Planning to Take Non-UF Coursework this Summer?
If you plan to take coursework transient (meaning at an institution other than UF) Summer 2017, be sure to review the process below. Students wishing to enroll in transient coursework MUST follow the below steps:

  • Complete the HHP Transient Request Form and submit to your academic advisor for review. Forms will be reviewed and an email decision to approve or deny your transient request will be sent within 2 business days. Below are items to consider before submitting the HHP transient request:
    • Upper division coursework taken as a transient student is discouraged.
    • Students must NOT break UF residence (last 30 hours of coursework must be taken at UF).
    • If denied, students may not register for the requested course(s) at a transient institution.  Students are not permitted to complete transient coursework without college approval.

After completion of approved transient work, the student is responsible for submitting a transcript to UF. If you have any questions, please see your academic advisor.

Academic Advising Hours/Availability
