The Office of Admissions is responsible for receiving and evaluating transfer credit. The office evaluates the acceptability of total credits transferable to FGCU and identifies total credits accepted at the lower division (1000 and 2000 level courses). The college of the student's major assigns equivalent upper division (3000 and 4000 level) courses and graduate (5000 and 6000 level) courses in determining which courses are applicable toward specific degrees.
The University reserves the right to evaluate transfer courses on an individual basis. Age and concordance of content to current requirements may be factors in determining course transfer and acceptance toward degrees; individual colleges and programs have the authority to establish age standards for acceptance of transfer courses.
FGCU evaluates transfer coursework taken at another college or university, if that institution is accredited, or in candidacy for accreditation, by one of the following regional accrediting
