    I just had a meeting with an advisor last week. For the fast track you need to have all of your classes done. There is also a class that they require which is 8 weeks and online. This must be done before you start any of your courses. Everyone says how expensive Grand Canyon is but honestly it is not much more than ASU. Dont get me wrong, I am an ASU Grad (business degree) but if you cant get in to ASU this beats waiting around to get accepted into a community college program. As for the religion, it didnt seem to be a huge issue. You do need credit in religious courses but your options are really broad and you can take like a history type class.
    It isn't that much more?? I thought it was double the cost of ASU

    I was actually going to start taking classes there and when my application finally went through, I received a notecard in the mail advising me that the undergrad tuition was $645 (around this amount, but definitely over $600).

    That's a lot. That's almot the cost of a single class at NAU.

    Yep, it is crazy!

    It's not that much. I think it is half of that but it is still a lot. Costs me about $1000 a course but with tuition reimbursement at work and taking things slow I am not having to pay out of pocket yet. Our hospital has an affiliation with Grand Canyon and we get a 10% discount so otherwise I guess it would be 1100-1200 a course otherwise, but still not $600+ a credit hour.

    I could have sworn that the postcard I received said $645 a credit hour. I checked online, here is the link.

    Most private schools are more expensive. I am unsure if they are still private as they were bought out a few years back, but either way, they are very expensive. At least expensive for me. I don't even like paying ASU's tuition, it is high as well, but about $250 less than GCU per credit hour.

    I guess that makes more sense since I am taking classes online and the posted rate on your link says $395/credit. I guess traditional classes cost more?

    thanks for sharing the information. how much is tuition? i searched their site and could not find it. i remember it being around $500-$600 per credit hour? do they have a few starts and a traditional program also? i am amazed at the no wait. are you going to pursue a start date with them and if you don't mind sharing when you would be starting. i appreciate you sharing the information even if it is a link to information on their website.
    i am not sure what the tuition for the traditional program is, but the rn-bsn online program is $395 per credit hour. i am starting in october and so far i have been able to qualify for financial aid. i am hoping that the online program will be ok. if anyone has info on the online program i'd love to hear about it!

    I just applied to the online program starting the end of this month (October). Tuition is $395 but Banner employees get 20% off that so it's $316/credit hour.
    I applied for financial aid to pay for the classes upfront and then i will turn in my grades for reimbursement and pay my loan off as i go...

    Is there anyone out there that has been through the online program? I heard it is pretty intense. One of my fellow RN's at work dropped it because she said you have to jump through hoops all the time. I went to school at Glendale Community College so i think i have the hoop jumping experience down
