Item 8.01. Other Information.

Grand Canyon Education, Inc. (together with its subsidiaries, the "Company" or "GCE") is an education services company dedicated to serving colleges and universities. On July 17, 2020, the Company's most significant partner, Grand Canyon University ("GCU"), announced its plans for the traditional campus Fall semester. Those plans include moving back the start of instruction for the Fall semester from August 24, 2020 to September 7, 2020, beginning the semester with online instruction for all students, providing for residential students to move in during the week of September 21, 2020, beginning face-to-face instruction on September 28, 2020, eliminating some holiday breaks, and adding an additional week of instruction in December. The change in the start date for GCU's ground traditional students will have the effect of moving tuition revenue for all GCU traditional students, and certain ancillary revenue for residential students, from the 3rd quarter of 2020 to the 4th quarter of 2020, and the change in the move-in date for GCU's residential students will reduce Fall semester room and board revenue for the university by three weeks.

Although the complete financial impact of COVID-19 on Fall semester enrollment at the Company's partner institutions will not be known until all of the institutions begin the Fall semester, the changes described above at GCU will impact the Company's service revenues under its Master Services Agreement with GCU. However, based on current enrollment trends for its partner institutions, including GCU's ground traditional and online students, the Company currently expects to generate service revenues in the second half of 2020 in an amount that approximates the current analyst consensus estimates.

It is not possible for us to completely predict the duration or magnitude of the adverse results of the COVID-19 outbreak and its effect on our business, results of operation or financial condition at this time, but such effect may be material in future quarters. We will be providing more information on our 2nd half outlook on our 2nd quarter 2020 Earnings Call scheduled for 4:30 pm Eastern time on August 4, 2020.

Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results and will not necessarily be accurate indications of the times at, or by, which such performance or results will be achieved. Forward-looking statements are based on information available at the time those statements are made or management's good faith belief as of that time with respect to future events and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual performance or results to differ materially from those expressed in or suggested by the forward-looking statements.

Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date the statements are made. You should not put undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. We assume no obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect actual results, changes in assumptions, or changes in other factors affecting forward-looking information, except to the extent required by applicable securities laws. If we do update one or more forward-looking statements, no inference should be drawn that we will make additional updates with respect to those or other forward-looking statements.
