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.
