Grand Canyon University has sued the federal government over its nonprofit status.

In 2018, the school sold off assets that allowed it to be categorized by the IRS as a nonprofit, affording access to both tax and federal funding benefits.

But the U.S. Education Department did not follow the IRS’s lead, and continued to categorize GCU as a for-profit.

To find out what this means, The Show spoke with Rick Seltzer, projects editor at Inside Higher Ed.
