We Are Honors
Approximately 1200 FGCU students call the Honors College home. We have student representation from each academic degree program.
Honors College Probation Policy (Updated May 2022)
The Honors College at FGCU expects all members of our community to uphold and support high academic and ethical standards. Students falling short of those standards will be placed on probation in order to communicate the importance of our expectations and to provide a period of time for students to correct problems. This policy describes what actions result in probation, the terms of probation, and ways a probationary period can end.
Students admitted to the Honors College may be placed on probation for:
Honors College Community Standards
