Consortium Agreement for Pell Grant and Federal Loans

Consortium agreements enable ASU degree-seeking students to participate in financial aid programs while concurrently attending ASU and another accredited higher education institution. ASU reserves the right to not enter into a consortium agreement if, in the opinion of ASU's Financial Aid and Scholarship Services, that consortium agreement would be administratively prohibitive. Consortium agreements assist in receiving additional financial aid, not for the deferment of loans.

You must enroll in at least half-time credits (6 credits undergraduate; 5 credits graduate) at ASU for the semester in question.  Students in the ASU Nursing CEP (Concurrent Enrollment Program) with Arizona community colleges, University of Mary, and Mayo Clinic students require enrollment in at least one ASU class.  If you attend ASU Online through our partnerships with Starbucks, Uber or Aramark, we will not enter into a consortium agreement with the exception of Nursing CEP students.  ASU Law students do not require enrollment in any ASU credits but must have the class placeholder on their schedule.
