Students who are temporarily attending a university while maintaining enrollment at
another (HOME) institution are considered transient. For these students, financial
aid is awarded through the HOME institution.
If you are a Augusta University student attending a HOST institution, you must complete the standard financial aid application process. Additionally,
you must submit a copy of your Request for Transient Permission (from the Registrar's
Office), a copy of your schedule/bill from the HOST institution and a Statement of
Intent for Consortium Study to the Augusta University Office of Student Financial
Aid. Once these documents are received, our office will send a Consortium Agreement
to the HOST institution. The HOST institution will certify enrollment and return the
agreement to Augusta University. Our office will then update your enrollment in our
system and disburse any aid for which you may be eligible. Students must pay for tuition,
fees, books, etc., out of pocket at the HOST institution. Reimbursement will not occur
until after the completed consortium agreement has been received from the HOST institution.
You are responsible for requesting that your academic transcript from the HOST institution
be sent to Augusta University at the end of your enrollment. Your student account
will remain on hold and no financial aid can be awarded until this transcript is received
If Augusta University is not your HOME institution, you must pay your tuition and fees up front at Augusta University. You must request
that your HOME institution submit a Consortium Agreement to our office. After the
schedule adjustment period ends, our office will certify your enrollment and send
the completed consortium agreement to your HOME institution.
HOPE & Zell Miller Scholarship recipients are an exception. These students must request their HOME institution send a HOPE Transient Request
Certificate to the HOST institution. HOPE and Zell can be received through the HOST
institution, but students will be required to pay any amounts not covered by these
scholarships out of pocket.
