Consortia agreements: The consortia agreement allows students who are enrolled at least half time (six credits) at UB to take a class at another institution. If you have financial aid, such as a Pell Grant, state grants, or a scholarship that are dependent upon full time enrollment, completing a consortia agreement between UB and your host school is the answer to having those credits count towards your financial aid enrollment. Start by contacting your Academic Advisor to make sure the course can be transferred back to UB and count towards your degree. Because this option requires you to be enrolled half time at UB, it is not necessary to receive federal student loans, you already qualify!
Inter-institutional enrollment: If you will be enrolling in a class or classes at another University System of Maryland school, the inter-institutional enrollment application may allow you to enroll in classes and have the registration and bill processed through UB. Check with your academic advisor to see if this is the option for you. With this option your inter-institutional registration will count towards your loan enrollment requirement for your student loans.
Study Abroad agreement: If you are participating in a formal study abroad program through another institution complete the Study Abroad form. To receive financial aid to fund your study abroad it must offer class credits that can be used towards your degree. If it is a semester long program it can substitute for your class registration for the semester, or for shorter programs it can be incorporated into your enrollment requirements for financial aid eligibility. For students participating in a University of Baltimore sponsored study abroad program this form is generally not required.
