Transient Student Definition

A Transient Student is a degree-seeking student who is currently pursuing a degree at another institution and planning to take classes at a separate institution that will go toward their degree. Transient students are not international students, but those enrolled in Bethel temporarily. This mimics the process of a student participating in global studies for a single term. Students are not eligible to receive financial aid at more than one institution for anyone's enrollment term. 

Transient Student Application Process

To enroll as a transient student, one must complete the online applications below and follow the global studies payment instructions.
