All CHPSW majors are either Selective or Limited Access Programs. Although students are initially accepted into FGCU as a pre-major for the program of their choice they must complete either a Supplemental Application or Declaration of Major Form to be considered for acceptance into the full-major. All supplemental applications must be submitted by the specific departmental deadline, please visit the www.fgcu.edu/chpsw for links to the various departmental programs.
A selective access major is one where a student must meet certain selection criteria to be considered for admission as a full major. In contrast, a limited access major is one where a student must meet certain selection criteria to be considered for admission as a full major, but there is a limit to the number of students that can be accommodated in the program. Therefore, in a limited access program some students who meet the selection criteria may not be admitted. Limited access program admissions are very competitive.
All General Education courses and Program Prerequisites, as well as other program-specific requirements, must be completed to be considered for acceptance into a Limited Access or Selective Access Program.
You can access the Supplemental Applications by clicking on the major below:
Make sure to inquire as to the departments deadline date for Supplemental Applications and plan accordingly. Supplemental Applications are not typically accepted after the deadline date.
