Students Transient To (Visiting) UGA

Students enrolled in degree programs at another college or university (the Home School) who are admitted to UGA as a transient or visiting student are not eligible for the Federal Student Aid (FSA) or the HOPE and Zell Miller Scholarships administered by the UGA Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA).

Students awarded FSA by their Home school should contact their Home School’s financial aid office for guidance on how the student may possibly qualify for any FSA awarded by their Home School during their UGA enrollment.

Students awarded the HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarship by their Home School should contact their Home School’s financial aid office to request certification of the student’s HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarship eligibility to the Georgia Student Finance Commission’s (GSFC) SURFER Website so UGA OSFA can then access that information and award the HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarship to the student based on his/her UGA enrollment and school's certification information.
