You must take the TEAS for GCU. Cost really depends on many factors. If your pre req GPA is 3.7+ you qualify for a scholarship through GCU of 3500/semester, but you must maintain a 3.5 GPA or you will be bumped down to the next level of scholarships. There are scholarships for pre req GPAs of 3.5 and 3.25 (2500 and 1500 respectively). The program is five semesters. You can do the traditional program in which those five semesters are spring/fall. Or you can choose the fast track, which would include summers, and takes only 20 months. Costs also vary slightly whether or not you can waive the health insurance (if you have health insurance, it's waived). The total cost for each semester worst case scenario before any scholarships is around 9-10k per semester (base tuition is 8,250/semester). But after scholarships, my loans and grants would take care of the rest so there is no "out of pocket" type cost to me. Though I am still applying for other scholarships in order to reduce the amount of debt I would have. For me, after the GCU scholarship and my grants, I would be borrowing or finding other scholarships for about 4-5k per semester. Which I don't think is bad at all. I'll finish much sooner and be able to start working a year or more before I could if I did the CEP.
