What Makes GCU Different?

Make Your Faith Your Own
We believe being Christian means following the teachings of the Gospel every day of the week-not just on Sundays in a church environment. From your dorm to your classroom and everywhere in between, we're building a community of students and graduates who are supported and can grow in their Christian faith. Students have the opportunity to interact and share thoughts about their beliefs with students exploring their faith, who are also welcome on campus. This serves as the perfect platform for students to make their faith their own, a skill students can use in any environment. Visit

Prepare for the Job Market Thanks to our investor-supported business model, we have the unique opportunity to adapt more quickly to changing technologies than traditional universities. We have an advisory board of industry experts who continue to provide guidance on what businesses want to see from graduates, and we have built and will continue to grow our curriculum to ensure our students are prepared for the workforce of tomorrow. 

Scholarships Are Renewable Annually and Can Increase in Value Students participating in the Antelope, Faculty, Dean and Provost academic scholarship programs can actually increase their scholarship amount if they perform exceptionally well at GCU. The average GCU student only pays about $7,800 per year in tuition, after GCU-funded scholarships are awarded. For more information on our scholarship programs check-out

Graduate Early! During a time when universities are unable to graduate students in a four-year time period because of overcrowding at the junior and senior level, GCU's students can graduates in just 3.5 years. Our four-credit courses get you to the graduation milestone faster, with more in-depth teaching in fewer subject areas. Graduating early means you save money because you can enter the workforce much sooner!
