Transient Student Admission
Transient applicants are individuals who are enrolled and pursuing a degree at another college or university and who wish to take a very limited number of courses at Oglethorpe.
Transient students may enroll for a maximum of 16 semester hours. Transient students are not eligible for financial assistance and tuition is due before the first day of class. See tuition rates.
Candidates for transient admission must be in academic good standing at their current college or university. It is the candidate’s responsibility to ensure that the current institution will accept coursework completed at Oglethorpe. Transient candidates must meet any prerequisites for the courses in which they seek to enroll.
A completed application for transient admission includes the following:
- Submission of the below transient application (below);
- Payment of the non-refundable $50;
- Our receipt of an official transcript from your current institution.
For all start terms, transient applications are considered on a rolling admission basis. Applications are reviewed in the order in which they are completed, provided that sufficient time remains for processing and enrollment.
If approved, registration is completed by your counselor after submitting your Course Preference Form, available on your student Petrel Portal after admission. There is no self-service online registration for transient students.
