How to Become a Transient Student

Owens welcomes visiting students all year round. Simply take a class or two online, and then transfer the credits to your home university. In the process, save money on your bachelor’s degree.

Some of the most popular online classes each semester are Calculus I, Business Statistics, Legal Environment of Business, Introductory Statistics, Microeconomics and Anatomy & Physiology I and II.  Which class do you need for your degree?

This form allows you to upload your unofficial transcripts and speeds up the registration process.

After completing the Request Form, monitor your Owens Student Email for notification regarding your registration approval.

Number 4 Activate your Ozone Account

You will use Ozone to register for classes, pay your bill, access your Owens Student Email, and receive communication from staff about registration.

Number 5 Register for Classes

Number 6 Consortium Agreement

Contact your home institution’s financial aid office to ask if you qualify for a consortium agreement. The consortium agreement allows financial aid to be based on your combined enrollment at both institutions. Your financial aid will continue to be managed and disbursed to you by your homeschool. It is important to know that you are responsible for paying your balance to Owens Community College. However, your enrollment in classes at Owens Community College will be held if a consortium agreement is approved and on file with Owens.
