Doctoral students often complete a residency as part of their degree program. On GCU’s residency website, students can review their residency information, register for their attending week, submit travel information, and review hotel information once it is available.
If you are accessing the site for the first time, you will see a page with residency information specific to your residency type (Doctoral or Master of Divinity). Review the information and then check the box at the bottom to acknowledge your understanding.
Login Issues and FAQ
Just as the message says, the best person to contact for this issue is your counselor. All students can access residency.gcu.edu, but only students with a residency course on their schedule will have access to the site’s features.
