Student Responsibilities

A student is responsible for:

  • Determining which institution is their host institution and which will be their home institution. As the home institution, SFSC will determine eligibility and authorize financial aid to the student.
  • Payment for tuition and fees at the host institution by the deadline of the host institution.
  • Repayment of financial aid to one institution if receiving financial aid at two institutions at the same time.
  • Repayment of financial aid if the student withdraws from a transient course as transient students are subject to the same registration (add/drop/withdrawal) and academic standing policies.

When the transient process is completed, SFSC will authorize financial aid to the eligible student’s account after the drop/add period. However, If the student has not completed the transient process by the drop/add period of the transient course, financial aid will not be authorized on the account until it is completed.
