Student Success & Enrollment Management

Student Success & Enrollment Management Provides Comprehensive Services to Support Student Learning Outside the Classroom.

It starts with admitting students who view FGCU as their first choice, followed by creating a strong sense of belonging for students so they can connect immediately to campus through vibrant student life programs. Our outstanding academic advising helps students connect with their major quickly where a strong emphasis in experiential learning complements classroom instruction. Support services offered through many offices helps students persist and ultimately graduate in a timely manner.
