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 taking a course or courses at Daytona State College at the same time to fulfill the other college's requirements.

Many university students take a class or two at DSC to get ahead while at home for the summer. Other reasons you might want to consider becoming a transient student are that your "main" college or university does not offer a course you need, does not offer a course at a convenient time, or you are in the Daytona Beach area for an extended period of time.

When do classes start?
