A Limited Access program is one where both program admission and registration in program classes are restricted to a certain number of students meeting pre-determined criteria. This means that you are initially accepted into the University as a pre-major AND then you must submit a supplemental application for consideration for acceptance into a Limited Access undergraduate major. Limited Access status is justified where student demand exceeds available resources (student/faculty ratios, instructional facilities, equipment, or specific accrediting requirements) or students require minimum skills to be admitted into the program (such as Music or PGA Golf Management). Limited Access programs have separate admissions processes and selection criteria. Not all students who meet the selection criteria are admitted into the Limited Access majors. The selection process is very competitive and space is limited in each incoming class.
The degree programs that require a supplemental application due to Limited Access are listed below. Admission to FGCU does not guarantee admission to any Limited Access program.
College of Health Professions and Social Work:
BSAT Athletic Training
BS Clinical Laboratory Science
College of Arts and Sciences:
Lutgert College of Business:

All undergraduate majors in the College of Health Professions and Social Work have a Selective Admissions Process, some of these programs are designated as Limited Access as described above. The Selective Admissions process requires students to meet certain selection criteria to be considered for admissions as a full major. A Limited Access program also requires students to meet certain selection criteria to be considered for admissions as a full major; however, there is a limit to the number of students that can be admitted into these programs. As a result of these parameters, some students who meet the selection criteria may not be admitted into Limited Access programs as they are very competitive.
