First Time In College Student Orientation

Welcome Class of 2025

FGCU is committed to ensuring all students' health and safety amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and has, therefore, made the decision to host all orientation sessions virtually. All First Time in College (FTIC)  students who are admitted for the summer or fall semester will attend a virtual, two-day Eagle View Orientation program that will acquaint incoming students with FGCU. 

The Eagle View Orientation Staff remains committed to providing the same level of information and support as new students embark on their transition, so please continue to check our website, your Eagle E-mail, and social media for the most up-to-date information. 

Orientation Dates

*Please note that registration for our programs closes one week in advance. For instance, students interested in attending our May 24th - May 25th program will have until May 17th to register for that program if it is open*
