All I had to do was pay the money and I was inJan 02 2012Unknown
All I had to do was pay the money and I was in. But I came to this University with over 45 credits from my time in the U.S Air Force
The process of enrolling in GCU was actually fairlyNov 22 2011Psychology
The process of enrolling in GCU was actually fairly easy and straightforward. They'll do everything they can to "earn your business", after all, this school IS a business, don't ever forget that. But, getting in was quite easy. You'd need your High School Diploma (or transcripts), the application packet and then a transcript of any credits that you are transferring in from another school.
They do not look at SAT scoresNov 07 2011Education
They do not look at SAT scores. I took SATs and did well, but SATS are not factored into the process. Honestly, they accept just about everyone into their college. The only question is whether or not you can get it paid for. There isn't much of a question about whether or not you will be accepted - you will. So congrats!

Tuition is expensive but many scholarships are offered. For example, I had a 3.81 GPA in high school, and I get $10,000 a year for that. Also, I get $4,000 a year just for being in the College of Education and $2,000 a year just for living in the dorms. Also consider FAFSA money, other miscellaneous scholarships, and there are loans and grants offered too.

Don't pass by this opportunity - schedule a tour, you'll love it :)

The admissions process was especially easy for meNov 07 2011Sociology
The admissions process was especially easy for me. I went through an organization called Mind Streams that provides academic and financial aid counseling at no cost to the student. I filled out a four page form, made a small change to my financial aid profile and that was it. They were very generous with accepting credits from a community college I had gone to in California. The school is also amazing inexpensive considering that it is a for-profit. Roughly 10,000 a year including textbooks which are usually downloadble PDFs.
Nothing just pay the money and your inNov 05 2011Education
