Definition: An agreement for transient students between UTC and other eligible participating institution allowing a student to to take courses at a school other than the home school and have those courses count toward the degree or certificate at the home school. A student can only receive financial aid for courses that are applicable to the student's certificate or degree program. The student must be admitted to the host school as a transient student.
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 the hours enrolled 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:
Students may choose to take classes at another institution and still receive their aid from UTC. In order to be eligible to receive aid under a consortium agreement, the student must be currently admitted and a degree seeking student and 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 Concurrent Enrollment Form. Please use our Forms Page to select the academic year in question. Then, you will find the UTC Concurrent Enrollment Form at the bottom of the corresponding page.
Complete Section A of the 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 at the host school. Aid processed at UTC under a consortium agreement will be available within two weeks after the first day of your class. Funds are not sent to the host school. Students must pick up check in the UTC Bursar's Office or set up direct deposit through the MyMocsNet account.
