information below for guidance and don't worry, Non-Traditional Admissions is here
to help you every step of the way.
The first step after acceptance is to claim your Eagle Access account. This will allow you access to FGCU accounts necessary to complete your next steps
and to achieve success as an FGCU Eagle. After claiming your account you will have
MyFGCU, a central student portal that allows you to navigate FGCU systems (further explained
below) in a single convenient location.
Gulfline, which enables you to submit your admissions deposit (required prior to orientation
registration), and complete other optional student related tasks, such as applying
for on-campus housing.
FGCU Eagle Mail is your student email. Please note: This is the email that all university business
will be communicated from. University offices, including faculty/staff, 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.
Degree Works is an advising and degree-planning tool if you are transferring in with college credits.
View how your courses transferred in an easy-to-read report (degree audit).
To claim your account, you'll need the following information. Please make sure to
enter this information as it appears on your admittance email.
University Identification Number (UIN) - located on your acceptance letter and email.
The process to claim your account must be completed in one-sitting. If you do not
complete all of the steps then you will need to contact the University Help Desk to
have your account reset at 239-590-1188 or email@example.com.
In order to accept your offer of admission and confirm your enrollment, you must submit
a $200 non-refundable deposit. This $200 will be deducted from your cost of attendance
your first semester. In Gulfline, select the "Pay Admissions Deposit" tab. Once you submit your deposit, we will hold
a place for you in the upcoming class that you have been admitted to.
If you want to change your start term after classes begin, you will need to submit
a new deposit for that term.
Your next step to becoming an FGCU Eagle is to complete Orientation. During orientation
you will learn helpful information to ease your transition to FGCU. You will meet
with advising and register for classes for your first semester.
As a non-traditional student, you are able to select an orientation that best suits
you. Please contact the Non-Traditional Admissions Team and they will review your options with you.
All students must establish residency as a Florida Resident or non-Florida resident
for tuition purposes. New students are considered non-Florida residents until proper documentation is received.
Non-Florida residents also need to complete this process. Completing residency is
essential for correct tuition billing, financial aid awarding, and merit scholarship
eligibility. Log into your Future Eagle account to complete the residency form. Click the View link next to your submitted application to view your list of supplemental items then
complete the Florida Residency for Tuition Purposes Form.
