A consortium agreement may allow you to receive financial aid while attending Citrus College (home school) and another college (host school) at the same time. If you are already enrolled in 12 or more credits at Citrus College (15 or more if you receive a Cal Grant), there is no need to complete the process, since you are already receiving the maximum financial aid possible, and adding credits would not increase the amount.
To be eligible for consideration of a consortium agreement, you must:
- be enrolled in six (6) or more units at Citrus College
- be enrolled in a financial aid eligible certificate, degree, or transfer program at Citrus College
- have a completed financial aid file. View your Financial Aid Dashboard to view any unsatisfied requirements.
- meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Standards. View your Financial Aid Dashboard and click on the "Satisfactory Academic Progress" tab to confirm your current status.
- be enrolled in the course(s) listed on the consortium agreement, at the host school that are applicable to your degree or certificate program at Citrus College. If courses you are taking at the host college are repeating the course(s) you attempted at Citrus College, those courses are not eligible for a consortium agreement.
Consortium Agreement Process
Step 1 - Confirm that you meet the eligibility requirements listed above.
Step 2 - Complete Section 1 of the consortium agreement.
Step 3 - Obtain Citrus College Counselor's Certification.
Step 4 - Obtain authorization from the host college.
