Returning Students Admission Requirements


All applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible – up to twelve months before the requested entry date. The application and all official supporting documents must be submitted by the posted deadlines below for the requested entry term. Applications received or completed after the posted deadlines may not be processed for admission into the requested term due to space or time limitations and may be offered admission in the next available term.

Florida Gulf Coast University aims to promptly notify students of their admission status. Students are typically notified within three to four weeks, from the time that their application for admissions is completed. (All portions of application form completed and submitted with fee, all official transcripts and official test scores received) Students interested in applying for Financial Aid and Housing should also be aware of priority deadlines that exist.

A former student returning is any former FGCU degree-seeking undergraduate student who has not earned a degree, who has not been enrolled at FGCU in any of the last 3 terms, and who wishes to re-enroll. The former student must submit a new admission application by the appropriate application deadline. A new application fee is not required.

To be readmitted, a student must:

  • Be in good standing and eligible to return to the last institution attended, including FGCU.

Students who are not considered to be in good standing should refer to the standards of academic progress section of the university catalog. Students in good academic standing who are re-applying to limited access programs are NOT guaranteed re-admission to that program.

If after leaving FGCU, the former student attended one or more institutions, official transcript(s) must be submitted to the Office of Admission for evaluation purposes. If a final transcript from a previous institution was never submitted for the last term of admission, an official transcript will need to be submitted to the Office of Admission in order to release the transcript hold.
