Transient Students

Students who submit a Transient Agreement Letter from their home institution are granted Transient admission status. The Transient Agreement Letter should verify that the student is in good standing and should list the courses the student is eligible to take. A current Transient Agreement Letter is required for each semester of enrollment. A transient student is one who has been or is regularly enrolled at another institution, who expects to return to that institution, but who desires to enroll temporarily at Wiregrass Georgia Technical College. Credit earned at Wiregrass Georgia Technical College is not automatically forwarded to the second institution. An official transcript must be requested through the Registrar's Office. Transient students desiring to continue enrollment as transfer students must reapply for admission and satisfactorily complete all transfer requirements. The applicant for transient status must:

  • Submit a completed application to the Admissions Office. .
  • Pay $25 non-refundable application fee (check, money order or credit card). This is a one-time fee.
  • Provide the Admissions Office with a transient letter from the proper official of the home institution giving the student permission to enroll at Wiregrass Georgia Technical College. The transient letter must state which course(s) the student will be taking at WGTC.
  • International Students only: Present a letter from the parent institution certifying that the parent institution will retain responsibility for the issuance of the I-20 form during the transient semester(s) for International, F-1, and M-1 Visa students.
