A consortium is a formal relationship with other institutions to increase travel abroad opportunities for Evergreen students. More than 300 destination programs are offered through consortia, and financial aid can be used to pay for approved program costs. Evergreen students pay the consortium's tuition and fees; they do not pay Evergreen tuition or fees when enrolled in consortium, with the exception of a $400 Consortium Enrollment Fee for each semester of enrollment. Enrollment is recorded at both the consortium and at Evergreen; Evergreen students register at Evergreen with a special Course Record Number created specifically for the designated consortium and retain their student status. Consortium credits transfer back to Evergreen with relative ease provided the student earns grades of C or higher; C- or lower does not earn credit. Consortium credits also override the normal transfer limits of 90 lower-division and 45 upper-division credits due to the Evergreen registration process.
