A student is allowed to receive financial aid funding for credits taken at another institution (including study abroad) provided there is a consortium agreement between the two institutions and that courses taken at the host institution will apply toward the student's declared program at the home institution.
Host institution - another school where you are taking courses to meet program requirements at your home institution.
Home institution - the school where you plan to complete a particular program and where your financial aid is disbursed.
If Minneapolis College is your home institution, submit the online Consortium Agreement Request eForm. You will be notified of the result within 3-5 business days. Notification will be send to your @go.minneapolis.edu student email account.
