Academic Standing Hold

 
 

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.

 

Why does a student earn an Academic Standing Hold?

Students not meeting the 2.00 CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) standard

 

What is the function of an Academic Standing Hold?

The academic standing hold ONLY prevents a student from the ability to register or make changes to FGCU courses via Gulfline. 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).
