If you plan to take courses at WCU and another school, such as a community college, in the same semester, and would like to use financial aid, you must complete a Consortium Agreement. This form gets taken to the financial aid office of the host institution, and then sent to WCU’s financial aid office. This allows WCU to package you for enough aid to cover the cost of both schools. Please keep in mind that WCU does not pay the host institution directly; you will receive the funds in the form of a refund check after the semester has begun. A Consortium Agreement must be submitted every semester during which you will be dual-enrolled.
