As you scroll down, you’ll find all the technical information you need to apply to Beloit.
But first, we want to make it clear that this is a human process about so much more than grades and test scores. We hope to learn who you are as a person and a student. We want to hear about your passions and dreams, your successes and disappointments. We will take into account the context in which you’ve worked, and any obstacles you’ve faced, and we won’t let them stand in your way.
We recognize our applicants come from a wide variety of schools and that curricular offerings vary. Most applicants have taken four years of English, three years of a foreign language, three years of mathematics, three years of laboratory science, and four years of history or social science. However, we will consider your application regardless of yourcourse of study.
The Secondary School Report is a form completed by your school counselor that provides Beloit College with an overview of your academic record.
While Beloit does not require letters of recommendation, we value the insight they give us into your ability, character, interests, and potential, as well as individual circumstances that may have affected you personally or academically. For that reason, we strongly encourage you to submit at least one, and we will read up to three.
Most recommendations come from teachers in core academic subjects, but we will accept letters from teachers in elective subjects, extracurricular advisors or coaches, employers, college access counselors, clergy, family members, or peers.
Beloit is unabashedly test-optional for both admission and consideration for merit scholarships.
If you feel that your test scores reflect well on your abilities and would like us to consider them, please send them. We will consider your highest subscores from multiple test dates.
You may submit test scores via the testing agency (SAT code: 1059 / ACT code: 4564) or your official secondary school transcript.
You may upload digital creative files (poetry, photography, art, etc.) through the online applicant status page. While you may also mail physical items to the Admissions Office, please note that these items cannot be returned.
To apply Early Decision, you must submit an Early Decision Agreement via the Common Application or the Beloit Application confirming that if you are admitted to Beloit College, you will enroll.
You will receive an email containing your login information 24-48 hours after your application has been submitted* so you can monitor application materials as we receive them and see when your application file becomes complete.
*If you submit a 2023 application via the Common App before September 1, please note that it may take a few weeks for our system to process. We thank you for your patience!
