Based on the above procedures, it is important to plan enough time for all these steps. Ideally, the form to get us well before the first day of payment for the term. Make sure you plan accordingly! Call the host school in advance and ask them what procedures they have for managing consortium agreements when they are host school. Note that your help may be delayed as a unionized student. At the end of the consortium semester, the senior classes must be sent to the WSU Office of Student Financial Services. Don`t forget to ask the host school for transcripts. Future consortium agreements will no longer be concluded. If you are going to take courses at another domestic school while you are still a student at the University of Iowa, you may be able to enter into a consortium to obtain financial assistance for credit hours at the University of Iowa and the other school (host school). The objective of a consortium agreement is to ensure the appropriate amount of aid. Consortium agreements are only processed if they are necessary to help you obtain your federal financial assistance. If the student is not enrolled full-time in the WSU and is eligible for scholarships, the credits added by the consortium agreement may increase the student`s eligibility.
Federal regulations do not allow students to obtain federal grants from two schools at the same time. By entering into a consortium agreement, a student may, during the same semester, go to the University of Arizona (UA) and another accredited school (called a “visiting institution”) and receive federal financial assistance for all combined units. This process benefits most Federal Pell Grant recipients, who are enrolled in less than 12 units at AU. Continued regulation of IP-related issues is not mandatory, but is highly recommended for consortium partners. The following IP issues can be considered in the consortium agreement: A consortium agreement is a written and formal agreement between two institutions that can participate in federal Title IV programs. The consortium agreements allow students enrolled in more than one school during a given semester to obtain the maximum amount of federal assistance for which they can qualify for enrolment in both schools. A student can only receive financial assistance during a semester of a school. When a student is enrolled in more than one school, a consortium agreement between the FHSU (home institution) and another participating school (the host institution) allows a student to count classes from both schools for one semester and obtain the maximum amount of financial assistance for which the student is eligible. If one of the two schools decides not to enter into a consortium agreement, a student`s financial assistance will be based exclusively on enrollment in one of the schools. The FHSU`s financial assistance office and any other institution reserve the right to refuse requests for a consortium agreement. Talk to your advisor to make sure that the courses you want to take at the “host” institution will be transferred to your studies. Your advisor must also sign the consortium contract form to verify that the courses are applicable.
Sanitation and technical training courses are not provided and very few exceptions are allowed. You cannot use classes that you control for the consortium agreement.
