Definition: A degree seeking student who is currently pursuing a degree at another institution and planning to enroll at UTC to take classes toward their degree.
Students are not eligible to receive financial aid at more than one institution for any one term. Therefore, you must apply for financial aid at the institution where you are degree-seeking, referred to as your home institution. It is the student's responsibility to request that aid is canceled at the other institution.
Transient students coming into UTC are not eligible to receive financial aid at UTC. If you wish to receive financial aid at your Home institution based on your enrollment at UTC, you must contact your Home school and ask about a Consortium Agreement. Please be aware that not all schools will recognize a consortium agreement, and it is the student’s responsibility to determine if this is the case.
For Outgoing Students:
UTC students may choose to take classes at another institution and still receive their financial aid from UTC. In order to be eligible to receive financial aid under a consortium agreement, the student must be currently admitted and a degree seeking student, eligible for aid at the Home institution (UTC), and be enrolled as a transient student at the host institution. Please be aware that not all schools will recognize a consortium agreement, and it is the student’s responsibility to determine if this is the case. If you wish to receive financial aid at UTC (Home institution) based on the hours enrolled at the Host institution, you must complete a 14-15 Concurrent Enrollment Form.
All information must be provided in order for your courses to be approved. Please list course numbers, not course registration numbers. Submit the completed form on-line. Once the form has been completed by the host institution, it will be returned to the UTC Financial Aid Office for processing.
Please note, to be reviewed for financial aid eligibility under a consortium agreement, you must begin this process 3-4 weeks prior to the beginning of the term. Completed documents must be received no later than the last day of term. The student is responsible for payment of fees at the host school. Aid processed at UTC under a consortium agreement will be available as a refund to the student within two weeks after the first day of your class. Funds are not sent to the host school. Students must pick up refund in the UTC Bursar's Office or set up direct deposit through the MyMocsNet account.
