Receiving aid from IU Southeast while attending another IU campus
A Consortium Agreement is a contract between two colleges/universities that recognize the registration of a student at each site for financial aid purposes. It also certifies that only one of the two colleges/universities will administer Title IV financial aid for the student.
The Consortium Agreement refers to the two colleges/universities as the "Home Campus" and the "Host Campus". The "Home Campus" is the school where the student is fully matriculated and from which he/she will get a degree. The "Host Campus" is where the student temporarily takes courses, whose credits will be transferred back to his/her "Home Campus".
Students may be eligible for financial aid if studying in an approved Study Abroad Program, completing the Allied Health Degree and/or enrolled in classes at another IU Campus. All classes must transfer back to IU Southeast and count toward their IU Southeast degree. Correspondence and telecommunications classes are not eligible through the consortium agreement process.
Consortium agreements should be completed no later than 30 days prior to the start of a semester. Since additional information is needed from other institutions a longer processing time may be needed to verify and process financial aid. Tuition charges default to the institution where the classes are taken.
Steps to complete consortium agreement:
Stop by the Office of Financial Aid to pick up a consortium agreement or print one from our website at http://www.ius.edu/financialaid/article/financial-aid-forms#123
*Please note: there is an exception for students participating in special IU Southeast/Bellarmine Allied Health Programs

If you are a degree-seeking student at Indiana University Southeast, you should obtain approval for specific distance learning courses from the dean of the school or division from which you expect to graduate. If you are a degree-seeking student from another college or university, we strongly recommend that you talk to your academic advisor to make sure that credits you earn from an IU Southeast course will apply to your degree program.
Distance learning provides a tremendous opportunity for those whose work or family schedules have prevented them from realizing their educational dreams. Whether you live hundreds of miles away or just across the street from a campus, technology today is a solid bridge to link you with teachers, other learners, and a rich choice of learning options.
Indiana University is a member of the Indiana College Network and we encourage you to take advantage of the many online classes offered through this resource. Please note that each IU campus has their own online classes and schedules. Financial Aid may or may not be available for online classes that apply toward your degree through other campuses.
**At this time, the Department of Financial Aid at IU Southeast cannot apply Federal or State aid to online classes offered through the School of Continuing Studies Program at the Bloomington campus. We can provide financial aid for all classes through our regional counterparts not associated with the School of Continuing Studies "Independent Study Program."
For example, if you are a undergraduate at IU Southeast pursuing a bachelor's degree and you find A201 offered online through one of our regional campuses you can take it and receive financial aid through IU Southeast with a completed 'Consortium Agreement' form. If you choose to take A201w through the Independent Study Program at the IU Bloomington campus, Federal and/or State Aid is not available.
We encourage you to review the Indiana College Network. If you are an IU Southeast student and have any questions, please call 812-941-2246. We will be the only office to advise you on financial aid availability based on the information you provide.
We cannot give specific advice as to 'how or when' to register for online classes through other regional campuses, but we can immediately advise the availability of Federal and/or State Aid depending on the program you choose.
Schedules through regional campuses
Each Indiana University campus has its own academic schedule. The schedule for each campus can be found at:

In most cases, any and all of your financial aid can be used to cover the costs of a study abroad program and, indeed, it is possible that your financial aid allotment could be increased to reflect the higher costs of study abroad. It is recommended that you consult a counselor in the Office of Financial Aid early in your planning to make sure that all provisions are in place to maximize your financial assistance. In addition to regular financial aid and scholarships, there are also special scholarships designated just for study abroad. These include scholarships through the IU Office of Overseas Study for IU Southeast students participating in certain IU-offered programs in amounts ranging from $750 to $3000. The IU Southeast Overseas Study and Ed Quinn Memorial Fund Scholarships can be used for any IU or IU Southeast study abroad program and are typically offered in amounts beginning at $250, including up to two $700 scholarships for students participating in IU Southeast-based study abroad programs. The IU Office of Overseas Study is also pleased to offer the David Starr Jordan Scholarship for students participating in IU Southeast-based programs in which at least three credit hours are earned. Students applying for this scholarship should use the application form for the Overseas Study Scholarship/Ed Quinn Memorial Fund grants and students who meet the eligibility requirements will automatically be considered for the David Starr Jordan Scholarships.
