Largest Christian university in US faces record fine after federal probe into alleged deception

AP Education Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) — The country’s largest Christian university is being fined $37.7 million by the federal government amid accusations that it misled students about the cost of its graduate programs. Grand Canyon University, which has more than 100,000 students mostly in online programs, faces the largest fine of its kind ever dealt by the U.S. Education Department. The university previously denied any wrongdoing and says it’s being unfairly targeted in retaliation for an ongoing lawsuit. An Education Department investigation found that Grand Canyon lied to more than 7,500 current and former students about the cost of doctoral programs.
