Consortium Agreements


What is a consortium agreement?

It is an agreement between two colleges/universities that allows a student who is enrolled at two institutions at the same time to have credits from both institutions count toward the student’s enrollment at the home institution.

What is the difference between a home institution and a host institution?

The home institution disburses the student’s financial aid based on the student's combined enrollment from both institutions. The home institution is the school where the student will earn their degree.

The host institution is where the student temporarily takes courses, whose credits will be transferred back to their home institution.

Am I eligible for financial aid through financial aid consortium agreements?

When a student is enrolled in a minimum of 6 credits at Davenport toward his or her degree and is enrolled at another institution taking classes concurrently, Davenport serves as the home institution. The student is eligible for federal, state or institutional aid from Davenport, including tuition waivers and discounts.

How often do consortium agreement forms need to be submitted?

Consortium agreement forms will need to be completed by the end of the first week of each semester.  If you are attending only session 2 courses, the form will need to be completed by the end of the first week of that session.

What type of consortium agreements are offered?

Davenport University has two types of consortium agreements. The two types are Blanket and Individual. Each consortium agreement has some restrictions based on the type.

Blanket agreement – A contractual agreement between an institution and Davenport University where the host institution has formally agreed Davenport will be the home institution and disburse financial aid. Click here to complete the form.

Individual agreement – An individual agreement between an institution and Davenport University. The college signs the Individual Consortium Agreement form authorizing Davenport to be the home institution to disburse the financial aid. Click here to complete the form.
