Transient Student Admission Requirements and Application Procedures

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 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

We must have your completed application for admission and all supporting documents prior to the deadline. Note that it is very likely we will meet capacity BEFORE the deadline and will immediately stop accepting students. Completing your application earlier is better. Applications and documents received after the posted deadline may still be considered if capacity has not yet been met.

  • Spring semester (begins in January): November 1 (All deadlines are at close of business) 
  • Summer semester: April 1 (All deadlines are at close of business) 
  • Fall Semester
    • Priority Deadline: May 1 (All deadlines are at close of business) 
    • If capacity has not been met deadline: July 1 (All deadlines are at close of business) 

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.
Two weeks after you complete steps 1-3, check your application status to ensure we have received all required documents to evaluate your application.
