Transfer Applicants & Credit
Advanced Placement and Credit
Up to 8 units of credit may be applied toward graduation from tests administered outside the college, as described below.
Beloit College offers advanced placement or credit by examination for the College Entrance Examination Board’s Advanced Placement (AP) program. AP subject examination scores of 4 and 5 generally are awarded 1 unit (four semester hours) of credit and placement. Students who have taken the General Certificate of Education advanced-level examination will receive 1 unit of credit for each passing grade (A, B, or C).
Advanced standing also will be given to students who complete the International Baccalaureate (IB). One unit of credit will be given for each score of 4-7 for those who take the higher-level IB examinations, and for each score of 6 or 7 on a standard-level examination.
The college reserves the right to review each test to determine its acceptability. The appropriate academic department will review it in consultation with the registrar.
Applications for transfer from accredited colleges and universities to Beloit for entrance in August or January will be considered for admission on a selective basis.
All academic work of a liberal arts nature completed at other accredited institutions is part of the student’s permanent academic record at Beloit College. Official transcripts of such work must be presented at the time of application.
No more than 60 semester hours (90 quarter hours) will be applied toward the Beloit College degree. Only liberal arts courses with a minimum grade of C will be credited.
