Consortium Agreement Policy

Sauk Valley Community College – Consortium Agreement Policy

A consortium agreement is a written contract that enables students to pursue coursework at two institutions simultaneously. Under such an agreement, a student may receive financial aid based on total hours of enrollment at both institutions. Schools are not required to enter into consortium agreements.

Non-degree seeking students may request that SVCC serve as the host school and request a consortium agreement through the applicable home school. If requested and approved, SVCC will serve as the host school when terms of the consortium agreement can be fulfilled. If a degree-seeking SVCC student has a valid and approved academic reason for requesting a consortium agreement, SVCC will serve as the home school.

To qualify for financial aid the student must:

  1. Be enrolled in a degree-granting program at SVCC and be making satisfactory academic progress as specified by the SVCC Standards of Academic Progress Policy.
  2. Take courses at the host School which are applicable to their degree program at SVCC.
  3. Submit a completed consortium form along with a copy of the registration form from the host School to the SVCC Financial Assistance Office.
  4. Submit grade transcripts from the host School at the end of each semester for which they receive aid through a consortium agreement.
  5. NOT to be receiving financial aid at the host School.
  6. Understand he/she is responsible for payment of all charges at the host School.
