Transfer students have questions and concerns that differ from those of first year applicants. That’s why we have a counselor that works specifically with transfers. Please contact Kate Virgo, our transfer admissions counselor, with any questions. You can reach her at 608-363-2500 or virgok@beloit.edu.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Who is a transfer student? 

A transfer student is any applicant who has completed secondary school and enrolled in a postsecondary institution. Even if you have not yet earned many college credits, you still must apply as a transfer student and submit transcripts from all colleges/universities you have attended. 

I was accepted to Beloit last year and chose another college. Can I still attend Beloit? 

Our Admissions Office keeps applications on file for two years from the term that you applied for.  If you were a previous applicant to Beloit College, please contact us for information on how to reactivate your application to apply for an upcoming term. 

How many of my credits will transfer? 

Beloit College will accept up to 15 units (60 semester hours) of liberal arts credit to be applied towards the Beloit degree.  You must earn a grade of “C” or better for the credit to transfer. Most liberal arts classes are accepted for transfer credit; provided the class is of the level and nature offered here. Accepted transfer applicants will receive a preliminary credit evaluation with their acceptance packet or shortly thereafter.  

Is there a transfer student orientation? 

Transfer students enrolling with fewer than 7 units of Beloit College credit will participate in a First-Year Initiatives seminar as part of their orientation. New students with more than 7 units of Beloit College credit will participate in the Transfer Seminar during New Student Days

Is housing available for transfer students? 

Yes. As a residential college, 93% of our enrolled students live in campus housing in a variety of residence halls, special interest houses, and apartments. Beloit College expects on-campus residency for nearly all of our students.  Our Admissions Committee will review your application with the assumption that it is your wish to live on campus and join our residential community (non-traditional students are a recognized exception to this policy).
