Contractual/Consortium Agreements Policy

Consortium Agreements

The Office of Financial Aid does not routinely participate in any Consortium Agreements to serve as a home institution. Students may petition the Office of Financial Aid to participate in Consortium Agreements on a case by case basis.

Contractual Agreements

The Office of Financial Aid participates in a contractual agreement with John Hopkins School of Medical Imaging for students pursuing the undergraduate degree in Radiological Sciences.

The undergraduate Radiological Sciences Major requires a period of clinical study at Johns Hopkins Hospital, but allows students to earn their degree from NDMU. During this entire Program of Study, federal financial aid is processed through NDMU.

The Johns Hopkins School of Medical Imaging is recognized as an eligible institution of higher education for purposes of state financial aid programs.  These include Maryland State Scholarships and Veterans Benefits but do not include Federal Financial Aid such as Pell Grants and Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized Loans.  Students may also apply for a low interest loan through The Johns Hopkins Federal Credit Union (JHFCU).  The applicant must meet JHFCU loan requirements.  The Schools of Medical Imaging do not guarantee loan approval by JHFCU.  Specifics about loan policies can be addressed at the time of the applicant's interview or through the school office.  All financial arrangements must be resolved before attending the respective program.
