State and Community College Co-enrollment Policies and Form

Printing, signing and submitting the co-enrollment form indicates that you have read and understood the UNK co-enrollment policies listed on this page.

The student must be degree seeking and enrolled in at least one UNK class during the semester they are seeking financial aid.

The student must be eligible for federal student aid.

Eligibility is determined once UNK has received the current year FAFSA, the verification process, if applicable, is completed, and the student is meeting UNK Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements.

The student must notify UNK if they drop a class at the host institution during that school’s “free drop” period.

If a class is dropped during the host institution's "free drop" period, the student must notify the Office of Financial Aid. A student is not entitled to aid for a class not taken. Aid must be adjusted, which may mean funds will need to be paid back to UNK.

The host institution is required to provide UNK with data concerning the student’s progress and must have an agreement with UNK.

Schools that have a consortium agreement with UNK are listed on the co-enrollment form. The host institution must provide UNK with student grades each semester. The host institution is also required to notify UNK if the student withdraws from a class.

There is a set time-frame for submitting co-enrollment forms.

Forms will be available and processed according to the following deadlines:

  • Fall 2017 Semester – July 1, 2017 to August 25, 2017
  • Spring 2018 Semester – November 1, 2017 to January 12, 2018
  • Summer 2018 Semester – April 1, 2018 to May 4, 2018

Forms submitted after these deadlines will not be processed.

The UNK census date will be used in determining enrollment.

The UNK census date is the last day of drop and add week during the fall and spring semesters at UNK.

For summer semester the census date is the Sunday before the first summer session starts regardless of what summer session you enroll for. At that time, UNK will ask your host institution to verify registration for the reported classes.

UNK equivalent hours will be used in figuring the number of hours a student is enrolled.

If the class at the host institution transfers to UNK for a class worth different credit hours at UNK, it is the UNK credits which will be used to figure enrollment status. Please click here to view transfer credit equivalencies.

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) will be based on UNK classes and the host institution classes

At the end of each semester, grades will be requested for the purpose of figuring the student's Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) status. When calculating SAP, UNK will use the grades and the completion rate from each school to figure the student's SAP status. Please click here for more information on SAP.

The student is responsible for payment at their host institution.

UNK will credit your accepted financial aid to your UNK billing account. If there are funds remaining after the UNK bill is paid a refund will be ordered. You should use this refund toward paying your bill at the host institution.

If you have set up direct deposit, the funds should be in your personal account within about 5 days of the refund being ordered. If you do not have direct deposit, a refund check will be available for pick up in the Finance Office within about 7 days.

The UNK budget is adjusted to include the host institution’s tuition and fees.

Tuition and fees will be adjusted to reflect the budgeted amount for the UNK hours plus the budgeted tuition and fees for the host institution.

Students will receive a notification at their Loper e-mail within ten days of UNK receiving their co-enrollment form.

A revised award notice will be sent stating that co-enrollment has been taken into consideration when determining the student's award. If UNK is unable to award the student, an e-mail will be sent alerting the student to the situation.
