Academic Preparation

Summer Orientation (July 15-19)

Everything you need to know to make the most of your first year at Beloit.

Meet your classmates, learn about all of our favorite spaces on campus, and get a sneak peek into residential living at Beloit during our virtual Summer Orientation programming.

In addition to lots of fun events, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with key campus staff and ask lots of questions about important issues like health, safety, and financial wellness. Invite your family and supporters!

All events will be offered twice per day, once in the morning and once in the evening, so choose the sessions that work best for you and your family. The full Summer Orientation schedule will be shared in June.

Don’t hesitate to email us at orientation@beloit.edu if you have questions.

Advising & Registration (July 22-Aug. 2)

Meet your mentor and classmates and choose your fall courses.

During Summer Orientation, you’ll have your first group meeting with your AMP Faculty Advisor and your classmates and fellow advisees. We’ll cover how advising works at Beloit, credit and curricular requirements, information for specific careers and majors, and how to actually register for courses in the Beloit Portal.

After Summer Orientation, you’ll meet one-on-one with your AMP Advisor to make final selections and register for fall courses. Appointment registration will be available soon.

In preparation for advising & registration, we encourage you to review the information below for more information about the Beloit curriculum.

You can also meet the AMP Advisors, and explore the AMP Intro Courses.

Registering for Courses/Advising and Mentoring

You will be contacted by your Advanced Mentoring Program Advisor to schedule both an individual and group advising session over Zoom before your arrival on campus.

During the group advising session, you will discuss the Beloit curriculum and the course registration process, connect with fellow incoming students, and ask any and all questions you may have.

During the individual advising session, you will work with your AMP Advisor to explore available courses, discuss your interests and goals, and build a course schedule for success.

You will have additional opportunities to connect with your advisor and refine your schedule during on-campus Orientation. Explore the content below to begin to think about your course schedule.

Textbooks and Course Materials

Beloit College is here to help you quickly and easily obtain all of your course materials and books through our online textbook ordering service. Through this service, created in partnership with Akademos, Inc., Beloit College allows students to purchase their books and other required course materials at the Beloit College Online Bookstore prior to the start of classes and to charge these purchases directly to their student account.

What to know about charging your student account for bookstore purchases:

  • The textbook ordering service is available to all students, pending Bursar’s Office approval of individual student accounts.
  • Each student will be able to charge to their student account, up to $800 per semester, for required course materials at the Beloit College Online Bookstore.
  • Purchases that can be charged to the student account are limited to textbooks, art supplies, office supplies, and supplies for your residence hall room.
  • Charging directly to your student account will end approximately two weeks after the start of the second mod. You will have time to get your second mod books and materials right when you need them.
  • Approval for charging your student account is required for each semester separately, and all purchases on the student account must be made through the Beloit College Online Bookstore.

In order to obtain student account charging privileges, students must be approved by the Bursar’s Office in Financial Services.

  • The Bursar’s Office will approve and notify the Bookstore directly if one of the following requirements have been met:
    • Your student account is paid in full for the current Semester.
    • A payment plan is set up with Tuition Management Systems (TMS) for the current semester. (Payment plan must be current and not past due)
  • To make a payment on your account or set up a payment plan, please visit beloit.afford.com
