Students Visiting MGA

  • Are you currently attending an accredited college/university and wish to take courses at MGA for one semester and transfer those courses back to your home institution?
  • You are not seeking to complete a degree at MGA.

Admissions and Requirements

Students wishing to enroll at MGA as a visiting student (transient) must submit an official application and must have their home institution send an official transient permission form to the Office of Admissions. Other documents required will include an immunization form and lawful presence document. Any other documents required, as determined by review of the application, will be listed in the students file.
