Students


Home campus

Each student admitted to a Consortium program will select one “home” campus from among the member community colleges offering the program of study. The admitted student is expected to enroll and pay tuition and fees directly to the “home” campus. When professional coursework is delivered face-to-face or in a group instructional television mode, the admitted student is also expected to physically attend coursework delivered at the “home” campus. Admitted students may be required to travel to other approved site(s) to attend assigned practice laboratory and clinical training. Once a student completes all program requirements, the “home” campus shall grant and confer the student’s certificate/degree, and these outcomes shall be counted and reported in accountability measures such as graduation rates, retention rates, and other institutional assessments.


Admissions

  1. All prospective students must first meet the general “open” admissions requirements and course placement scores for admissions to the member community college, before enrolling in general education and pre-requisite science coursework (as defined by their “home” campus), and prior to formally applying for admissions to a CBHE approved Consortium program.
  2. Under the authority of the Governing Board, additional more highly “selective” requirements and criteria may be established for admissions to each CBHE approved Consortium program. Each Consortium program shall establish universal admissions criteria and admission processes and procedures.
  3. A Consortium admissions counselor and/or program academic advisor at each “home” campus will be assigned to assist Consortium program officials regarding advising pre-professional students in the general education phase of coursework, and work with students admitted into a Consortium program. All advisement and admissions processes and procedures shall be coordinated by the Consortium Program Oversight Committee through organizational “dotted line” relationships with other key Consortium staff and local community college structures.

Registrar and cashier functions

  1. The Consortium Program Oversight Committee and each program director, along with local registrars and cashiers of the member institutions shall work together to establish policies, processes, and procedures to enroll all matriculated students each semester, and record all course work grades, transcript grades, and bill students for tuition and fees.
  2. Students matriculated into the Consortium program will enroll at the “home campus” community college of the student’s choice, and will pay the required tuition and fees to the home campus. It is generally understood that once admitted to the Consortium program, students are counted and reported as students of the “home” community college.
  3. All pre-requisite general education and science coursework taken prior to a student’s formal admission to the Consortium program shall be paid in the same manner as other native students attending the home community college campus.

Financial aid

  1. The Consortium Program Oversight Committee and each program director shall work together to establish policies, processes, and procedures for administering financial assistance to program students. It is generally understood that once admitted to the Consortium program, students are counted and reported as students of the “home” community college. This process shall determine the student “home-campus” for federal and state financial aid eligibility and account service. It is the intent of this Consortium agreement that all financial aid services shall be provided by the local member community college at their expense, and not by the Consortium.

Non-curricular student activities and events

  1. Students accepted into a Consortium program will be afforded the same access rights to non-curricular events and activities as those afforded to other currently enrolled native students on the “home campus”. This understanding will enable these students to participate in community college intercollegiate athletics, student activities and organizations, use the recreation facilities, library, residence halls, etc. All appropriate fees will be covered by the tuition/fees charged by the “home” member Consortium community college.
  2. Consortium program students will not be eligible to participate in the University of Missouri in Columbia, Division I, NCAA athletic competition.
