A decision to move one Arizona university closer to non-profit status is expected soon. Grand Canyon University leaders are expecting the school's accreditor, the Higher Learning Commission, to vote this week on the private Christian school's plan to achieve non-profit status.
According to the "Arizona Republic," GCU would also need the approval of the U.S. Department of Education, IRS, and the Arizona Board for Private Postsecondary Education.
Switching to a non-profit status would allow GCU to receive research grants and accept donations.
University leaders are optimistic the commission will approve their application.
