Communications Major, College of Humanities and Social Sciences

At Grand Canyon University, serving the military community is a top priority. GCU understands that with the demands of military life, deployments and irregular schedules, school can be a challenge. GCU aims to make the path to an education as simple as possible for military students. Continue reading to learn about the ways in which GCU meets the needs of the military community:

Military Tuition Assistance and Costs

Active military members and veterans are eligible for a special military rate per credit hour in order to support active servicemembers and their spouses. At the time of this blog post, GCU is also pleased to offer veterans and their spouses a 10 percent scholarship off tuition.

GCU follows military policies and processes for the tuition assistance (TA) program and other military benefits. If you are an eligible member of the Army, Army National Guard, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Air National Guard or Coast Guard, you may use these military TA benefits at GCU.

Online and Evening Degree Programs

GCU offers a wide variety of degree programs in fields that are in high demand, such as accounting, business, counseling, education, nursing, information technology and more. As a premier military university, GCU provides convenience and balance for students by offering degree programs in evening and online formats, giving you options when it comes to earning your education. In addition, throughout your educational journey, GCU’s dedicated military team will guide you every step of the way.

Campus Veterans Center

GCU’s Campus Veterans Center provides veterans with assistance while on campus. The center offers a wide range of services, from assistance from school-certifying officials to GCU’s textbook exchange. The main objective of the center is to provide you with the resources needed to meet your academic goals! The Student Veterans Association can offer you ways to get involved on campus while also connecting with other veterans. By joining our chapter of the Student Veterans Association, you will have the opportunity to build relationships with military veterans and servicemembers at GCU.
