Transient Policy

Armstrong students may request to take course work at another college or university for a single term by completing a form. This form requires approval from a student's department/major advisor prior to submission to the Registrar's Office. Students requesting transient status must have been enrolled at Armstrong for the semester immediately prior to the transient term (excluding summer). Grades and quality points earned for these courses will have an effect on the student's overall grade point average at Armstrong  and are considered in calculating graduation with honors. It is the student's responsibility to contact the other institution to determine admission requirements and registration procedures.

An official transcript from the transient institution at the end of the specified term must be on file at Armstrong in order to register for a subsequent term at Armstrong. If the student does not attend the transient institution, a written enrollment verification indicating non-attendance at that institution is required.

If the student is applying for financial aid at Armstrong for the transient term, a copy of the completed form must also be submitted to the Armstrong Office of Financial Aid. An additional consortium agreement may be required. Please contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.

Graduating seniors must obtain written permission from their major department head, subject to approval by the Registrar's Office, to be a transient student during their final term before graduation. This includes being transient to complete course work through an independent study program elsewhere or participation in any Armstrong program (GTREP, ASEP, ASC, etc.). Upon receipt of such permission, students are responsible for assuring that the Armstrong Registrar's Office has received official grades from the transient institution prior to awarding of the degree. This includes posting degree completion on official Armstrong transcripts.
