Transient Students

A transient is an undergraduate student in good standing at another institution who enrolls for one semester at Georgia Southern University in order to complete work to be transferred back to the home institution.

Admission Requirements

  1. Apply for admission online and submit a $30 non-refundable application fee
  2. Submit a Letter of Good Standing or Transient Permission Form from the Registrar’s or Dean’s Office of your home institution.
    • The letter must indicate that you are in good academic standing, eligible to return to that institution, and have the home institution’s permission to attend Georgia Southern as a transient student for the term in which the student is applying.

If you have questions, contact the Transfer Admissions Team at transfers@georgiasouthern.edu or 912-478-5391.


The Georgia Southern Office of Undergraduate Admissions will only maintain a record of non-enrolling student test scores and transcripts for five years. Admission applications and fees are only kept for two years.
