Transient Student Status
Students wishing to complete classes at another college or university to count towards their degree at West Georgia must maintain good standing at West Georgia and hold active student status at UWG during transient studies. Prior to taking the course(s), students must complete a Transient Status Permission Form, which includes the signatures of their advisor, the chair of the department in which the credit shall be granted, and the dean/designee of their major college. If the transient status involves study abroad, students must also obtain the signature of the Director of International Services and Programs. International students seeking transient status must obtain the signature of the Director of International Services and Programs. It is each student's responsibility to consult the Undergraduate Transfer Course Equivalents link, or contact the Registrar’s Office to determine if the course will be accepted as transfer credit at UWG and count toward a given degree. Transient status is given for one semester at a time, and students 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. For final term transient status restrictions, see Graduation Policies in the Undergraduate Catalog.
