If LCSC is your "home" institution, print the Consortium Agreement Form from www.lcsc.edu/financialaid/financial-aid-forms. If LCSC is not your "home" institution, contact the Financial Aid Office at the other school to determine what forms need to be completed.
Be sure to register at both schools.
If you are registering for a class that requires a pre-requisite, you must submit a copy of your LCSC unofficial transcript to the "host" institution to verify you have met the pre-requisite.
Complete Section I of the Consortium Agreement Form, be sure to sign and date the form.
Send the form to the Financial Aid Office at the "visiting" institution for Section II to be completed.
Once the "visiting" institution has completed Section II, submit the Consortium Agreement Form to the LCSC Financial Aid Office for completion.
The LCSC Financial Aid Office will forward the form to the Registrar's Office for review.
Once the LCSC Registrar's Office has reviewed it and made a decision, it will be returned to the LCSC Financial Aid Office.
Based on the decision by the Registrar's Office, the Financial Aid Office will either complete Section IV and adjust financial aid or contact the student if it was disapproved.
Financial aid based on your LCSC credits will post either before the semester starts (if all paperwork is in before the deadline) or once attendance has been confirmed in each of your LCSC courses.
Additional financial aid based on your Consortium Agreement courses at the "visiting" institution will be posted to your LCSC student account once your attendance has been confirmed for each of your Consortium Agreement Courses and reported to LCSC.
It is the student's responsibility to make sure that attendance is confirmed for all "visiting" institution courses.
Professors at the "visiting" institution will need to confirm your attendance via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The email should include:
Course title, course and section numbers
Date(s) of attendance
The email should come from the instructor's official school email
Earn passing grades in at least 67% of the credits listed on your transcript.
Credits from the "visiting" institution will be considered non-completed for SAP review until an official transcript is received. This could put you out of SAP compliance and ineligible for further financial aid until the transcript has been received.
