About Grand Canyon University
Since 1949, Grand Canyon University has been helping students find their purpose and achieve their potential by preparing them to pursue the profession of their dreams, advance in their current occupation, or re-career into a different field. As a Christian university, GCU also encourages students to find their purpose in Christ, with an emphasis on applying Christian values and ethics to their studies and to the workplace. In addition to the traditional campus, GCU offers online programs that allow you to be in any location, studying at any time of day or night you choose, while still enjoying the close connection with your classmates and instructor via online discussions. It's the perfect solution for those seeking the flexibility online classes offer. Unlike exclusively online universities, our programs are supported with the integrity and prestige of a traditional campus. As an online student at Grand Canyon University, you're joining a community of dedicated faculty, staff and students who care about your success. The prestigious, private university is regionally accredited and consistently ranked among the top colleges offering online courses by noteworthy sources including Fortune Small Business, Technology & Learning Magazine, Fox.com, Online Education Database (OEDb) and more.
