Enjoy Honors advantages in and outside the classroom
In the classroom
Honors students in good standing are granted priority registration over other undergraduates. Typically, students' registration dates are determined by the number of credit hours they have completed, allowing those closer to graduation to register earlier. However, Honors students register on the same date as seniors with earned credit hours of 110 and higher.
The Office of Undergraduate Studies Advising supports Honors students as their first-year advisor when students join as First-Time-in-College students. The office also supports students throughout the remainder of their time at FGCU with Honors-related advising.
One of the distinctive features of a collegiate Honors education is hands-on, student-driven learning in and outside the classroom. Honors classes are taught by dedicated faculty and average 20 students per class, allowing for engaging discussions, experiential learning activities and critical thinking opportunities that are not feasible in larger, mainstream courses.
