|Students attending a University occasionally require lower level courses that are not offered at the University. In this case, a student for financial aid purposes may enroll simultaneously at Central Texas College and the University from which you plan to graduate and receive your degree. In order to utilize financial aid in this process of simultaneous enrollment, a student must complete a Consortium Agreement. A Consortium Agreement is a contract between two colleges/universities that recognizes your registration at each location for financial aid purposes. It also certifies only one of the two institutions can administer Title IV and State financial aid.
In all cases with Consortium Agreements, Central Texas College will always be considered the "HOST" school and the other college/university will be the "HOME" school. Students will NOT BE ENTITLED to any financial aid through Central Texas College because their financial aid must be processed by their "Home" school. Therefore, students will be responsible for any tuition and fees accrued at Central Texas College. For students interested in completing a Consortium Agreement with Central Texas College, please follow the steps that your "Home" school requires for consortium agreements.
Consortium Agreements are subject to approval by both the home and host institution's authorized financial aid staff.
