Step 2 – Connect With Your Personal Admissions Advisor

If you submit your fast application online, your personal admissions advisor will contact you by phone, text, and/or email to set up a time to discuss your future at Hodges U. This discussion may be held over the phone or in-person at our Fort Myers campus.

The purpose of the introduction discussion is to help you determine if Hodges University is the right fit for your higher education needs and to collaboratively build the custom pathway for your education at Hodges University.
