Consortium Agreements

Texas A&M University-San Antonio offers students the opportunity to participate in a Consortium Agreement when they are dually enrolled at A&M-SA and the Alamo Colleges in the same semester.

Two or more schools may enter into a consortium or contractual agreement so that a student can continue to receive Federal Student Aid funds while studying at a school or organization other than his or her "home" school. The "home" school is the one that will grant the student's degree or certification (FSA Handbook, U.S. Department of Education). 

Please be aware of the following criteria for a Consortium Agreement:
    • Students must be enrolled for 6 hrs minimum at A&M-SA in order to participate.

    • Student must be making Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) as defined by A&M-SA SAP policy. 

    • The student is responsible for paying the Alamo Colleges' tuition and fees. A&M-SA will not provide funds to initially pay for the Alamo College courses.  

    • The student cannot receive financial aid from both A&M-SA and the Alamo Colleges. It is highly recommended to visit Alamo Colleges and request a financial aid cancellation. 

    • The student's Cost of Attendance will be adjusted to reflect the student's enrollment at A&M-SA which may result in an adjustment to the student's financial aid. (Actual tuition & Fees are used to calculate Cost of Attendance).

    • Consortiums are processed after Census Date of each semester to confirm enrollment and review if courses are required for the degree plan. Consortium Agreements will be processed before the end of the semester for financial aid to be re-adjusted and funds disbursed.

    • Financial aid will NOT consider or pay for flex courses at Alamo Colleges.

The following conditions apply to students when submitting a Consortium Agreement:
    • For each semester of enrollment, submit a signed and completed Joint/Dual Enrollment Agreement (available at the Welcome Center and online).

    • Submit a copy of the detailed class schedule for the Alamo College courses.

    • Be enrolled in a degree seeking program at A&M-SA.

    • If enrollment changes throughout the semester, contact the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid Office at A&M-SA.

    • Submit an official transcript at the end of the semester for which the Joint/Dual Enrollment Agreement was submitted.

Consortium Agreement Deadline: Census Date of each semester
