Occasionally, a student wants to enroll simultaneously at OSU and another institution and will want to combine the hours for financial aid purposes. Sometimes this is possible through the creation of 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.
If you are taking coursework at another institution approved by your academic advisor to count toward your graduation with an OSU degree then you need to contact our office to see if you need to meet with a counselor, by appointment, regarding a consortium.
NOTE: Not all students require a consortium and not all institutions are willing to participate in the consortium process.
