Transient Information

The transient form process provides university approval to the student that the course they want to take from a community or state college is considered equivalent to a UCF course. The Undergraduate Student Services office facilitates the verification process of transient forms for all coursework required for the major (excluding GEP).

Transient requests can take several days to process as it has requires multilevel approval. Students should note that there is additional UCF Student Financial Assistance paperwork required when taking course work from a community or state college. Finally, students are responsible for any additional deadlines, applications or fee payment to the community or state college.
