Transient Students

A "transient" student is indicating that he or she is currently enrolled as a degree-seeking student at another institution. In this status, transient students are enrolled at Middle Georgia State University for a brief period (usually a semester) to obtain course-work that they plan to transfer back to their home institution to satisfy degree requirements at that institution. Transient students are required to furnish a letter (transient permission letter or form) from their home institution indicating that they are permitted to attend MGA temporarily. Usually the transient permission documentation includes the courses they are expected to take. The University does not evaluate (for transfer credit purposes) any transcripts that may be furnished by "transient" students, transcripts are not required. Transient students are advised to request a transcript be sent to their home institution at the end of the term so that their course-work at Middle Georgia State University may be posted to their academic record at that institution.
