Information for Newly Admitted Graduate Students

Graduate Orientation

Congratulations on your graduate admission to FGCU. All newly admitted doctorate and master’s students will receive information related to orientation via email prior to the start of your admission term. 


Establishing Florida residency is a state-mandated requirement that must be renewed each time a new application is created. Find more information on the Graduate Studies Residency page.


Some holds will prohibit you from specific processes — an immunization hold will prevent you from registering for classes, for instance. Before you begin course registration determine if you have any holds in Gulfline: Go to the student section, select "Student Records" and select "View Holds."


If you have an immunization hold on your account, contact Student Health Services.

Course Registration

Degree-seeking and certificate students: Register on Gulfline or with the assistance of your program advisor/coordinator.

Post-baccalaureate non-degree students: The Office of Research & Graduate Studies does not register students for classes. If you are not able to register, find the appropriate contact and provide your name, UIN and the course CRN:

Activate your student email account at the FGCU EagleMail website.

If you need assistance with Eagle Mail, contact the Help Desk via email or call (239) 590-1188.


We use the Canvas learning management system for online, hybrid and on-campus classes.

Gulfline is FGCU's convenient online student system that will allow you to register for classes, pay tuition, check class schedules, review grades, register vehicles, and order books. To log in, you will need your University Identification Number (UIN) and Personal Identification Number (PIN). Tuition statements and final grades are provided through Gulfline — they will not be mailed to you. For Gulfline assistance, contact the Office of the Registrar via email or by calling 239-590-7980.
