except to suggest contacting the "instructor", which is almost guaranteed to be a waste of time and effort as they have already decided how they are going to "teach", and that is that.
