Back at Beloit
A Safe, Sensible and Smart Return to Campus
It’s time to get back to business.
(And chemistry. And literature. And political science.)
We’re all in this together
We know you have questions
We hosted a webinar for parents where President Bierman, our provost, Eric Boynton, and others answered questions about the teaching and learning environment, what we expect from students outside the classroom, and how we’re approaching safety and wellness. And turtle masks. You can watch the recording of that webinar as well as look over our frequently asked questions.
New approach to coursework
This fall we’re implementing a modular approach: instead of taking 4+ classes at the same time for the full semester, you’ll just focus on two during two seven-week terms. The first Mod begins September 1 and the second Mod begins October 19. The final week of coursework after Thanksgiving, and final exams, will be conducted remotely.
Explore the new Fall 2020 Course Guide to find out which courses are in-person, online, or available to take either in-person or online. Beloit has risen to every challenge we’ve ever faced. We’ll post updates here as we have them.
Things have changed, here’s what you need to know:
The classroom and residential experience will look a little different, especially at first.
The choices you make outside of class will have an impact on our community.
We’ll be ready to adapt quickly if new outbreaks or disruptions require action.
Our primary commitment is keeping our community safe and healthy.
There’s nothing more important than the health and safety of our community. At the end of the day, that’s what guides our planning.Read more
