Marketing Major, Colangelo College of Business

Applying to Grand Canyon University is a breeze, especially when the application is free, the scholarship opportunities are undeniable and you receive individualized help from full-time GCU enrollment representatives!

Find out when to start applying for college at GCU and how you can reap the benefits of applying early.

Apply Early

Applying early to GCU definitely has its perks. First, traditional campus students who apply and register for classes early, are eligible for the Priority Registration Grant.

This grant can award students money annually, based on the number of awards available at the time of registration. Students may renew this award every fall and spring semester, if they maintain the minimum required GPA. The requirements for registration vary across each program.

However, even if you do not apply early to GCU, there are still plenty of scholarship opportunities available.

Apply Any Time

Unlike other universities, GCU does not have specific admissions deadlines. That means you can apply anytime for the opportunity to start a degree program on campus or online.

The steps to register for GCU are simple. Apply by the deadline, submit your transcripts and work closely with your enrollment representative to make sure you meet your individual needs. As long as you complete each task, you are one step closer to finding your purpose at GCU!
