Transferring to FGCU was a really smart decision financially, socially and academically. My academics transferred kind of seamlessly.”
We welcome all types of transfer students
Florida Gulf Coast University considers you a transfer applicant if you have a high school diploma from a regionally accredited high school or GED and have completed at least 12 semester hours of transferable college credit after graduation from high school, but have not completed a bachelor’s degree.
High school students who are taking dual-enrollment courses should apply using the freshman (first time in college) application, unless they plan to complete 12 or more semester hours of college coursework after graduating from high school. We will still consider your college coursework for transfer credit, so please have your college transcripts sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
You are considered a second bachelor’s degree applicant if you have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university (including FGCU).
FGCU welcomes all students. DACA and Undocumented students should refer to the FGCU DACA & Undocumented FAQ for additional information. DACA and Undocumented students seeking in state tuition rates must complete a Non-Resident Tuition waiver in addition to submitting the online admissions application.
Use these resources to get started on the right path.
