A consortium agreement enables the transfer of federal student aid (no institutional funds, i.e. scholarships or grants are eligible to be used) from the college or university at which a student has matriculated (the home institution) to the one being visited (the host institution). It is a formal agreement between two Title IV-eligible institutions and ensures that courses taken at the host institution will be accepted towards the student's degree at the home institution. Students must be approved by the Associate Dean of Academics' Office at the University of Miami School of Law prior to enrolling, whether it will be their home or host institution.
University of Miami School of Law students should:
- Contact the Associate Dean of Academics' Office at the University of Miami
- Submit the Consortium Agreement, including the Certification of Enrollment, to the host institution.
- Understand that no financial aid will be processed until a completed Consortium Agreement has been received by the Financial Aid Office.
