Transfer, AP, GCE, & IB Credit
Winter 2021: Pre-approved Acadeum Courses
Beloit College students, faculty, and staff can access a list of pre-approved courses on the Acadeum College Consortium by creating a login using their Beloit College email address. Students may request enrollment in these courses through the website. The Beloit Registrar’s Office and the teaching institution will verify course availability and pre-requisite requirements.
Beloit College will apply up to 15 units (60 semester hours) of transfer credit [including a maximum of eight (8) AP, IB, or GCE A-level units] from accredited colleges and universities toward a student’s degree. These credits may help students fulfill requirements in one or more of the following categories: (a) the 31 total Beloit units required for graduation; (b) Beloit’s “5 Domains and 5 Skills”; and (c) courses counted toward a major or minor.
Students applying to Beloit with transfer credits should include their most recent official transcript as part of their application. This information will become part of the student’s permanent academic record. Students applying as “transfer” applicants will receive from the registrar a transfer credit evaluation and graduation checklist. The evaluation and checklist will outline for students what requirements will still need to be completed in order to earn the anticipated degree.
Students enrolled at Beloit who wish to transfer credits for coursework taken after matriculation should complete a Transfer Credit Authorization Form prior to taking a course elsewhere.
Up to 8 units of credit from tests administered outside the College, such as the AP, IB, or GCE A-Level examinations, may be applied toward graduation. Students with applicable credit should have an official transcript or score report sent to the Registrar’s Office.
The College reserves the right to review each test to determine its acceptability. The appropriate academic department will review it in consultation with the registrar.
