Transfer Student Orientation & Advising
We’re so glad that you found your way to Beloit College.
As a full-time student, you must sign up for courses in both mods during online course registration. Although the semester will be broken into mods, it will be treated as a single semester by the college as stipulated by the U.S. Department of Education. Students must take courses in both mods to qualify for financial aid for the fall semester and, to qualify as a full-time student, must be enrolled for a minimum of 3.0 units during the entire semester.
Regardless of whether you arrive with two years or one semester’s worth of college experience, we’re excited to assist you in your academic journey and make the most of your time at Beloit.
Your Beloit College experience begins as soon as you deposit when you get matched with an Advanced Mentoring Program advisor (AMP advisor) specifically for transfer students. The kinds of activities and sessions that we will offer during our on-line summer orientation program will allow you to meet other new students and become familiar with Beloit and how to thrive here. Later in September, we follow on with more to get ready for classes. In the meantime, view the advising and registration videos and then, as a transfer student, you can register whenever you and the transfer AMP advisor can consult and choose classes. (Don’t forget to do the Advisor Questionnaire for them; it will help.)
During New Student Days in September, we will offer informational and social activities. You will meet other transfer students, both American and international, and begin to learn your way around Beloit College. A dedicated student Orientation Leader (OL) will also be available to help you get acclimated to your new home.
You will start with the AMP transfer advisor, but when you are ready to declare a major (and/or minors) and want to add to your advising and mentoring team, you will get additional academic advisors. Throughout your time here, we also encourage you to acquire additional members of your mentoring team through staff, alumni, other students, Channel members, and anyone else that will help and support you.
