Welcome Class of 2028

We could not be more excited to welcome you to FGCU. Orientation is an opportunity to meet new and current students, learn important information for starting college successfully, and ask any questions you may have. 

How To Register

 Registering for Orientation is as easy as 1-2-3!

1. Keep an eye on your email- Admitted students will receive an email with information about next steps, including registering for Orientation.

2. Activate your Eagle Email - This is your official student account that will be used for your FGCU email and more - like registering for Orientation. 

3. Enroll in to 2 Factor Authentication (Duo Mobile)- Enrolling in two-factor authentication is mandatory for all students and provides an additional layer of security that guards your personal information in our University systems.

4. In order to accept your offer of admission, you must log into your Future Eagle Account and answer your Decision Reply question. This is located on the Home tab of your Future Eagle Account, at the right-hand column under "Forms."

After accepting your offer of admission, you will be able to submit your $200 non-refundable deposit. To submit your Admission Deposit, go to your Home tab on your Future Eagle Account.  From there, look for "Payment Due" and select Submit Payment for $200.00 USD. Once you submit your deposit, we will hold a seat for you and you will move forward in the new student process. The deposit deadline for Fall is May 1st, however, we may accept deposits after the deadline until the term is full.

The admission deposit is applicable to the term for which the student has been admitted and is non-refundable. The deposit will be forfeited if the student does not enroll in the deposited term. If a request to change terms is made after classes for the original term of admission have begun, a deposit for the new term must be paid.

5. Once your admission deposit has been processed, you will receive an email from orientation@fgcu.edu to complete your orientation registration and will be able to register for an orientation session date.
