International & Exchange Students

Information just for you.

Please review all of the Incoming Students pages, especially the Timeline and Checklist, carefully. Most information applies to all students.

On this page, we’ve collected information specific to International Students and Exchange Students; both additional requirements and exceptions to requirements.

Information for International Students:

Accessing Your Beloit Email:

In certain countries, students may have trouble accessing their Beloit College email account without a VPN. If you are unable to access your email account, please notify admissions and provide them with a preferred summer contact email address to receive important communications.

Summer Orientation:

Please note that Summer Orientation (July 10-15) is offered entirely online through a combination of webinars, meetings, and pre-recorded videos. A morning and evening (in U.S. Central Time) version of each session will be offered to try to accommodate time zones from around the world. We encourage you to attend sessions live if possible, but recordings will be offered within 24 hours if you cannot attend.

Health Insurance:

To ensure adequate medical and mental health care in the United States, international students are automatically enrolled Beloit’s Wellfleet student health insurance. The cost for this insurance was included in the tuition and fees outlined in your financial aid offer.

For more information on coverage, visit the Wellfleet Student Health Insurance website.
