International Student Financial Aid

What types of financial aid are available to international students?

Beloit College offers merit-based scholarships —funds that never have to be repaid—to international students. Scholarships are intended to supplement the difference between the cost of a Beloit education and the amount the student and their family is able to pay. Campus employment may be offered to some students to help offset personal expenses. Need-based aid for international students is available, but limited. Students that indicate that they would like to be considered for need should submit the Beloit College Declaration of Finances form or the International Student Financial Aid Application (see next question).


When do I apply for scholarships and financial aid?

All applicants must show proof of financial support as part of their application to the college. Complete one of the required forms and submit supporting financial documentation (i.e., bank statement, sponsor letter).

Submit financial support documentation to us by mail or email in PDF format to schoolforms@beloit.edu.


Does Beloit meet full need for international applicants?

Beloit College values a vibrant international community and awards generous merit-based scholarships to its international applicants. Yet, we cannot guarantee that we meet the full need of every applicant.

What advice do you have for international students applying for financial aid?

It is important to be honest in reporting the amount of money you and your family can contribute to your education. You should not over-estimate or under-estimate the amount of money you can contribute. Inaccurate financial support information could factor into final admission decisions.


Does Beloit offer any full-ride or full-tuition scholarships?

Beloit does not have any full-ride scholarships to offer.  A limited number of full-tuition scholarships are awarded to international students each year. These scholarships only cover tuition expenses, and the remaining costs associated with room, board, fees, books, personal expenses, insurance and travel are not included. We estimate that a student awarded a full-tuition scholarship must demonstrate a minimum financial contribution towards their education of $14,000 annually to cover the expenses.


What kind of merit-based scholarships does Beloit offer?

All candidates for admission are considered for merit-based scholarships. Presidential, Eaton, and Trustee scholarships are available to qualified international students.  These scholarships range from $10,000 to $30,000 per year, for up to four years ($40,000-$120,000).

Beloit College merit-based scholarships can be awarded in combination with other awards up to $35,000. Annual renewal of merit scholarships requires that a student maintains Satisfactory Academic Progress and is not on any warning or probationary status with the Dean of Students Office.


As an international student, am I eligible to work on campus?

Yes, campus employment is available to international students. You can find campus employment guidelines on the International Student Employment page.


I have my financial aid award from Beloit, but my financial situation has now changed.  What should I do?

If your financial situation changes, or there are special circumstances that we should consider, you will need to file an appeal. To file, complete the Request for Reconsideration of Financial Aid (International).

Email completed forms and documentation in PDF format to the Director of International and Transfer Admissions, guthe@beloit.edu.
