The Class Action, The City of Hialeah Employees' Retirement System v. Grand Canyon Education, Inc., et al., Case No.: 1:20-cv-00639, was filed in the US District Court for the District of Delaware on behalf of shareholders seeking damages for alleged violations of federal securities laws. Specifically, the lawsuit involves the Company's July 2018 spin-off of its education assets through a sale to purported non-profit entity, Grand Canyon University ("GCU"), whereby GCU would operate as a separate, non-profit entity. It is alleged, however, that in reality, GCU functioned as an off-balance-sheet entity to which the Company was able to funnel expenses and costs in exchange for a disproportionate amount of revenue, thereby inflating the Company's financial results.

On January 28, 2020, Citron Research published a report concluding that the Company is the "educational Enron," using a "captive non-reporting subsidiary" to "dump expenses and liabilities, while receiving a disproportionate amount of revenue at inflated margins in order to artificially inflate the stock price." The stock dropped as much as over 40 percent during the class period.
