Financial Aid Consortium Agreements

How It Works


Ferris State University has agreements with community colleges throughout the state of Michigan that allow students to enroll in degree programs and receive financial aid from Ferris State University, but take classes at the designated off-campus sites. Consortium agreements also allow students to be covered under the Consortium Transfer Policy. This policy will treat your community college class, as if it were a Ferris course. Learn more about the benefits of completing a Consortium Form or schedule a meeting with one of our advisors for more information.

You are solely responsible for payment of your community college (CC) tuition bill or having a payment arrangement in place by the CC’s tuition due date. Your CC is not required to hold your courses because you are a Ferris consortium student. Ferris does not directly pay the CC. Find your CC below for more specific payment information.
