Transient Enrollment/Cross Enrollment
A transient student form is used when a student wishes to take courses at an institution
outside of the University of South Florida System. Students wishing to take courses
at public institutions in Florida must complete the Transient Form online (see procedures
section below). This form can be used to request approval for courses taken as cross
enrollment (enrollment at USF and the other institution) or transient enrollment (courses
taken only at another institution). Once the form is completed, it will be automatically
sent within three business days to your advisor/college office and to the Office of
the Registrar. The form is typically reviewed within 24-48 hours.
3. Your College will authorize or not authorize your enrollment request. This decision
is then electronically submitted to the
Registrar's Office (USF Regional Records Office) for certification.
Students interested in taking courses at a private or out-of-state institution must
complete the Registrar's Office Transient Student Form following the instructions on the form.
Please keep in mind that transient or cross enrollment in courses that are available
in the USF system during Fall and Spring semesters will only be approved in very extenuating
circumstances. However, transient enrollment in the Summer will be approved if the
student resides and the courses are offered at institutions outside of Pinellas, Pasco
and Hillsborough counties.
1. Complete the Transient Student Admission Application form.
2. Your academic advisor/college office will be notified of the transient enrollment
If your enrollment request is approved, the Records Office of The Registrar will certify your academic status and forward the transient request electronically to the receiving institution. Check with the receiving institution to determine if additional paperwork is required.
If the transient enrollment form is not approved by USF, no financial aid will be disbursed. Depending on procedures at the other institutions, a student may or may not be able to enroll in courses utilizing his/her own resources.
