1. What is a visiting student?

A visiting student is a student that is not seeking a degree from GTCC and/or not receiving financial aid but would like to take one or more curriculum courses.

a. If you have credit from another institution that meets the pre-requisite requirements for the course you want to take at GTCC, yes you will need to provide a transcript in order to register for the course. If you use an unofficial transcript you will have to be manually registered but if you send an official transcript to the college in a reasonable amount of time to be evaluated you will be able to register via WebAdvisor.

b. You will only need to take the placement test if you don't have any previous college credit (must have C or higher) that satisfies the pre-requisite requirement.

    • Please don't make demands on their time when you are requesting a meeting. They are here to help but again have a rigorous schedule as you all do and may not be able to assist when you express you have to have your meeting but they will try their best to accommodate both your schedule and theirs. (ex. You have to see me now because this is the only time I am available, this type of demand will be denied).
    • Make your appointments prior to your registration appointment time (Your assigned person cannot change your registration date and time).
    • Walk-Ins are at the discretion of the faculty coach.
    • If you are assigned to someone in the Student Success Center you can walk-in but depending on how many people are there to see who you are trying to see, there could be a delay.
  • Always allow one to two business days for a reply from anyone you contact on campus.
  • Your assigned person will provide you with their expectations and guidelines for their meetings etc.

  • The Student Success Center (formerly Advising Center) will only assist students on their caseload when considering advising assistance, if you are not on their caseload you will have to see your assigned person. We will still handle other services we provide (program change, overrides, max time frame, career services, academic probation withdrawal signature (if you can't get instructor signature), etc. Please go to our website for a list of services.
