If you attend courses to graduate from another school while attending MSU, you may be eligible for financial aid for all classes if you apply. A consortium agreement is a written agreement between two accredited universities/institutions that recognizes the combined enrolment of a student for the purpose of granting financial aid. The HOME institution is the place where the student graduates and is responsible for the management of the financial aid. The HOST institution is where you take temporary courses. They can only receive financial aid from one school at a time. A summer excursion is required for geology majors, but is not offered by the MSU. The University of Missouri has an accredited course that meets this requirement.
