Grand Canyon


Grand Canyon Education (GCE), formerly part of Grand Canyon University (GCU), became its own entity in July 2018 after the Higher Learning Commission approved GCU’s application to become a nonprofit institution. GCE will work in close partnership with GCU to provide admissions and enrollment support.

Members of our admissions and enrollment teams work in a dynamic environment on GCU’s Phoenix campus. All employees are provided with paid training to help each team member start on a successful path.

We also hire remote counselor positions for both our traditional and online campuses. These positions work from home offices supporting student enrollment activities in territories located throughout the country.

Inside Admissions

Main Campus - Admissions Counselors

Admissions Counselors are located on GCU’s main campus in Phoenix, but also travel to assigned territories to work with school administrators and participate in college fairs. Their primary role is to counsel, enroll and retain qualified high school or transfer students for GCU’s ground campus degree programs through phone and in-person contact.

Online - Admissions Counselors

Admissions Counselors assist students seeking to continue their education online. Admissions counselors are based out of the GCE administration complex in Phoenix. This role is the first impression for prospective online students and fosters counselor-student relationships. Admissions counselors are adept at advising students as they begin their degree program to ensure long-term student success and retention.
