Advising Transition Criteria

Understanding advising transition process, criteria and milestones

College Advising Transition Criteria 2017-2018

ALL of the criteria listed MUST be met before you are eligible to transition to college advising. Eligibility is assessed at the conclusion of each semester. Transition information is forwarded via Eagle Email when you are eligible. Please note that the failure to meet milestones in a timely manner may render you ineligible to continue in a particular major. In these cases, you will work with UGS Advising to identify an alternate major to complete at FGCU.

MCHHS students may not exceed three attempts in total for all required pre-major courses in the program. In addition, students are only allowed a single repeat for one of the following prerequisite courses: BSC 1085C Anatomy & Physiology I and BSC 1086C Anatomy & Physiology II.
