​​Question: What is a consortium agreement?

Answer: A consortium Agreement is a written agreement between two eligible schools. This agreement allows a student to be co-enrolled at UHD and another institution and receive financial aid based on the combined enrollment hours at both institutions.

The Home School is the school where the student is seeking their degree and is the college that will award the financial aid for them.

The Host School is where the student temporarily takes courses that will transfer back to their home school. The courses taken at the host school must be applicable toward the student's degree at UHD.
