Transient students are degree-seeking at another institution but plan to study at FKCC for one or more courses. These
students must complete an FKCC Application for Admission and pay the application fee. They enroll at FKCC as non-degree
seeking. If the student’s home school is a Florida state college or university, the student must go to
enter all transient data requested. This web site was developed for Florida state institutions to streamline the transient
data and approval process. If the student is enrolled at a private or out-of-state institution, the student must work with
the home school to obtain written permission to attend FKCC as a transient student, and then ensure that the paperwork
is delivered to Enrollment Services at FKCC for final processing. If the student has financial aid or VA benefits, the student
must work with the Financial Aid Office or with the Veteran’s Specialist in Enrollment Services to ensure a continuation of

completion of the 12 credit hours, the student will be considered a non-degree seeking student. If the student fails to
obtain the required 2.0 GPA in his/her first 12 hours, the student may continue as a non-degree seeking student subject to
the Academic Probation and Suspension Policy of the College.
International Student Admissions

Section 101(a)(1)(15)(f ) (i) to enroll non-immigrant alien students.
Audit students are those students registered for a college course who are not seeking college credit. Fees are the same for
both credit and audit students. Audit students should be regular and punctual in attendance and should make regular class
preparation. No tests or examinations are required for these students. A grade of “X”, which carries no credit, will be entered
on the college record. Audit students may not change to credit status once the last day to change courses for the term has
passed (see the academic calendar for important dates). Students may not change to audit status beyond the last day to
withdraw from class.
