*Students who place into developmental English, Reading and Math courses must complete additional courses at Gateway to satisfy the agreement.

The Gateway and UW-P 1+3 Consortium Agreement is valid while the student is active in the Gateway certificate program. The Gateway and UW-P 1+3 Consortium Agreement allows students to receive financial aid from UW-P for their Gateway portion of the 1+3 program.
In certain circumstances federal regulations allow a degree-seeking student to receive Federal Student Financial Aid from the home institution* while studying at a ‘visiting’ institution; this is referred to as a consortium agreement.
In this case, UW-P is the ‘home institution’, since the degree will be earned at UW-P and Gateway is the ‘visiting institution.’
It is illegal to receive financial aid from more than one institution for the same period of attendance.
To be considered for the 1+3 consortium agreement, the student must complete the following:
- Consortium agreement. Student should complete the 1+3 Consortium Agreement Form and forward to Gateway’s Admissions office.
- Advance Approval of Proposed Transfer Credits form. Transfer credits must apply to the student’s UW-P degree. Student should complete the Advance Approval of Proposed Credits form and forward to UW-Parkside, Office of Admissions-New Student Services.
What happens after my consortium documents are received?
- Once the consortium documents have been received the UW-P Office of Admissions-New Student Services will conditionally admit you to UW-P and, if you are a financial aid student, the UW-P Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid will be able to complete your financial aid award.
- Your financial aid refund will be disbursed once Gateway sends UW-P verification of enrollment. Enrollment verification will happen after Gateway’s Census Date, which is the 10th calendar day of the semester. You must be registered and attending classes prior to Gateway’s census date to be considered eligible for financial aid. Census date information can be found at www.gtc.edu/student-services/financial-aid/census-date
- Your financial aid refund will go on your Ranger Choice Card. Your Ranger Choice card will need to be activated in order for you to receive the refund. For instructions on how to activate your Ranger Choice card visit: www.uwp.edu/departments/student.center/rangercard/activate.cfm If you wish to have your refund forwarded to another bank account, you may do so online once you activate your card.
- UW-P does not pay any tuition and/or fees to Gateway. All Gateway charges are your responsibility. You can pay Gateway via WebAdvisor or at any Student Services Center. Students with debts will be unable to access future services including transcripts or future enrollment.
- UW-P’s Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid will frequently verify with Gateway your current credit hours. If there is any change in your enrollment, your financial aid might be adjusted to reflect the change and you might owe aid back to UW-P.
