Once a student becomes enrolled at Beloit College, families are under an obligation to pay tuition and fees as assessed. All tuition and fees are due by the semester due date as listed on the Beloit College website. Payment in full MUST be received prior to the start of each semester, unless enrolled in a monthly payment plan.
Those families who do not pay in full by the stated deadlines and/or have not signed up on a payment plan will be assessed a late fee of $175.00. Families who wish to make monthly installments must enroll in a payment plan.
We understand that some families will have federal or alternative loans and/or scholarships which cover the outstanding balance owed. Loans will be credited to the student account once all the necessary paperwork is complete. If the loan requirements are not completed timely, your student account may be assessed a late fee of $175.00.
Families who wish to enroll in a monthly payment plan will be required to enroll online or by phone with Tuition Management Systems https://beloit.afford.com/Home or 800-722-4867. A small enrollment fee must be paid when enrolling for each semester. The enrollment fee for 2019/2020 is $45. Enrollment is required for each semester a payment plan is needed. Any missed or returned payments will be subject to a $175.00 late fee. When using the payment plan, all balances are due by the end of the semester.

Tuition Protection Insurance (Optional)
Protect Your Education Investment with the Tuition Protection Insurance Plan.
Beloit College has partnered with GradGuard to offer tuition insurance by Allianz Global Assistance. The Tuition Protection Plan was designed with students and their families in mind. It can reimburse tuition payments, room and board fees, and other non-refundable college expenses if a student needs to withdraw from school any time during the semester for any covered medical reason such as illness, injury or psychological condition. This coverage expands the scope of the school’s existing refund policy.
