Admitted Graduate Students


Graduate Orientation

Congratulations on your recent admission to FGCU! All newly admitted Spring 2018 Masters students will receive a communication with information related to orientation. A mandatory, non-refundable $35.00 orientation fee will be applied to your student account after course registration has occurred, regardless of attendance.

Please contact if you have any questions regarding Spring 2018 Graduate Orientation.


Establishing residency is a state mandated requirement that must be renewed each time a new application is created. You can find more information on the Graduates Studies Residency page.


Check to see if you have any holds before you begin course registration. To view your holds: log in to Gulfline, click on the "Student" tab, select "Student Records," and select "View Holds." Some holds will prohibit you from specific processes (i.e. IM hold will prevent you from registering for classes).


Please note, if you have an immunization hold (IM) on your account, please contact Student Health Services.
