Learn more about Beloit College’s COVID-19 plan.


When you apply to study abroad, you create a plan based on your previous studies and experiences, your hopes for your time abroad, and potential post-study abroad endeavors.

Application Deadlines

  • February 1, 2022 for study abroad during academic year 2022-23 (fall, spring, academic year)
  • September 15, 2022: late deadline for spring 2023 semester pending budget and places.

Application Process

  1. Consult with a study abroad advisor to select options that fit your academic goals. To make an appointment, go to Handshake.
  2. Meet with your faculty advisor(s) to discuss your plans and request a recommendation for the application. See recommendation questions here.
  3. Prepare your application in StudioAbroad
    • Access StudioAbroad using your Beloit username and password.
    • Complete the short-answer and long-answer questions of the application. (We recommend that you compose, share and revise your essays in a word processing program rather than typing directly into the application form.)
    • Request your recommendation within the StudioAbroad application. Your faculty advisor will receive a message asking them to complete a recommendation in the StudioAbroad system.
    • Upload your unofficial transcript from the Portal into the application.
    • Receive approval from the Global Experience Office and the Global Experience Committee
  4. Submit a second application to the relevant university/program after being approved to study abroad by Beloit College. Do so earlier rather than later to secure your spot and take care of administrative steps.
