Graduate Programs Advising

Get all your Graduate Program questions answered

We promote and support student learning and success in a collaborative environment by providing transformative academic advising and educational programming. We empower students to make informed decisions about their academic experiences and professional aspirations.


University Advising Services (UAS) is available to assist students in the following ways throughout the Fall 2020 semester:

  • ADVISING APPOINTMENTS: Students can schedule one-on-one advising appointments through the online appointment scheduling system. Students should utilize this option when needing intensive advising assistance such as: change of major/concentration, Fall 2020 graduation check, Internship qualifications/application, future course planning/plan to graduation and transfer credit evaluation questions. Virtual appointments are conducted using Microsoft Teams, and require use of your FGCU EagleMail address.

  • EMAIL: Students may email or for assistance.

The Graduate Academic Advisor is responsible for answering administrative questions, providing course approval, reviewing program requirements, evaluating academic transcripts and articulating transfer courses, preparing degree audits, and certifying graduation for all graduate students. In addition, faculty serve as career advisors to assist students with career development. Students are expected to take primary responsibility to meet with their academic advisor and career advisor on a regular basis to tailor their program of study to meet their individual needs and to insure completion of all requirements for graduation.
