Transfers with less than 30 transferrable hours:

Students who are lower division transfer applicants (those with at least 12 but fewer than 30 semester hours of transferable credit as determined by the Office of Admissions) must meet all requirements of incoming first-time-in-college applicants as described in the above section.  These students must also have a minimum cumulative transfer  GPA of 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale) as calculated by the University and be eligible to return as a degree- seeking student in good standing to the last institution attended. Lower division transfer students who meet minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission into FGCU.

Transfers with 30 or more but less than 60 transferrable hours:

Lower division transfer students with 30 or more but less than 60 transferrable hours must have a minimum transfer GPA of 2.5 (based on a 4.0 scale) as calculated by the University, and be eligible to return as a degree seeking student in good standing to the last institution attended. In addition, students must have successfully completed, with a C or Higher, at least one English Composition course and one college level mathematics course of at least three (3) semester credit hours. High school transcripts may be required to demonstrate completion of the foreign language admission requirement. Students not meeting these requirements must then meet the requirements for transfer students with less than 30 transferrable hours. Lower division transfer students who meet minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission into FGCU.

A limited number of lower division transfer students not meeting admission criteria may be admitted if the student can reasonably be expected to complete satisfactory academic work.  Factors such as the number of post-secondary hours completed, grades obtained, coursework completed, and length of time since high school graduation are some of the factors that will be considered.
