LoudCloud maintenance is scheduled for the traditional students’ version of LoudCloud starting at 12am MST until 5am MST on Friday, July 18th. This maintenance only affects traditional students attending web-enhanced on-campus classes.
Thanks for your patience while we make these important updates to enhance our systems.
In order to improve the LoudCloud experience and capacity of our servers, we will be archiving lc.gcu.edu. This site will no longer be available to students to access after July 24, 2014. We encourage you to visit your previous courses on lc.gcu.edu no later than Wednesday, July 23 to access and save any course materials and assignments you may wish to keep on file. You may also download and save your eBook to your personal computer for future access if you wish to do so.
Please be aware that in compliance with GCU’s Learning Management System Availability policy that students are not guaranteed access to courses for more than five (5) weeks following the course end date. We encourage you to keep copies of all files uploaded to your online classrooms and save any course materials and eBooks to a personal computer prior to the end of each course.
As we move to update our network of blogs for an enhanced user experience, you may notice some live changes and a few minor errors on the site. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please note that we are aware of these temporary issues and we thank you for your patience.
Please be aware that GCU’s online bookstore, eFollett.com, will be unavailable from 7:00 p.m. (CST) Friday, June 13, to 10:00 p.m. (CST) Sunday, June 15 while important upgrades are made to the systems. The Campus Bookstore will still be available and in-stock textbooks can be purchased there. This maintenance only affects students needing to order or rent textbooks from eFollett.com that are not available in an eBook format in your classroom and faculty utilizing the Faculty Online Adoption tool.
We appreciate your patience while eFollett makes these important updates to their system.
Several of our student websites and applications will be undergoing scheduled maintenance on Saturday, May 24th from 12am – 2am MST. We understand that this is inconvenient for some of you, and we do apologize. Every website needs a little fine tuning from time to time and we scheduled it to occur when the least amount of you are online slaving over your schoolwork.
The following website will be unavailable during the scheduled maintenance:
LoudCloud Campus Edition (Ground)
Student Teaching Application
Life Long Learning Application
Be sure to download and save your eBook to your computer and watch any classroom videos or media you might need to complete assignments before the maintenance begins.
During the maintenance, online and graduate students can access your LoudCloud classes directly:

The LoudCloud Undergraduate website will be undergoing scheduled maintenance on Wednesday, April 16th from 1am – 4am MST and Thursday, April 17th from 1am – 4am. Please note that this maintenance does not affect Graduate or Ground students. We understand that this is inconvenient for some of you, and we do apologize. Every website needs a little fine tuning from time to time and we scheduled it to occur when the least amount of you are online slaving over your schoolwork.
Be sure to download and save your eBook to your computer and copy any details you might need from your syllabus or readings before the maintenance begins. If you did plan to do schoolwork during this maintenance window, you can work on your discussion questions by typing them up in Word to copy into your classroom later or complete your reading or assignment for the week.
Thanks for your patience while we make these important updates to LoudCloud!
Please be aware that beginning March 20, 2014 we will begin migrating Graduate classes to their own LoudCloud environment. This change will not affect the look of your LoudCloud classroom; the new environment improves the balancing of the load across our servers.
As we migrate courses over to the new Grad2 environment, check back here for a complete list of courses which will be located on Grad2.
*Please note that as of April 17th, all Graduate level courses beginning on or after April 17th, 2014 will now be on LoudCloud Grad2. Students should utilize the Student Portal single sign-on in order to access courses and receive access to their courses 3 days before the start date.
