I am finishing up my Bachelors at CGU and beginning to research Masters programs. I have seen a lot of different opinions online regarding the reputation of GCU and the ability to get in to a masters program with this degree. My bachelors is in Nursing and I am looking for a masters program in administration or public health.

Great question.

As you probably know Grand Canyon University holds regional accreditation from the North Central Association of Colleges & Schools. Regional accreditation is the "gold standard" of college accreditation and being that it is the most widely accepted students have the most flexibility when transferring credits or applying to graduate programs.

GetEducated also gathers verified student as well as public and employer review of online degree programs.

While all of these reviews are not for your specific degree program, they will give you an idea of the GCU's reputation in the broader world.

Finally, scope out those on LinkedIn who hold a bachelors from GCU. Ask if they had issues getting into grad school. This may be the best source of information for you!

Best of luck!
