Consortium Agreements

The number of credits earned under an approved consortium agreement is integrated into the student’s record upon completion of the course. Note: Courses must first be approved for transfer by the Bethel College Registrar’s Office. The Consortium Agreement is also subject to approval by both the home and host institution’s authorized financial aid staff.  Failure to complete the course/s could negatively reflect in the SAP evaluation.  Financial Aid staff from the home school will request information from the host school during the enrolled term to confirm continued enrollment and (at the end of the term) satisfactory academic progress.  Failure to complete the course/s or completing a course/s in a manner that does not comply with College’s transfer standards will result in financial aid suspension and future requests for a consortium agreement will not be considered.  If a SAP appeal is approved, unearned hours under the consortium agreement will not be calculated when future progress reviews occur.

Drug and Alcohol Abuse Education

The Bethel College alcohol and drug abuse program extends far beyond minimum requirements for such programs. Since Bethel College does not permit the use of alcohol or drugs on or off campus, abuse problems tend to be hidden. For this reason the extensive program strives to reach five distinct outcomes:

  1. Training and information which may prevent some students, faculty and staff from abusing drugs and alcohol.
  2. Training for the campus community so that they will more readily identify current problems.
  3. An increase in the level of competency of intervention techniques in a manner that is caring and correct.
  4. Better referrals to appropriate agencies and follow up with needed support.
  5. A campus-based, user-friendly resource center housing specific, needed information.

The full description of the Comprehensive Drug and Alcohol Program is available upon request to the Dean of Students 574.257.3530.
