What Degrees Can I Earn Online?

Today, more and more degree programs are becoming available online. At GCU, you can choose from online programs in education, business, liberal arts, nursing and sciences.

This way, you can pursue a degree that you are passionate about, while benefitting from the convenience and flexibility of an online program.

How are Online Degrees Viewed by Employers?

As online degrees become increasingly popular, they are becoming more accepted in the workplace. Rather than focusing on the format in which you earned your degree, many employers are more focused on what you earned your degree in and whether or not it was received from an accredited institution. As a fully accredited institution that has experience providing online degrees, GCU is a great place to pursue your online education and prepare for a successful future.

Can I Transfer into an Online Degree Program?

GCU’s online programs are transfer-friendly. In order to make the process as simple as possible, GCU will request your transcripts, evaluate your coursework and determine your graduation date, all within 24 hours.

How Can I be Involved with Campus Life?

GCU’s online students receive full access to campus events. This way, they can experience life as a Lope and take advantage of all that the traditional campus has to offer. Attending events like basketball games and plays will provide you with opportunities to connect with your peers and have a memorable college experience. In addition, once you complete your online degree program, you will have the opportunity to attend a commencement ceremony on GCU’s main campus.
