GCU’s Main Campus

Located in the heart of Phoenix, GCU’s main campus provides a great environment in which to earn your education. The recent additions to the campus, such as new classroom buildings, dining options and residence halls, create an exciting atmosphere and an enjoyable campus life for students. In addition, students can experience Lope life by attending campus events and cheering on GCU’s Division I sports teams.

Students who desire the convenience that comes with living on campus can choose from suite-style residence halls or apartments. They can also take advantage of many student resources during their time at GCU. For example, the Office of Career Services helps students choose the correct major, prepare their resume and seek job positions on campus. Additionally, students can grow in their Christian faith by attending weekly Chapel services.

Online Degree Programs

Enrolling in an online degree program is a convenient way to pursue a college education. GCU’s online programs provide students with a quality education while offering the flexibility needed to succeed. As a result, GCU students who graduate with an online degree are prepared to thrive in today’s world.

No matter how busy your schedule may be, pursuing an online degree at GCU can allow you to earn a degree in a way that is convenient for you.

Evening Classes

If you are a working professional, it may be a challenge balancing work, life and school. However, GCU strives to make earning a degree possible by offering evening classes. In these classes, faculty members with valuable experience deliver a comprehensive curriculum one course at a time, one night per week.

In addition, evening classes are offered at several convenient locations, whether it be GCU’s main campus or extension locations throughout Phoenix, Tucson and Albuquerque, NM. Small class sizes enable you to receive the individualized attention you deserve, and you will have the opportunity to earn your education alongside peers from diverse professional backgrounds.
