Transient Student - Class Registration

Transient students are typically students taking classes for one semester on our campus and their home campus is a different institution of higher learning (they have earned college credits). When registration ready (all enrollment steps complete), transient students can register through an advisor remotely. No orientation is needed. These students will not be financial aid eligible.
