Transient Student Admission Requirements and Application Procedures

Deadline Extension

The new freshman application for the Dahlonega campus has closed. New freshman commuter applicants who have already applied to the Dahlonega campus may still submit supporting documents at this time. The fall semester deadline for all other campuses and all other student types has been extended until capacity is met.

These requirements and instructions apply if you are enrolled at another accredited college or university, and you wish to temporarily enroll at UNG for a semester with the intent to return to your previous institution. You may not enroll in learning support courses as a transient student.


  • You must be in good academic standing and eligible to re-enroll with your home institution.
  • Your home institution must be regionally accredited.

Selecting a Campus Location

Not all courses are offered on all campuses.  You must ensure that the course/s you intend to take are offered on your intended campus. To do this, check the online class schedule. Please note that we cannot guarantee the availability of courses or a class schedule at particular times or locations.

Application Deadlines


(All deadlines are at close of business. All supporting documents are due within 2 weeks of the application deadline.)

Transient Student Registration Information

All transient students must be admitted to the university before registering for any courses. Accepted transient students are unable to register for courses until the beginning of Add/Drop week of each semester. Transient registration information is available from the Registrar's Office.

Applying to UNG

Application Process
Apply for admission online using the GAFutures.  Both Georgia and out-of-state residents create an account with GAfutures to apply.  If you cannot apply online, download a paper application. You will pay a non-refundable application fee whether you apply online or using paper.
Submit an official letter of Transient Permission from your home institution registrar or dean. Ensure the statement includes your eligibility to return to your home institution.
Submit your verification of lawful presence documentation if you wish to pay in-state tuition. This is not required if you pay out-of-state tuition. Out-of-state tuition is much higher than in-state tuition. Admission to UNG is not contingent upon proof of lawful presence. If you no longer wish to be considered for tuition at the in-state rate, please contact us so that we can remove the requirement from your record.
Two weeks after you complete steps 1-3, check your application status to ensure we have received all required documents to evaluate your application.
