Now that you are an Eagle, review each section below to get off to a flying start.
Claim your Eagle Access account to receive all future communications.
The next step in your enrollment process is to claim your Eagle Access account. Eagle Access will allow you access to the FGCU email system, EagleMail. Please be
advised, University offices and staff/faculty will be sending important information
to this address and may not respond to communication from personal email accounts.
It is your responsibility to routinely monitor and manage your EagleMail.
Claiming your Eagle Access account will also enable you to access other FGCU systems
such as Gulfline, which enables you to pay your admissions deposit, view your personal records, and
complete student-related tasks such as registering for Orientation and University
To claim your account, you'll need the following information. Please make sure to
enter this information as it appears on your admittance email.
Please complete all of the steps to claim your account before exiting. If you do not
complete all of the steps then you will need to contact the University Help Desk to
have account claiming reset on your account.
What if I need help?
The University Help Desk is available to assist you with questions or concerns. You
may reach the Help Desk at 239-590-1188 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to accept your offer of admission, you must submit a $200 non-refundable
deposit. In Gulfline, select the "Pay Admissions Deposit" tab. Pay with an e-check (no fee) or with a
credit card (2.85% convenience charge). Once you submit your deposit, we will hold
a seat for you and you will move forward in the new student process. The deposit deadline
for fall is May 1st, however, we may accept deposits after the deadline until the
term if full.
The admissions deposit is applicable to the term for which the student has been admitted
and is non-refundable. The deposit will be forfeited if the student does not enroll
in the deposited term. If a request to change terms is made after classes for the
original term of admission have begun, a deposit for the new term must be paid.
All new students must attend Eagle View Orientation (EVO). Directions on how to register for an orientation session for the Summer and Fall
semesters will be sent out starting in February. We will begin sending the EVO email
in October for students enrolling in the Spring semester. Register for EVO as soon
as you can in order to have the best selection of courses. Orientation is held in
late fall for the Spring term and throughout the summer for the Summer and Fall terms. Get orientation details

All students must establish residency as a Florida Resident or non-Florida resident
