Transfer Student Orientation & Advising
We’re so glad that you found your way to Beloit College.
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 during New Student Days. While we know you are not new to college, New Student Days events and activities are essential for all new students to become oriented to campus and our community.
During that week, you will take part in a wide variety of 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.
The schedule for New Student Days/Orientation is available online.
On the day you arrive, you will meet the faculty member who will serve as your academic advisor until you’ve declared a major.
A good student-advisor relationship is critical to the success of students and it is a role that Beloit College faculty members embrace with enthusiasm. They provide information on requirements, guide you in the course selection process, and generally help you learn how things work.
During your first few days on campus, you will attend several group and one-on-one advising meetings with your faculty advisor. During these meetings, you will learn about Beloit College’s academic requirements, begin to explore potential majors as well as opportunities for your personal and professional development, and discuss your options for classes during your first semester on campus.
