Enrolling at Another Institution As A Transient Student
A regularly-enrolled undergraduate student wishing to attend another institution for one term, with the intention of returning to Valdosta State University, will be considered a "transient" student at the other school. The following procedure must be followed to obtain "transient" status:
Credit will not be accepted and posted to the Valdosta State University record until an official transcript has been received from the other institution, and all transfer credit requirements have been met as specified in the current VSU Bulletin. Credit accepted in transfer will not be calculated into the student's Valdosta State University grade point average. Credit is not acceptable in transfer for students who are on academic suspension at Valdosta State University without their VSU Dean's prior approval. Valdosta State University accepts a maximum of 60 transfer semesters hours from a junior college and a maximum of 90 total semester hours in transfer. In addition, a grade of "C" (average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale) is required for course credit to be accepted in transfer. Students who have not attended Valdosta State University for over one year must apply for readmission and must satisfy degree requirements as specified in the VSU Bulletin current at the time of application.
