To establish policy governing the awarding of financial aid to UW–Madison degree-seeking students temporarily enrolled at another institution through a study abroad program or consortium agreement.
The institution where a student’s Title IV aid will be disbursed.
The institution where a student attends temporarily and requests the cost of attendance to be included in the home school’s cost of attendance through a consortium agreement.
Applies to all UW–Madison degree-seeking students requesting aid to attend another institution.
UW–Madison sponsors or co-sponsors a variety of programs at multiple international campuses.
The majority of study abroad programs are coordinated through the Office of International Academic Programs (IAP), but some programs may be sponsored by individual schools and colleges including Business, Engineering, Law, Education, Human Ecology, and Agriculture and Life Sciences.
While participating in study abroad programs, students are enrolled full-time for fall and/or spring semesters.
Students participating in a study abroad program during the spring or winter break must be enrolled at least half-time (excluding the study abroad credits) during the applicable semester to receive financial aid.
Costs and aid for students participating in a study abroad program during spring break will be included in the spring semester.
Costs and aid for students participating in a study abroad program during winter break will be included in the fall or spring semester as determined by the term in which the credits are considered.
A degree-seeking student who temporarily attends another school ("host school") can request a consortium agreement under certain circumstances and receive financial aid from UW–Madison ("home school").
The host school must be a Title IV-eligible school or an international program sponsored by a Title IV-eligible school.
Students whose host school is Madison College must be enrolled at least half-time at UW–Madison during the same fall or spring semester that they are enrolled at Madison College.
Students cannot combine enrollment at two or more schools to equal half-time enrollment.
Special students are not eligible to participate in a consortium.
Students, the host school, and the home school must complete all consortium agreement forms before aid can be disbursed.
Students are required to submit transcripts from the host school at the end of the semester. Students who do not submit their transcripts are subjected to UW–Madison withdrawal and satisfactory academic progress policies.
