Student Progress Work Group


The SPG is a focal point of the work of the Task Force on Student Success that comprises the President’s Cabinet serving as the steering committee. This work group will focus on policies and practices affecting behaviors that impact student academic progress (e.g., change in majors; student holds on registration and impediments to graduation such as service-learning hours; withdrawals, transfer out, etc.). The SPG will carefully consider what changes need to be instituted to promote student progression to timely graduation. This work group will also be charged with the oversight of the “Soar in 4” and the “Soaring Higher” programs. The “Soaring Higher” program will allow all FGCU undergraduate students, who graduate within four years and are admitted to an FGCU graduate degree program, to receive a tuition waiver for the second year of graduate school providing they are studying full-time and making satisfactory academic progress.
