Transient Student Status
Students wishing to attend another college or university and take courses there to count towards their degree at West Georgia must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher at West Georgia and must obtain permission of the dean of their major college. Students desiring to be transients elsewhere should also consult with their advisor and, if appropriate, the chair of their department. Transient status is given for one semester at a time, and the student must have the other college send a transcript of the courses taken to the Registrar at West Georgia in order to receive credit for the work.
Students who are denied transient status or who are not eligible for transient status and who enroll in another institution are not eligible to return to West Georgia until they have completed two semesters of enrollment in the other institution. Students suspended from West Georgia at the time of enrollment in the other institution must complete two semesters at the institution and satisfy the terms of their suspension.
Students who are required to participate in the Learning Support Program are not eligible for transient status until all program requirements are met.
The same limitations which apply to any other credits accepted by West Georgia from other colleges or universities also apply to credits earned under transient status.
