Students currently enrolled in college degree programs at other institutions must meet the following requirements to take courses at Daytona State College as a transient student and have their course credits transfer back to their primary institution:
- The student attending a Florida public college or university should complete the Transient Student Admissions Application available online at www.flvc.org.
- The student attending a private college or out-of-state public college or university must complete the admissions application available at the Daytona State College home page.
- Students must submit a letter or Transient Student (or Transfer Credit) Form from their institution, academic dean or department chairperson to the Registration Office authorizing them to enroll at Daytona State College as a Transient Student. If you are meeting with an advisor to assist you with course selection, make sure to share this form with them for verification of eligibility to enroll in the Daytona State College courses that you plan to take. Students assume responsibility for selecting the appropriate courses that meet their educational objectives. They also are responsible for ensuring that their institution will accept each course taken at Daytona State College toward their program of study. By signing the Transient Student (or Transfer Credit) Form, your primary college is verifying that you meet the prerequisites for the courses being approved.
- Once approved by your home college, a course authorization will be put into your student record for each course indicated on your transient form. Please note that your approved form does not secure a seat in your course(s), and you must still register for the course.
- Please remember that, as a transient student, you will not be able to perform any registration functions (register, drop or withdraw) online through the FalconNet. You may go to any Daytona State College Enrollment Office/Falcon Center and the staff will assist you in registering, or with other transactions.
- If you cannot visit a Daytona State College campus, you can reply to the approval email with your specific information for each approved class. Please list your name, the course prefix/number for each class along with the section number, and your Daytona State College ID# and the Registration Office will register you.
- Financial Aid Consortium Form must also be completed between the Daytona State Financial Aid Office and that of the home college for students who are receiving for financial aid. Effective in 2012-2013, Florida's public colleges and universities may have an overall consortium agreement administered by www.FLVC.org, so individual agreements may not be necessary.
- Transients students are required to pay the bill when due.
- Transient students are responsible for requesting an official transcript to be sent to their home institution after completing course(s).
As a transient student, you will be subject to the rules, policies and procedures of Daytona State College regarding all academic and registration issues. Under no circumstances will you be able to receive a grade for the course you are taking prior to the dates indicated in the Academic Calendar. Please consider enrolling in an A subsession course, if you will need a grade to be submitted to your home institution before the normal end of the B subsession or full-term course.
