Spirit - The FGCU Story

Welcome Counselors!
The FGCU Undergraduate Admissions Office appreciates the mentoring you offer your students as you prepare them for their journey through the college and university admission process. Because we understand the importance of having information that is current, we would like to provide you with resources that will help guide your students through FGCU admissions with the hopes for a smooth transition from high school to FGCU.

High School Counselor Summer/Fall Admissions Updates – April 30th, 2015

The FGCU Office of Undergraduate Admissions has had another incredible year; we’ve admitted over 7,100 students for Fall 2015 and have received 12,700 applications—a 4% increase in admitted students. Thank you for another wonderful year; we've really enjoyed working with you and your students and look forward to seeing you in the Fall!

We have reached that time in the admission’s cycle where our number of admitted students has reached capacity.

For the next several weeks, we will continue to monitor student confirmations (admitted students who choose to commit to attend FGCU) to see how many additional students we can admit. At this time, an application will remain on the hold decision list for consideration. We will do our best to accommodate as many students as we can and those decisions will be made over the next couple of weeks. Please ask students to continue to check their status online via Gulfline.

In order to be competitive for admission, students must have a 3.0 weighted GPA or higher with 460 or higher on each of the SAT sections and/or 19’s or higher on the ACT sub-sections.  

  • Meeting these minimums DOES NOT guarantee admission.  Students with lower than these subsection scores should plan to retest and e-mail us at to let us know the intended test date, although test scores received after February 15thmay not meet the Fall 2015 priority admission deadline- students should have a backup plan for the Fall semester.
  • Average competitive student applicant profile for Fall 2015
    • 3.70 Weighted GPA
    • Composite scores: 24 ACT and/or 1567 SAT

Dates, Reminders, and Next Steps:

Eagle View Orientation (new student orientation)

  • Registration is OPEN! Students will be able to register and select their session by logging on to Gulfline no later than May 1, 2015
  • Eagle View Orientation in mandatory for all new FGCU students in order to register for classes.


New: Students may only apply for housing AFTER being admitted (through their Gulfline student portal). 


  • We will process residency information for admitted students when we are able to. We do not need residency information to simply complete an application or make an admission decision. Our top priority is processing application documents first in order to make a timely decision. 

PIN Numbers

  • Students will be emailed a PIN the evening they have been admitted. They should check their junk mail if they cannot find it. They will use the PIN to log onto Gulfline where they will be prompted to set up security questions.
  • PINs will not be provided via fax or telephone. Request for PINs must be made in person or writing to the Registrar’s Office.
