Yes! Students from other institutions who wish to enroll in our online course during the summer only are considered transient students. Students from other institutions may not enroll during fall or spring semester without following transfer procedures.

Accepted transient students who apply early will be mailed information on registration and advance payment. Late applicants must sign up for courses and pay during the late enrollment period.

The Transient Application is available online. The Transient Student Application fee is $25.00 and online instructions for payment are provided in the application.

In order to verify lawful presence in the United States, a transient student may provide a notarized copy of the original document to support his/her status.  

More Details about the Course

Custom text deliberately written in conversational English...so no typical stuffy textbook written in "professorspeak."

You will have to work hard, but that doesn't mean it has to be boring or painful!

Professor LeBlanc provides a "survival guide" telling you step by step how to set up your study materials to maximize the likelihood that you will succeed.

It's a 15 week course compressed down to 3, so to lighten the load, there is no required homework, and there are opportunities for extra credit.

Work at your own pace and even finish the course early Exempt the final exam if you meet the requirements AAH 210 usually transfers to your home institution to fulfill a general education requirement.

Why not take a course that is fun, designed to help students succeed, and flexible enough to be taken from any place in the world!

Meet Professor Janet LeBlanc

Distance Learning is often impersonal, but it doesn't have to be that way at all. I'd like to let my students know who I am, and I hope I get to know you in return. I am Janet LeBlanc, and I have been teaching at Clemson since 1974. I have two Art History degrees from Michigan State University and a third degree in Maritime Archaeology from University of Saint Andrews. I am originally from Canada, although my family came to America when I was a child. I am married to an architect, and we have 5 children. I am a bit of a workaholic, but when I can I love to get away to the beach. I enjoy sailing and scuba diving, although I don't have much time for either these days. I especially love foreign travel, and our whole family are cruise aficionados. I prefer reading non-fiction to fiction, mostly history and theology. Musically I lean mostly to jazz, especially jazz-fusion, which is my favorite. I also like most electronic new-age music, any and all Latin music, classic rock and roll some pop music and some classical. Hope you enjoy this course!
