Consortium Agreement

If you are receiving aid from another college and will be using a consortium agreement, please submit the paperwork to Barton’s Financial Aid office.

Things to know:

  • A consortium agreement is not considered payment for your BARTonline courses. It is the student’s responsibility to pay Barton directly for their BARTonline courses, payment is due by the first Thursday of the course. 
  • The consortium agreement will be returned to your home school after all of your Barton courses have started. If you are in late starting classes, the consortium agreement will be sent after the last class has started.
  • Only one consortium agreement will be returned during a single semester (Barton has three semesters-fall, spring, summer. Sessions and parts of term fall within one of the three semesters). Please make sure and enroll in all of your courses at the same time so that  all are included.
