Visiting student, possible as a transfer?

Postby Tala29 » Sat Aug 06, 2016 5:02 pm

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone knows whether the school one transfers to allows you to apply somewhere else as a visiting student in your third year? I would think maybe not since you then only stayed 1 year at that school.

Also, is the application for visiting student as competitive as transfer (I assumed not because you still get a degree from your original transfer school).

Thanks!

Most schools require that you be in residence for 2 years.

That would be a transient student, not a transfer. Your degree would still be from your original school.
