Tuition & Aid

Beloit College is one of the best values in higher education.

Affording Beloit

We get it — it’s stressful to figure out how to pay for college. Here’s some good news: U.S. News ranks Beloit College one of the best values among national liberal-arts colleges and Money magazine calls us “one of the best colleges for your money.”

Because we’re committed to making a Beloit College education affordable for all students, we combine need-based grants, merit-based scholarships, student loans, work study, and state and federal funds into our financial aid packages.

Here’s what you need to know about our costs and aid:

  • 98% of Beloit College students receive gift aid (grant or scholarship money you don’t have to pay back).
  • The average grant/scholarship award is more than $27,000.
  • The average annual cost after scholarships and financial aid is $17,337.
  • We offer nearly a dozen merit scholarships, which can be combined for up to $37,000 a year.
  • International students can’t take out federal loans. To combat this, we offer merit scholarships for international students.
