Which system am I using?
You may be using the Old LoudCloud if you see a purple/blue menu bar or if your url starts with
lc-ugrad3.gcu.edu, or lc-grad3.gcu.edu.
You may be using the New LoudCloud (also referred to as the LMS) if your menu dropdown is on the left side or if your url starts with lms-trad.gcu.edu, lms-ugrad.gcu.edu, or lms-grad.gcu.edu.
Accessing your LoudCloud classes is as easy as logging into your GCU Portal. Depending on the degree program you are pursuing, your classroom could be hosted in different locations. It's best to access LoudCloud through the GCU Portal because it will always direct you to the correct website. You can access the GCU Portal by navigating to http://gcuportal.gcu.edu and selecting Student Access.
We generally advise against bookmarking the LoudCloud log in page since it's sure to cause confusion down the road.
There may be a time in which the GCU Portal may be temporarily inaccessible due to scheduled maintenance or a service interruption. During this time, LoudCloud can still be accessed by logging in directly. Depending on the course level and degree program you are seeking, your class will be located in one of the following links:
LoudCloud Undergraduate (course level up to 499):
LoudCloud Graduate / Doctoral 2 (course level between 500 - 999):
Currently, courses that take place in this platform may vary by program and degree level. If you aren't sure if your course is in this website, contact your counselor.
All GCU classes will eventually be located in the new LoudCloud environment. Here is a timeline of when to expect your courses in this system:
3/29/18 - Criminal Justice Graduate Classes
5/24/18 - College of Theology Graduate Classes
6/28/18 - College of Doctoral Studies
8/27/18 - All Traditional Ground Classes
11/1/18 - All new Graduate level classes
To be determined - All new Undergraduate classes
This new environment has three websites for the various types of courses available.
Online Undergraduate (course level up to 499):
Online Graduate / Doctoral (course level between 500-999):
Campus Classes (traditional classes with course level up to 499):
