Native American students have an established history with GCU, including more than 200 alumni and several hundred current students with a tribal affiliation. With Arizona representing one of the highest percentages of Native Americans across the nation, it is convenient to have the option to complete your program online, at our Phoenix campus or through our evening cohorts, which meet just one evening per week.

Become a GCU Student

  • Contact GCU, and ask to speak to a tribal enrollment counselor. Be prepared to discuss your preference to attend our main campus, an evening cohort or online classes. Also, be prepared to indicate your program of interest and which Native American tribe you are affiliated with.
