A transient student is one who enrolls in two colleges simultaneously. A transient student may be admitted and enrolled at another college or university, but concurrently taking a course or courses at Daytona State College to fulfill the other college's requirements. Many students use this option because their "home" college or university does not offer the course, does not offer the course at a time convenient for them, or they are in the Daytona Beach area for an extended period of time. If you are currently enrolled in a college degree program at another regionally accredited institution and wish to enroll at Daytona State simultaneously, simply follow the steps below.
Applications are accepted year-round.
1. Get Admitted!
- If your home institution is a Florida public college/university, apply at Florida Virtual Campus.
- If your home institution is a private college/university or is located outside of Florida, complete an Application for Admission. You can apply online or by downloading our application and submitting it by mail, fax, email, or in person at any campus. NOTE: Please choose major code 0003 to designate that you are a transient student. All documents to establish Florida residency for tuition purposes must be submitted to the Admissions Office prior to the first day of classes for the semester for which residency is sought.
2. Get Financial Aid!
If you are applying for financial aid at your home institution, ask the financial aid office at your institution about a consortium agreement. Then, contact the Office of Financial Aid Services at Daytona State College for more information. NOTE: No money will transfer from your home institution to Daytona State College. You will be responsible for covering your tuition and fees at Daytona State.
3. Get Registered!
You can register into classes online through your My.DaytonaState.edu account or on-campus with the Falcon Center/Registration Office at one of our convenient campus locations. A copy of your approved Transient Form/Letter from your home institution will be required upon registration, unless already received by Daytona State. If you're having trouble registering into a class online, please visit the nearest campus location or email the Registration Office and an enrollment specialist will assist you.
4. Get a Receipt!
Pay for your classes either online via your MyDaytonaState or in person/over the phone with the Office of Student Accounts at any campus. The Office of Student Accounts offers a number of payment options to assist you to make payments while your financial aid is being processed at your home institution or if you will not be using financial aid.
REMEMBER – you are not officially registered until you have paid in full.
5. Get an ID Card, Parking Decal and Books!
