Honored to Serve the Military Community

Today, more than ever, a college education can give you an enormous advantage in both a military and civilian career. Unfortunately, the rigorous demands of the military lifestyle, including long hours, irregular schedules and frequent relocation, can make earning your degree difficult.  

For this reason, Grand Canyon University (GCU) has developed a military university program specifically to meet the needs of military professionals, DOD personnel and their families.  In recognition of our outstanding support for military university students, Grand Canyon University was recently named one of the top Military Friendly Schools by GI Jobs Magazine.
