A transient student is a "visiting" student who wishes to take course work at UWG for one semester and then return to his or her previously enrolled college (referred to as the "home" college).
In addition to submitting a completed admission application and $40 application fee each time they wish to attend UWG, a transient student must also submit to the Office of Admissions a Transient Approval Letter from the Registrar or Dean of his or her "home" college. This transient letter must state that the student is in good academic standing at the "home" college. In case of doubt, the Director of Admissions may classify the applicant as a transfer applicant and require the applicant to comply with all transfer admission requirements.
Enrollment as a transient student is limited to one consecutive semester. A transient student wishing to continue enrollment at UWG as a degree seeking transfer student must reapply as a transfer degree seeking student and fulfill all transfer admission requirements. Application as a transfer student and all required transfer admission documents must be received by the application and document deadline dates. Transfer credit into graduate programs is limited and may not be permitted by all programs.
Since transient students are "visiting" students and not degree seeking UWG students, transient students are not eligible for financial assistance from UWG. Transient students must make financial assistance arrangements with their "home" college.
