      RELATES TO: KRS 164.518

      STATUTORY AUTHORITY: KRS 164.518(3),

164.748(4)

      NECESSITY, FUNCTION, AND CONFORMITY: KRS

164.518(3) requires the authority to promulgate administrative regulations for administration

of the Early Childhood Development Scholarship Program. This administrative

regulation establishes the conditions for Early Childhood Development

Scholarship eligibility for a student simultaneously enrolled in two (2) or

more participating institutions.

 

      Section 1. For purposes of the Early

Childhood Development Scholarship program, a student, who is otherwise eligible

pursuant to KRS 164.518 and is enrolled simultaneously at two (2) or more

participating institutions pursuing a program of study jointly offered by those

institutions, shall be eligible under this section if:

      (1) The eligible program of study is covered

by a consortium agreement between the participating institutions; and

      (2) The eligible postsecondary student is

carrying a combined academic workload at all participating institutions in the

consortium equal to no more than nine (9) credit hours, except as provided in

11 KAR 16:010, Section 1(1)(a).

 

      Section 2. Consortium Agreement. Two (2)

or more participating institutions in the Early Childhood Development Scholarship

program shall, for purposes of Section 1 of this administrative regulation,

execute a consortium agreement which meets at least the following terms and

conditions:

      (1) The agreement shall be written and

signed by authorized representatives of each participating institution;

      (2) The agreement shall designate which participating

institution will serve as the "primary" institution; and

      (3) The agreement shall specify that the

primary institution shall perform the duties set forth in Section 3 of this

administrative regulation.

 

      Section 3. Duties of Primary Institution.

The primary institution designated in a consortium agreement shall assume the

following duties and responsibilities:

      (1) Maintain all records, including

information from all participating institutions about the eligible

postsecondary student’s grades, institutional costs incurred, financial aid received,

enrollment, and all other information related to the student’s eligibility as

is required to be maintained on any other Early Childhood Development Scholarship

recipient enrolled in the primary institution;

      (2) Disburse the Early Childhood

Development Scholarship to the eligible postsecondary student;

      (3) Confer academic credit to the

eligible postsecondary student for all courses completed at other participating

institutions under the consortium agreement as if the courses had been provided

by the primary institution;

      (4) Monitor the eligible postsecondary

student’s enrollment status at all participating institutions in the consortium

and indicate the student’s enrollment at the primary institution as the

equivalent of the combined enrollment at all participating institutions in the

consortium;

      (5) Calculate any refund or repayment and

make an applicable refund based on the primary institution’s refund policy, as

provided in 11 KAR 16:030 based upon a change in enrollment at a participating

institution in the consortium, as if the student were enrolled at the primary

institution; and

      (6) Provide to the authority, on behalf

of all participating institutions in the consortium, all required reports and

notifications as if the student were enrolled only at the primary institution.

 

      Section 4. The consortium agreement may

contain other terms and conditions, not inconsistent with this administrative

regulation, as may be deemed necessary or appropriate by the participating

institutions. (33 Ky.R. 3304; Am. 3593; eff. 7-6-2007.)
