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.

You may want to explore this option because your "home" college or university does not offer a course you need, does not offer a course at a convenient time, or your are in the Daytona Beach area for an extended period of time.
