Troy University student wishing to enroll as a transient student at another institution

A student receiving prior Troy University transient authorization does not need to be readmitted if the absence does not go beyond the term authorized. Troy University transient authorization assumes the student remains in good standing and has not officially withdrawn from the University for the term that authorization was granted. The student must provide an official transcript from the institution attended. A student returning beyond the approved transient authorization must reapply under the readmission rules.


  1. Obtain a transient authorization form/letter approved by the registrar from the institution you are currently attending, indicating the courses you will be taking at Troy University.

  2. Complete the Troy University application for admission, indicating "transient" as your intended academic major and as your enrollment status.
