Transient students must be in good standing at their home institution. Transient students may not attend consecutive semesters at Georgia College.

Transient Admissions Requirements

Applications are reviewed once a file becomes complete which means all required documentation has been received by the Georgia College Admissions Office. Admission files should be complete by the indicated priority deadlines.

The Undergraduate application is used to apply as a transient student. Please submit ONLY ONE application and use ONLY that application all the way through to submission. Submitting more than one application will most certainly delay your admission decision. 

GAFutures Application  |  Paper Application

Note: Two personal essays are not required.

The $35 (non-refundable) online application fee is payable at the time of application for transient applicants. The paper application fee is $40. If you submitted your application without paying the fee, you may do so by clicking here.

Transient application processing fee is NOT required of:

  • Applicants aged 62 and above
  • Applicants who applied and/or enrolled and paid the application fee within the past six years

If you are exempt from paying the application fee, please select “Fee Waiver” option on your application to secure this waiver.

A transient letter must indicate good standing and recommend admission to GC. Please make sure your Registrar’s Office does NOT send an Enrollment Verification letter. A letter of verification only provides proof of current enrollment, not academic standing and official recommendation of admission to GC.

Official transient letters must be sent directly from your current institution’s Registrar’s Office one of the following ways:

  • Mail
  • Fax: 478-445-3653 (Letter must be faxed directly from the Registrar's Office of student's current institution)
  • Email (Letter must be emailed directly from the Registrar's Office of student's current institution)
  • eScrip/Parchment

Note: If you are planning to enroll for a course at Georgia College that requires a pre-requisite, please make sure your transient letter indicates that you have completed and passed the pre-requisite course at your current institution.

Lawful Presence Verification is required of all students before they can begin class.
