Two or more schools may enter into a consortium or contractual agreement so that a student can continue to receive Federal Student Aid funds while studying at a school or organization other than his or her "home" school. The "home" school is the one that will grant the student's degree or certification (FSA Handbook, U.S. Department of Education).
The following conditions apply to students for submitting a request for Consortium Agreement.

- Contact the Financial Aid Office at Texas A&M University-Kingsville of any changes of enrollment throughout the semester.
- Submit an Official Transcript at the end of the term for which Joint/Dual Enrollment Agreement was submitted.
Please be aware of the following criteria for a Consortium Agreement:
- Students cannot receive Financial Aid at both schools.
- Student's Cost of Attendance will be adjusted to reflect the students number of hours enrolled at Texas A&M University-Kingsville which may result in an adjustment to the student's Financial Aid. (Actual tuition & Fees are used to calculate Cost of Attendance).
