FIU students may attend other State University System institutions as a transient student. Please see your academic adviser for approval and information. It is recommended that you contact the school you plan to attend to find out their registration requirements and deadlines.

Transient forms can be completed electronically. These forms will automatically be routed to your college for adviser approval, the Registrar for certification, and to the school you indicate you will attend. You will be apprised of the status of this application by e-mail.

Upon completing the course, university regulations require that an official transcript be sent to us so that the course can be applied to your official Florida International University transcript. Please visit the Registrar’s Office where you are attending (Transient Institution) and submit a request to send your transcript to FIU.
