Students with at least 60 semester hours of transferable credit (as determined by the Office of Admissions) are not required to submit test scores for admission to the University. Transfer students must submit the application to the University as well as an official transcript from every postsecondary institution attended. Upper division transfer students who meet minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission into FGCU.
A transfer student must also have a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) as calculated by the University and be eligible to return as a degree-seeking student in good standing (with at least a 2.0 GPA) to the last institution attended. A transfer student also must have completed at least two college level math and English courses with grade of C or higher.
Each Transfer student admitted to FGCU is expected to demonstrate competency of foreign language or American Sign Language equivalent to the second high school level or higher (Spanish 2 for example). A limited number of students not meeting the foreign language requirement may be admitted; however, these students must fulfill the foreign language requirement prior to completion of the baccalaureate degree.
Individual programs may have additional requirements over and above that which is required to gain University admission including a supplemental application, minimum GPA, pre-requisites courses, and test scores. Students should verify specific program requirements prior to starting the application process.
FGCU has entered into articulation agreements with several public Florida State/Community Colleges for the purpose of facilitating transfer into FGCU degree programs. Applicants who have received an Associate of Science degree immediately prior to transferring to FGCU will be admitted if, and only if, the following requirements are met:
However, transfer applicants with an Associate of Science degree who matriculate to a post-secondary institution and fail to maintain at least a 2.0 GPA in additional courses, will not be eligible to transfer to FGCU. Admission is not guaranteed to programs designated as limited access. Some programs have additional program admission criteria.
