Apply for Aid - Transient Students
How to Apply for Aid
A transient student is a student who seeks temporary admission to a college and transfers the credit back to their home college. The student's host college cannot determine their financial aid eligibility. Middle Georgia State University's financial aid office will only process consortium agreements with other University System of Georgia schools in an effort to assist students with federal financial aid processing. Please contact our office for instructions on completing a consortium agreement if applicable. The following process should be adhered to for HOPE scholarship only eligible students:
MGA HOPE eligible students enrolling as a transient student at another institution:
If the Middle Georgia State University student is a HOPE Scholarship recipient, they should print and submit the MGA HOPE Transient Request form to MGA'S financial aid office. When the student's eligibility for the HOPE Scholarship has been determined, the information will be submitted electronically to their host college. To receive the HOPE Scholarship as a Transient Student, both colleges must be recognized as HOPE eligible institutions. It is important to apply early to avoid costly processing delays.
HOPE eligible students attending MGA as a Transient student from another institution:
If the Transient student is a Hope Scholarship recipient, they should apply for the Hope Scholarship as a Transient student at their home college. When their eligibility has been determined, the home college will send the information to Middle Georgia State University's financial aid office electronically. It is important to apply early to avoid costly processing delays.
