Beloit College is offering up to two tuition-free semesters for students who enrolled in the 2020-21 academic year, recognizing that the COVID pandemic upended this year.
These two semesters will allow students to experience more of a Beloit education’s many dimensions, which go far beyond the classroom. This additional flexibility will allow students to access these opportunities while also devoting additional time to preparing for their lives after Beloit.

Have been enrolled full-time during the entire 2020-21 academic year,
Have completed eight full-time semesters (eligibility for transfer students will be determined individually),
Enroll in at least three units during each tuition-free semester,

Participants will be responsible for room, board, and fees, less any applicable federal aid. Eligibility for federal financial aid is limited to students who have not completed their academic program and will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
