You are a guest student if you are currently enrolled at another college or university and plan to take FGC courses that can be transferred back to your home institution. Transient students attend on a term-by-term basis and are not pursuing a degree at FGC. We’re glad you’ve decided to be our guest!

Please follow the steps below for your transient enrollment. Remember that we are here to help you through this process and your success is our success.

Students Attending Florida Public Colleges and Universities

Apply for Admission - Free!

Apply online at www.floridashines.org.

In the Get Started section, select “Take a course at another school” and then choose “Apply or Check Application Status Now.”

This form will need to be completed every term that you take a course at FGC as a transient student, so that your institution can approve courses that will apply to your degree. The form is sent to your home institution for approval first and then will be routed to FGC.
