Username and password

You will receive your Beloit username and temporary password via email. We highly recommend that you change your password immediately:

  1. Go to beloit.edu/password.
  2. Follow the instructions to enroll and change your password in Beloit College’s password system.

You’ll use this username and new password not only for email, but also for registering computers on the college network, printing, and accessing the Portal and Moodle (which some professors use to create online communities for classes). In order to protect your private information, as well as the privacy of your classmates, it is crucial that you never share your password with anyone—including parents or friends.

Email and more

Beloit College uses G-Suite (Google Apps for Education) for email. G-Suite also includes a calendar tool and a document management system called “Drive” that has unlimited storage. To access your Beloit College email account, go to mail.beloit.edu and enter your full email address as your username (yourname@beloit.edu).

Make a habit of regularly checking your Beloit email account. Most communications you’ll receive this summer will come via email, including your housing and roommate assignment, mailbox number, and financial aid information. Your Beloit email will also be an essential tool for communicating with professors, staff, and students at Beloit College.

The Portal

The Portal is an online application that gives students access to personal academic information: things like class schedules, grades, and transcripts. You can also register for courses and update personal information. Many forms referred to in this booklet are available via the Portal under the “New Students” tab. Log in through campus resources or at portal.beloit.edu.
