Center for Academic Achievement
The Center for Academic Achievement is dedicated to assist students to return to and maintain good academic standing. Your academic standing hold has significant impact on funding for college (now and in the future), course registration, and ultimately, your ability to graduate with a degree. The staff of CAA are dedicated to assisting students in their pursuit of Academic Success and Graduation.
The Academic Standing Hold is placed on a student account by the Office of the Registrar, when a student’s Cumulative Grade Point Average falls below a 2.00.
Details can be reviewed in the Academic Standing Policy.
This Academic Hold ONLY prevents a student from the ability to register or make changes to FGCU courses via Gulfline. The Academic Hold can be adjusted to allow for future registration once a student has completed the Academic Hold requirements listed below. The Office of the Registrar will only remove the Academic Hold once the students Cumulative Grade Point Average has reached a 2.00 or higher. Students will be required to complete requirements through the Center for Academic Achievement each semester their Cumulative Grade Point Average is below a 2.00, so that the Academic Hold can continue to be reopened to allow for future registration and to assist in the student pursuit of academic success.
If a student is experiencing other limitations (i.e. unable to view grades) you may have several holds in effect on your account. It is critical to begin efforts towards hold removal promptly to allow processing time for departments, schools and agencies to send required information to remove holds. Most holds restrict students from progressing with registration. Students should familiarize themselves to check holds via GULFLINE: (choose Student & Financial Aid option, then Student Records).
