Understanding the advising transition process, criteria and milestones

College Advising Transition Criteria 2021-2022

ALL of the criteria listed MUST be met before you are eligible to transition to college advising. Eligibility is assessed at the conclusion of each semester. Transition information is forwarded via Eagle Email when you are eligible. Please note that the failure to meet milestones in a timely manner may render you ineligible to continue in a particular major. In these cases, you will work with Exploratory Advising to identify an alternate major to complete at FGCU.
