Transient Students

A transient student (aka "guest student") is a student who is enrolled at one college, but taking classes at another that will count toward their degree at their home institution. Generally, this happens when students don't live near their home college over the summer, but want to take a class or two to speed up the obtainment of their degree, or if for some reason they can't take a class at their home institution that they need to graduate.

If you are a transient student, follow these steps to become a fully-admitted TCC student.
