Non-Century College Classes

Occasionally, students may need to take a course or courses for their degree or certificate program through another college or university. The Consortium Agreement is a process where a student can add credits from another institution (Host School) to the credits or enrollment at Century College (Home School) in an effort to increase their credit load and possibly the amount of financial aid.

Century College agrees to accept the credits taken at the host school on the same basis as courses it offers. The course or courses taken at the host school will be counted toward the student’s enrollment level for the purpose of calculating financial aid eligibility. The student is responsible for paying the host school for any tuition and fees owed to that school by the published tuition deadline date for the semester.

Consortium process differs depending on whether or not the host school is a MnSCU school. For a complete list of MnSCU schools, click the link and select View college and university profiles.

Host School (other institution) is a MnSCU School
