FGCU International Services



The International Services Office provides a number of social, cultural and informational programs throughout the year for students, faculty, staff and the public.
We encourage you to volunteer by helping with one of the many events hosted by the International Services Office.

Study Abroad Information Sessions, which give a brief overview of study abroad opportunities and procedures, are scheduled routinely each semester, as is the Study Abroad Fair.  Information sessions on specific topics of importance to International students (International Student Orientations, U.S. Income Tax, Optional Practical Training) are also scheduled routinely each semester.

The annual International Reception (Fall semester), and International Celebration (Spring semester), along with occasional topical programs provide opportunities for persons interested in international education to be introduced, to share cultures and experiences, and learn about world events and issues. Events are held on campus and are open to the public.

Please view our Calendar of Events for more details (events and information session times, dates and locations are subject to change).
