Consortium
Ferris State University Consortium

Ferris State University offers programs at many community colleges within the state of Michigan. Students who are admitted to an FSU off-campus program may earn their degree at the off-campus site and in some cases may be eligible to receive financial aid from Ferris to cover their community college expenses. This is known as a consortium agreement. Admission to Ferris State University off-campus degree-granting programs shall be contingent upon satisfaction of all Ferris State University admission requirements.

A student must be admitted into an Off-Campus, approved aid-eligible program in order for community college classes to be reviewed for approval to be added to their overall enrollment for financial aid purposes.  Main Campus students are not eligible to have community college courses approved to be part of their overall enrollment.

Only specific Ferris programs have consortium agreements. There are many Ferris Associates and Bachelor degree programs offered at the off-campus sites. Most programs require students to have either 48 transferable credits and/or have earned an Associates or Bachelors degree prior to admission. To view the most current list of programs at each off-campus site, please go to the Ferris Statewide website at www.ferris.edu/statewide.

Please note that not all Ferris Statewide programs are eligible for financial aid through Ferris.
