Transient Student Enrollment

A transient student is someone who’s currently enrolled at another college or university who will register for courses at Eastern Florida State College on a temporary, term-by-term basis, and who will not pursue a degree at EFSC. You’re interested in taking a class or classes to earn credits that you can transfer or to increase your knowledge. The steps below outline your application and course registration process.

Steps to Enrollment

Step 1:  Apply for Admission

Students from Florida state public colleges and universities need to:
Students from Florida private and out-of-state schools should follow the steps below:
  • Apply using EFSC's Online Application System
  • Pay the one-time, non-refundable $30 application fee online by credit card or in person by cash or check. If paying in person you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to pay the fee by cash or check at a Campus Cashiers office.
  • Be sure to complete the Florida Residency Declaration for Tuition purposes in combination with the Eastern Florida Application for Admission and submit with your residency documents to the campus you select as your primary campus. Campus admission office addresses are on the Residency Information sheet and on our main admissions contact page.
  • Submit a transient letter or letter of good standing from your home institution.

Please note that EFSC was closed for Winter Break from December 13 - January 5. Applications received during that time and since January 6 are now being processed in the order they were received and processing time can take up to seven business days. Check your email frequently for your acceptance letter. If you do not have all admission requirements met prior to the full term start on January 13, EFSC does offer a 12-week term which starts on February 10.

Step 2:  Consider completing student orientation.

While not mandated for transient students, orientation through our easy-to-use online system is recommended for all students. It’s an introduction to life at Eastern Florida.

Step 3:  Enroll for courses, pay your fees, get your Student ID card, parking decal & books.
