Consortium Agreement - LCSC Home Institution

Admission:
  • Apply/reapply for admission to LCSC at www.lcsc.edu/admissions if you haven’t already.
  • If you are not a current student at the other institution (host institution), you need to apply/reapply for admission as a non-degree seeking student. 
Financial Aid:
  • Federal aid may only be disbursed through one institution per semester.  As an LCSC degree seeking student, LCSC is the home institution (the other institution is the host institution) and your financial aid is to be administered by LCSC.
  • Apply for admission and submit a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by March 1 to be considered for the maximum amount of LCSC financial aid.  LCSC’s FAFSA school code is 001621.
  • Your LCSC and other institution credits will be combined to calculate enrollment, but you must have at least 6 credits at LCSC to receive financial aid from LCSC.  Students who qualify for institutionally-funded scholarships from LCSC must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 LCSC credits. 
  • Complete a Consortium Agreement Form if you are registered less than full time at LCSC.  The form is located at www.lcsc.edu/financialaid/financial-aid-forms.
Registration at Another Institution:
  • You are considered a non-degree seeking student at the host institution.  Please contact their Registrar’s Office for policies regarding the number of credits you are allowed to register for and the maximum credits you can receive without declaring a major.
  • After you receive an admission letter or email from the other institution, view class schedules and register for your classes. 
  • If you are taking a class at the host institution that requires a pre-requisite, you must bring a copy of your LCSC unofficial transcript to the host institution to verify you have satisfied the pre-requisite.
Paying Your Fees:
  • Please note that students are required to pay fees to the host institution and LCSC separately. 
  • LCSC fees can be paid at the Cashier’s Window, outside the Controller’s Office, or on WarriorWeb.  They must be paid by the 5th day of classes (for Fall and Spring semesters).  Please contact the host institution to find out fee payment deadlines and payment options.
  • Professors at the host institution will need to confirm your attendance via email to finaid@lcsc.edu before funds are posted to your Student Account.
  • LCSC tuition and fees will be paid prior to any disbursements.
Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy (SAP):
  • You must successfully pass at least 6 credits at LCSC in order to remain in compliance with SAP.
  • You must maintain a minimum 2.0 grade point average.
  • You must earn passing grades in at least 67%  of the credits listed on your transcript.
At the End of the Semester:
  • Have an official transcript from your host institution sent to LCSC’s Registrar’s Office.  Remember that your signature and a payment is ALWAYS required to release your transcript from any institution. 

Consortium Agreement - LCSC Host Institution

Admission:
  • Apply/reapply for admission at your home school if you haven’t already.
  • If you are not a current LCSC student, you need to apply/reapply for admissions as a non-degree seeking student at www.lcsc.edu/admissions
Financial Aid:
  • Federal aid may only be disbursed through one institution per semester.  If you have a consortium agreement with another institution, the institution with which you are seeking a degree is the home institution (LCSC is the host institution) and your financial aid is to be administered by the home institution.
  • Apply for admission and submit a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by the Priority Deadline set by the home institution to be considered for the maximum amount of financial aid.  You can contact the institution for their FAFSA school code.  You do not need to add LCSC as a school on your FAFSA.
  • Typically your home institution credits and your LCSC credits will be combined to calculate enrollment, but you must contact the home institution to verify the number of credits you must be registered for at their institution in order to receive financial aid.   Requirements for scholarship eligibility can vary as well.
  • Complete a Consortium Agreement Form from your home institution if you are registered less than full-time at the home institution.
Registration at LCSC:

  • After you receive an admission letter or email, you may view the class schedule and register for classes online at www.lcsc.edu/warriorweb.
  • If you are taking a class at LCSC that requires a pre-requisite, you must bring a copy of your unofficial transcript from your home institution to the LCSC Registrar’s Office to verify you have satisfied the pre-requisite.
