Graduate Catalog 2012-2013

Transient Student Procedure

Students wishing to attend another college/university and take courses to count toward their degree at Georgia College must be in good standing, petition the degree program coordinator and obtain the approval of their faculty advisor prior to enrolling at the other institution. The petition must specify the courses to be taken at the other college/university and the student must have the other college/university send a transcript of the courses taken to the Graduate Admissions Office at Georgia College to receive credit for the work at Georgia College. A maximum of nine credit hours may be transferred towards a degree program and only if approved by the graduate coordinator. Ordinarily, students are permitted to be transient students away from the University for only one semester. In order to be eligible for transient status a student must have been enrolled within the last five years. Transient courses for College of Business students must be taken from an AACSB-accredited institution.
