Career Ready Eagles

Career Ready Eagles

As students develop in their programs of study they are also building important competencies for success in the workforce.  FGCU believes that one of the key components to student success is career planning and skill building.  The Career Ready Eagles module is designed to give you an understanding of how to start the planning process, the tools that are available to you, and how you can continue the growth through your years on campus.

Career Ready Eagles Requirements and Holds

Florida House Bill 1261 requires all incoming students to FGCU to complete the Career Ready Eagles.  If this is not accomplished, a hold will be placed on the student’s account after the drop/add period of the student’s second semester.  The hold will be removed once the requirement has been met.
