Emergency Contact Information

In case of emergencies, including weather alerts or other safety concerns, we need each student’s cell phone number (we have your beloit email). The emergency communication system simultaneously delivers messages via voice, text, and email. In addition, in the unlikely event that a student finds themselves in an emergency situation, college officials need to know who to contact. Complete this form on the Portal in the New Students section.

Sexual Assault Awareness Assignment

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 attend a presentation and discussion during New Student Days. 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. Regulations on this topic are found in the student handbook.

Student Health Forms

All students are required to complete and submit Health forms via the Student Health Portal. Having this information allows us to better meet your health care needs. Student health forms are due by January 5 If you have any questions about health forms, please email healthcenter@beloit.edu or call (608)363-2331.

Health Insurance

To ensure all Beloit College students have adequate medical and mental health care, all students will be opted-in to Beloit’s Wellfleet student health insurance.

The 2023-24 yearly student health insurance cost is $2,153, with $900 billed to students for the fall semester and $1,253 for the spring. Opt-in health insurance and competitive vendor vetting allow Beloit College to better manage healthcare coverage costs.

Students who are covered by other, comparable medical insurance have until January 5, 2024, to complete an online opt-out waiver.

  • Should you decide to waive coverage, Wellfleet will need to confirm your coverage before the waiver is approved.
  • If you have Medicaid coverage from Wisconsin or Illinois you may opt out of Wellfleet coverage; if you have Medicaid coverage from all other states, you may not opt out of Wellfleet coverage.
  • If you have a medical plan whose costs you share with others, such as Medishare, you must accept the Wellfleet coverage.
  • If you are an international student, you will automatically be enrolled in this coverage as required by your visa.
  • Your healthcare coverage must be confirmed annually.

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 and Wellness Center or Athletics. Please plan to bring a copy of your insurance card and carry it with you at all times.
