Biden Puts Largest Christian University in US In Its Crosshairs After Already Massive Fine

The Biden administration’s Federal Trade Commission is taking aim at the largest Christian university in the U.S. in a new lawsuit.

Grand Canyon University is the largest Christian university in the U.S., with over 100,000 students enrolled and over 85,000 online students as of fall 2022, according to its website.

The FTC alleged that GCU engaged in deceptive business practices with its doctoral programs and that it also engaged in illegal telemarketing practices, according to the federal complaint filed in the District of Arizona.

“Grand Canyon deceived students by holding itself out as a non-profit institution and misrepresenting the costs and number of courses required to earn doctoral degrees,” Samuel Levine, director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, said in a Wednesday news release.

“We will continue to aggressively pursue those who seek to take advantage of students.”

GCU’s “marketing activities have also resulted in millions of abusive telemarketing calls to consumers who have specifically requested that Defendants not solicit them, and to individuals on the National Do Not Call Registry,” the lawsuit alleges.

The FTC also alleged that GCU misled potential doctoral students about the time required to finish the accelerated doctoral program, according to the complaint.

Grand Canyon University is accused of violating the FTC Act and telemarketing sales rules and requested the U.S. District Court in Arizona to rule that GCU must pay prospective students for the alleged violations.

The Department of Education fined GCU more than $37 million in October after an investigation found the school “consistently misrepresented doctoral program costs,” according to a department press release.

    I’m not a Biden fan but GCU’s supposed shady marketing practices were in the news recently. Don’t know if the allegations are true. But let’s shut down all large Universities. It’s all indoctrination anyway. All text books and courses need to be rewritten. Everything we were taught is a lie. MAGA.

    • Sam says:

      Conservative/Christian Universities are THE ONLY schools that teach Our History, the Constitution and Civics. They do NOT rewrite Our History, tell students that they may be a different gender, teach them Marxism and that the US is Evil.

    • Melissa says:

      As a parent of two GCU students, I can tell you they are a fantastic school and should NOT be shut down or unfairly targeted. They are a low cost, Christian school with great programs. Just because they are large does not mean they are corrupt. As a MAGA supporter, you of all people should know you can’t believe everything you read.

    What is a picture of that rotten scum Biden on this story for, Disgusting scum

  • John Gault says:

    How can a governmental department fine anyone without their day in court? Has GCU been found guilty of anything in a court of law?

    • Sandy says:

      No. It is the Demons continual LIES. They are on the warpath to Destroy Conservative Universities so the Left can control young peoplr’s minds. Marxism.

  • J. says:
