As you complete your housing agreement, and once you get your housing assignment, you’ll probably want to learn all there is to know about your new home. To see photos and floor plans of your new living space, head over to Residential Life.
The forms mentioned below will be mailed to all incoming students once they submit their deposit. They are also available to print through the Health and Wellness Center page. Health forms are due by January 16, 2020. Students who have not submitted health forms prior to that date will not be allowed to register for classes. If you have any questions about health forms, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (608)363-2331.
What we need from you:
All Beloit College students are required to show proof of health insurance coverage for the 2019-2020 academic year, or enroll in the Wellfleet health insurance plan. If proof of insurance form (waiver) or enrollment in the Wellfleet plan (selection) is not completed by January 16 2020, students will be enrolled in the Wellfleet plan and $983 will be billed to their students account. Insurance charges cannot be removed from the tuition bill.
Whether you have your own insurance plan, or choose to enroll in the college’s plan, please note that you are responsible for paying your own medical expenses. Any medical expenses incurred will be billed to you and/or your insurance by the healthcare providers you see. Do not send insurance claims to the Health Center or Athletics. Also plan to bring a copy of your insurance card and carry it with you at all times.
To assist students in arriving on campus ready to start a safe and health college life, you are required to successfully complete a sexual assault awareness tutorial online and then participate in a discussion during orientation. The tutorial link is found on your Portal page. It can be stopped and started, but at least an hour is needed to complete it. Additional regulations are found in the student handbook.
Please share your emergency contact information through the Portal. You are required to have your emergency contact information on file. The college will use your emergency contact information to distribute messages with urgent information relevant to the campus. The emergency communication system simultaneously delivers messages via voice, text, and email.
If you have a disability, Learning Enrichment and Disability Services (LEADS) staff are here to help. If you plan to have accommodations like special housing arrangements, extra time on exams, print materials in an audio format and other such assistance, contact LEADS (608-363-2572 or email@example.com) as soon as possible (now for housing arrangements, by July 1 for other requests) to set up these resources.
