The financial aid application process for transfer students is similar to that of first-year students. Transfer students have the same opportunities for need-based financial aid as new first-year students; however, the merit scholarships transfers may apply for are different. Our Trustee Transfer Scholarship will be awarded to high-achieving transfer students. There is no separate scholarship application; candidates are recommended by the Admissions Committee based on the review of the application.
In order to apply for financial aid, transfer students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA may be filed electronically at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/. Students who do not wish to file online may submit a paper FAFSA instead of the electronic application; however, the paper FAFSA will take longer to process. Transfer students should file the FAFSA no later than March 31; and they should list Beloit College as one of the schools to which the FAFSA information should be released. Beloit's 6-digit federal school code is 003835.
