Dept of Education fines largest Christian university in US for ‘falsely advertised’ cost of doctoral program

The largest Christian university in the nation on Tuesday was charged a fine by the Department of Education (ED) for misleading students.

According to a press release from the Department of Education, an investigation conducted by the office of Federal Student Aid (FSA) found GCU “lied” to over 7,500 former and current students about the cost of its doctoral programs over several years. The fine is for $37.7 million. 

The press release stated GCU “falsely advertised” a lower cost for its doctoral programs, adding that about 98% of students ended up paying more than the advertised cost.
