FGCU International Services

J Visa


All FGCU sponsored international students are overseen by International Services.  Both students and the university are responsible for compliance with many U.S. Immigration and government regulations and must work together to ensure that these obligations are met.   Students also have many opportunities to fully participate in the academic experience and local community through such things as employment, social and cultural activities and community events. International Services is your resource base throughout your enrollment at FGCU and provides advisors to assist you with immigration, questions, needs, problems and overall guidance to have a successful experience at FGCU and in the U.S.

Students are encouraged to schedule an appointment with one of our staff members to facilitate your needs.

  • Student Responsibilities
    As an international student you have certain responsibilities with the USCIS and the university to comply with regulations, provide accurate and timely information and meet deadlines as indicated by International Services.
  • Emergencies
    If you have an emergency, that needs to be handled by our office outside of business hours, please contact the Campus Police at 590-1911 (1911 on campus) who will communicate with International Services to assist you.
