International Student Aid
Scholarship and Financial Aid Application Deadlines
If you wish to be considered for international student financial aid, you should complete your admission and financial aid applications no later than January 15 for fall enrollment, or by October 15 for spring enrollment. International transfer applicants studying in the U.S. should complete their applications by March 15 for fall enrollment, and by October 15 for spring enrollment.
How do I apply for financial aid?
Students applying for financial aid must complete the Beloit College Declaration of Finances and International Student Application for Financial Aid.
Beloit will also accept the College Board ISFAA as alternatives to the Beloit declaration of finance forms.
Students not applying for financial aid must complete "Section A" only of the Beloit College Declaration of Finances and International Student Application for Financial Aid.
What types of financial aid are available to international students?
Beloit offers merit-based scholarships —funds that never have to be repaid—to international students. Scholarships are intended to supplement the difference between the cost of a Beloit College education and the amount the student and his/her family is able to pay. They are awarded on the basis of need and merit. Campus employment may be offered to some students to help offset personal expenses. Loans are not available to international students.
What advice do you have for international students applying for financial aid?
It is important to be honest in reporting the amount of money you and your family can contribute to your education in each of your years at the college. You shouldn’t over-estimate the amount of money you can contribute.
What is the largest scholarship available to international students at Beloit?
Beloit offers up to five full tuition scholarships each year to international students. All candidates for admission are automatically considered for merit scholarships up to $25,000. Although these scholarships cover full tuition, it is important to keep in mind that the additional cost of room, board, fees, books, personal expenses, and travel are not included. We estimate that a student must have resources of about $10,000 per year to cover these expenses not included in the full tuition scholarship.
