Undergraduate Admissions invites specially selected incoming first-time-in-college (FTIC) students to participate in the Step Ahead summer bridge program. Students are selected based on their high school GPA and standardized test scores. The Step Ahead Summer Bridge Program is an invite only program. Students granted admission to FGCU through the Step Ahead Program are required to enroll and complete Step Ahead-designated coursework during the summer and fall terms.

Selected students will receive admission into the Step Ahead Program via email and postal mail, and will receive a follow-up email from a Step Ahead Coordinator with action steps required to reserve a seat in the Program. Space is limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
