GCU is probably for most people. The only person I can think of that may not enjoy their stay here are people that are sensitive about relegion, or no-relegion for that matter. Because it is a Christian University, some people may take it the wrong way and not appreciate the school's view on this.

People who have a hard time balancing more than one class. I am able to take online classes, one at a time, and recieve two bachelor degrees in about 2-3 years.

mandy

People from any type of back ground could come to this school. I think you should be serious about your education if you want to attend this school. The courses are considered rigorous, and students will get a quality education at this school. If you do not like hot weather do not apply for the ground campus. Try the online school instead.

aubree

A person should not attend this school if he or she is uncommitted to giving their best in accomplishing what they came to achieve.

Mireya

If you don't like being at home and studying online, where you are able to study and have a flexible schedule, don't go here. Many people prefer to be around other people in their college experience. Online classes are not physical so you won't be able to see or talk vocally with your instructors. It is a different experience from traditional classes and it is not for everyone.

This university has a strong Christian based environment. It would probably not suit anyone who is not a Christian or interested in learning about Christianity.

No-one. I believe this school is perfect for any person who's willing to put into the time and effort.

Tavisha

A person that should not attend this school is someone who doesn not like rules and a christian strucure. This school is not a good place for someone that is looking for parties and a lively city atmosphere, because it is a christian private school that stays close to its Baptist background. Nor is it a good place for those who are not focused and/or motivated because it is the most expensive school in Arizona, and there is not much consuling asistance.

Christina

The only things that can limit a person from attending this school is if you do not have transportation to attend a ground class or you do not possess a computer to take the classes online. If you are not interested in attending a school that will guide you and lead you to a higher degree, then this is not the school for you. If you are more interested in socializing and not learning and putting to good use the tuition money being spent on your education, then this is not the school for you.

Rich

That is an unfair question. Everyone should attend a college or university to further their education, in the current world enviroment not furthering it seriously limits their future endevours. That being said, there are students in high school today that are of the mind that everything they want in this world will be handed to them,simply for the asking. Others have made the choice that being in school is a waste of their time and effort. They are the type that need an education of a different type. Possibly a few years in the military will help them.

Jennifer

If you do not like an all gender dorm this is not the school for you. Your boyfriend or girlfriend cannot stay the night in your room. They are also not allowed in your bedroom. They have to leave at 10 during the week and 12 on the weekend. You cannot drink or have alcoholic beverages in the dorms. You cannot smoke in the dorms. If you do not believe in religion or God this is not the place for you. Grand Canyon is a christian based college.

Mara

I don't think that it is fair to discriminate or pass judgement regarding who is or is not qualified to attend any school for higher education. However, after researching my university of choice, I have learned that it seems to be a rather "rigorous" program. Often, new students are not expecting or prepared to devote the necessary time to earn high grades. As this school is well-known for its high academic standards, I would strongly encourage any prospective students to examine whether or not they are able and willing to spend the time to excel before they commit.

Brian

Since I am attending online, I wouldn't recommend it to someone who isn't dedicated and unable to access/use a computer.

Michelle

The kind of person that should not attend Grand Canyon University is a student who is not willing to work, learn and cooperate in receiving an education.

Lucy

Well I think that Grand Canyon is a wonderful school for anyone. They have a really amazing nursing program and a really great sports program. They are alo a Christian university, so maybe if someone strongly denied Christianity, this school may not be for them, since they do have many Christian programs. They are also on the pricy side in regards to tuition, but I didn't think I had the money to go there, but I thought that my education was too important and that I would somehow someday find a way to pay for it.
