UW-L Financial Aid Policies
Financial aid for eligible students may be available for coursework completed at another institution through the "Consortium Agreement" process. Consortium requests from UW-L students pursuing coursework at the following institutions will be considered: All UW System Institutions; Viterbo University; Winona State University; Western Technical College. Consortium agreements are limited to coursework that meets the student's degree requirements. Students must complete the UW-L Consortium Agreement Form. The form must be signed by the student's academic advisor approving the off campus course.
Consortium requests from UW-L students pursuing a study abroad program through another institution must secure approval of the program through the UW-L Office of International Education prior to completing the consortium agreement form.
Consortium agreements will be considered for all sessions including Fall, Spring, Winter Intersession and Summer. These requests require additional processing time. Please apply early.
Students who participate in a Consortium Agreement will need to provide follow up paperwork showing that the course(s) taken at the visiting school were transferred back to UW-La Crosse. No future financial aid will disburse to the student bill until this follow up process is completed.
No consortiums will be made with institutions that have had their eligibility for Title IV Federal student aid revoked.
To request a consortium form / additional information, please contact Vernell Glenn in the UW-L Financial Aid Office at (608) 785-8604 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
