Students impacted by Hurricane Harvey:

We are mindful of the needs of those impacted by hurricanes. Students who are unable to make one of our application deadlines or a previously scheduled visit should feel confident that deadlines will be extended and arrangements made to accommodate the circumstances.

We encourage impacted students, parents, and high school staff to reach out to us if they need any assistance -- we are here to help.

Application Deadlines

Beloit College offers both Early Decision and Early Action plans. Early Decision plans are 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. 

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 I: Apply by November 1

Decision Notification: December 1, Candidate Reply Date: January 1

Early Decision II: Apply by January 15

Decision Notification: February 15, Candidate Reply Date: March 15

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