Some warnings about transient classes
- Make sure you follow up with Financial Aid before you go to your transcient school and when you return to UWG. In addition, check your academic standing before attending the transcient school.
- If this course is a prerequisite for a course you wish to register for in the fall, contact the professor for your fall class. You will need an override to register for the fall class. You will also need to stay in contact with the professor, so that you are not dropped for missing prerequisites.
- As soon as your transient semester ends, request a transcript is sent to UWG.
- Monitor your UWG emails during the semester transitions.
