College of Coastal Georgia regularly welcomes students who are visiting from other institutions for up to three semesters with the intention of returning to their home institution. Because visiting students are not seeking a degree with College of Coastal Georgia, the admission process for transient students is fairly simple.
2. Permission from Home Institution
Submit a Letter of Good Standing or Transient Permission Form from your home institution for each semester of attendance at CCGA; normally you would request this from your home institution's Registrar's office. If you are planning to use financial aid, you will need to work with the Financial Aid office at your home institution to obtain a consortium agreement for your studies at CCGA.
3. Immunization records
Provide a record of immunizations to include verification of immunity against Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Tetanus-Diphtheria, and Varicella (Chicken Pox). Students under the age of 19 must also provide proof of the Hepatitis B series.
4. Verification of Lawful Presence
In order to qualify for in-state tuition or a waiver of out-of-state tuition, students must provide proof of their lawful presence in the United States. Lawful presence can be proved with a Georgia driver's license (not limited term) issued since 2008, a current U.S. passport, or an official certified copy of their U.S. birth certificate. See more information on the University System's policy on verification of lawful presence.
