Consortium forms are used in limited cases when a student only plans on taking classes at another school for one term, is not dual enrolled, and wants all credits to count towards their financial aid eligibility. If a student plan on taking classes continually at another school, and Oregon Tech has a Dual Enrollment agreement with that school, it is recommended to become a dual admitted student.
Under the following circumstances, the Financial Aid Office at Oregon Tech may be able to count classes a student is taking at another institution toward the student's overall course load when determining the student's eligibility for financial aid if:
- Student has turned in the completed form and any additional needed documents by the end of the second week of the term.
- Student is fully admitted to a degree-granting program at Oregon Tech and are otherwise eligible for financial aid.
- Student is taking at least 6 credits at Oregon Tech.
- The class at the other institution is 100 level or higher.
- The class is mandatory the student's degree completion.
- The class will not be offered by Oregon Tech during the term which aid is awarded.
The student must complete a Consortium Agreement and attach a copy of the class registration from the other institution.
Additionally, it is student's responsibility to provide the Financial Aid Office at Oregon Tech with a copy of the consortium class grade report at the end of the term so we may evaluate the student's satisfactory academic progress. All aid for future terms will be on hold if we do not receive the grades within 30 days of the term ending.
