Bachelor's Completion Programs - Community College Partners

If you are pursuing a bachelor’s completion program in conjunction with a Community College Partner, you will be required to complete a consortium agreement if you are planning dual enrollment for the same term. A consortium agreement is a contract between the student, Ohio University, and the Host (Partner) Institution. The consortium agreement must be submitted by the deadline listed on the agreement for the term you intend to dual enroll.

You must complete the consortium agreement and follow the instructions for submission if you will be receiving financial aid for the online bachelor’s degree completion program and plan dual enrollment.
