Combine Credits for Aid Purposes
If you are taking classes at more than one of the Idaho colleges in the consortium, your credits can be combined for financial aid purposes. With an approved consortium agreement, you can potentially increase your financial aid eligibility.
Home Institution: The institution where you are currently seeking a degree and where you will receive federal financial aid.
Host Institution: The institution(s) where you are taking courses which apply to your degree at your home institution.
Example: You are taking 9 credits at Boise State (home institution) and 3 credits at College of Western Idaho (host institution). With an approved consortium agreement, you will be considered full-time (12 credits) and be eligible for full-time aid at Boise State.
