Consortium Agreements

Consortium agreements are available on a semester-by-semester basis.  Courses taken at another institution must apply toward your degree at Sacramento State.    The units enrolled at Sacramento State and the host campus are considered when determining Federal aid. Cal Grant awards are based on tuition fee assessed at Sacramento State.
