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

As everyone adjusts to the changes across campus including dorm rules, dining protocols, classroom etiquette, and health checks, we’re supporting each other like Beloiters always do. 

Campus Alert Status

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 academic year 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. Explore the 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.

Students wear masks and practice social distancing

We’re reducing class sizes, incorporating online and hybrid classes, and adjusting housing and dining options to safeguard the health of our community.

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.
