Summer & Transient Student Admissions

You are a "transient student" if you are pursuing a degree at another college or university but you choose to take some approved classes at Piedmont Tech. Transient students are not seeking degrees at Piedmont Tech and cannot receive financial aid.

See your advisor at your home institution to receive a Transient Approval Form. You and your advisor must ensure that you have met prerequisites for the Piedmont Tech courses for which you will register.
