Application Deadlines

Giving Day:  Today is Giving Day! Make a gift, spread the word, and show you're Proud to be Beloit!

Admitted students who submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) prior to their application deadline will receive a financial aid award approximately one month after their admission decision. Applicants admitted under an Early Decision plan will receive a financial aid package with their admissions decision.

Early Decision and Early Action

Beloit College offers both Early Decision and Early Action plans. Our Early Decision plan is binding. If you apply Early Decision and are subsequently admitted to Beloit, you are committed to attending the college. Conversely, Early Action plans are non-binding. You'll receive a decision notification at the same time as Early Decision candidates; however, you aren't required to commit to the college until the regular decision reply date of May 1.

Students applying under Early Decision must submit a completed Early Decision Agreement via the Common Application or the Beloit College Early Decision Agreement signifying that if they are admitted to Beloit College, they will enroll.
