Transient Students

A transient student (aka "guest student") is a student who is enrolled at one University, but taking classes at another that will count toward their degree at their home University. Generally, this happens when students don't live near their home University 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 University that they need to graduate.

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