On December 14, a representative from Grand Canyon University (GCU) is coming to Palomar College to offer one-on-one appointments to those interested in transferring, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the transfer center, room SSC-24.
Despite its name GCU is a 3-hour drive from the Grand Canyon national park. GCU is a Christian university based in Phoenix Arizona. The GCU administration seeks to integrate the values of Christianity into all of GCU’s courses. However, they do not require that their students take upon any faith, unless the student is enrolled in their theology program.
GCU offers up to doctoral degrees in the following fields:
- Business & Management
- Nursing & Health Care
- Psychology & Counseling
- Teaching & School Administration
- Theology & Ministry
- Criminal, Political & Social Sciences
- Engineering & Technology
- Language & Communications
- Medical Studies & Athletic Sciences
- Performing Arts & Creative Design
The draw back to this school is that it is on the pricey side. For a typical 12-18-unit semester you can count on paying $8,250. As far as housing and meals costs go the price ranges from $3,550 to $6,100, varying on size and occupants.
GCU also offers a multitude of sport facilities, such as
- Swimming & Diving
