If you are a newly-admitted FGCU student please be sure to sign up for an Eagle View Orientation session. As part of this session you will be meeting with an academic advisor who will assist you in registering for classes for your major.

Program Admission Requirements

Degree-seeking students are classified as pre-majors prior to formal acceptance into a U.A. Whitaker College of Engineering (WCE) major. As pre-majors, students may enroll in:

  • Lower level (1000-2999) courses to satisfy General Education and Common Program Prerequisite requirements;
  • Lower level electives; and
  • EGS 1006L  from the Engineering Common Core courses, if course pre-requisites are met.

Pre-majors may not enroll in Engineering Common Core classes beyond EGS 1006L without first being admitted to an Engineering Major or in any upper level (3000-4999) Required Courses for the Major without meeting the course pre-requisites and prior approval, where appropriate, by the WCE Academic Advisor.

Admission to Florida Gulf Coast University does not guarantee acceptance into a WCE major. Students are accepted into a WCE major upon satisfaction of the following:

  1. Admission to FGCU as a degree seeking student in good academic standing.
  2. Attendance at a Freshman Transition Workshop or Transfer Student Orientation session.
  3. Completion of Calculus I with a grade of C or higher.  Exceptions may be made for AP/IB credit with approval of the WCE Academic Advisor.
