University Advising Services
Academic advising at FGCU begins at orientation. As students progress, professional advisors match individual needs with available resources in the field of study with the goal of keeping students on track to graduate.
Academic advisors guide students in their transition into and navigation of the university experience. Our staff helps students clarify their interests, skills and values in the context of class selection, major choice, and curriculum planning. We empower students to make informed academic decisions while helping them interpret policy and understand the university resources available to assist in their academic success.
Find your academic advisor
How do you know which advisor to see on campus? Your advisor is determined by a combination of your current class status and declared major.
Most freshmen students are advised by Exploratory Advising. In most cases, students are eligible to transition to college advising after they meet certain requirements. More information about the advising transition process can be found in the FAQ section. If you have already transitioned, you are advised by one of the following college advising offices:
