A consortium agreement exists among the five campuses of the University of Minnesota that allows students to take classes, including online, from another campus. Under this agreement students are allowed to attend another campus for either fall or spring semester during an academic year without losing their status or jeopardizing eligibility for student financial assisted programs at their home campus. It is critical that students understand the relationship with each campus for registration, student status, and financial aid purposes.
Please note that for summer registration all degree seeking students must apply for Multi-I student status before registering for summer courses at another University campus. It is recommended that you begin the process in March.
The Multi-I process starts in Morris One Stop. Please visit with a One Stop counselor about this opportunity.
The approval form confirms that your non-Morris courses will count toward graduation. Not all University of Minnesota courses will count towards the bachelor of arts at Morris.
The transfer evaluation coordinator approves acceptance toward degree and General Education requirements.
Faculty discipline coordinators approve courses for majors and minors.
Financial Aid Approval
Students receiving grants, loans, work study, or scholarships must discuss plans with a financial aid officer. Written approval on the application form is required. Note that not all courses taught at the University of Minnesota are eligible to receive financial aid.
Submit completed forms at the Office of the Registrar. In person submission is encouraged. Allow adequate time for processing. Students are notified via email when their setup is complete and can register on another campus as a Multi-I student.
Morris remains your “home” campus. You will self register through MyU for the “host” campus you are visiting.
If you are registered for classes at a host campus only (Crookston, Duluth, Twin Cities, Rochester), that campus will bill you directly for your tuition and fees. Any financial aid you receive at your home campus will be sent to you in the form of a surplus check which should then be used to pay your bill at your host campus.
If you are registered for classes at both Morris and a host campus during the same term, you will receive a bill from each campus for tuition and fees. If you receive financial aid, it will be based on the combined credits that you are registered for at both campuses. However, your aid will be disbursed and applied to your bill at your home campus ONLY; it will NOT apply directly to your bill at your host campus. You will be responsible for paying that bill separately. If you receive a financial aid surplus check, those funds can be used to pay your bill at your host campus.
One Stop counselors will review the billing process with you during the Multi-I application process.
