Transient Student

Students working toward a degree at other colleges or universities may enroll at SCF to take courses upon presentation of a transient form from the student's current (home) institution and an SCF application for admissions. Transient students are encouraged to receive advance approval from their home institution before registering for classes at SCF. Students must complete the SCF transcript request form and pay the transcript fee so that the home institution will be informed that the credit was earned.

If you are attending a Florida public college or university, please complete the transient application through Florida Virtual Campus (FLVC). If you choose to apply through FLVC, it is not necessary to submit an SCF admissions application.
