Consortium Form

The Consortium Form:

The form allows students to list the credit hours taken at each site and to list the community college classes.

The form is an authorization that allows FSU and appropriate community college staff members to exchange necessary information including, but not limited to financial aid, billing and record’s information.

The form serves as an approval for the community college classes by an appropriate FSU advisor.

The consortium form should be submitted every semester as soon as you are able to register for your community college classes for the specific semester you are looking to receive financial aid.

The consortium form is required each semester before aid for consortium students can be disbursed. If any changes are made to your community college schedule you MUST complete a new consortium form and list the new community college classes. If you are taking only FSU classes, the consortium form is NOT required.

The consortium form should be submitted no later than the 8th Friday of the semester and any consortium form received after this date will be reviewed on a case by case basis.  NO consortium forms will be processed after the semester has officially ended. 

The Consortium Form and Financial Aid:

For financial aid purposes, only classes at your approved community college site will be counted towards enrollment. For example, if your approved community college site is Delta and you decide to take classes at Mott Community College, the Mott classes will NOT be counted in your enrollment for financial aid purposes.

All of your community college classes must be applicable to your FSU program and the appropriate FSU advisor will make that determination based on the classes listed on the consortium form.

Please note: If the community college classes are not approved by the FSU advisor, they will not be counted towards enrollment for financial aid purposes.

You must also send a copy of your community college class schedule if you complete a paper consortium form.
