Financial aid is only available from one institution at a time and should be awarded by the college from which you will be receiving your degree. If you are taking classes at another institution during the summer and plan on using financial aid from UNI to pay the bill at your host institution, see the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships to complete a consortium agreement. A consortium agreement is an agreement between the student, UNI, and the host institution stating that UNI will be providing financial aid to the student for the specific enrollment period outlined in the agreement.
Once the consortium agreement is processed by UNI, financial aid will credit directly to your U-Bill at UNI. This could occur as soon as the week prior to the beginning of your first summer course. Financial aid funds will first pay off the summer balance owed to UNI. If excess funds are available after disbursement, a refund will be directly deposited into your bank account (if you have signed up for direct deposit). It is your responsibility to pay the other institution according to their due dates. You are encouraged to make sure all prior semesters are also paid in full at this time. If you drop credits after you receive your funds or if you receive additional funds that were not reported, you may be required to repay all or part of your financial aid.
