International Student Financial Aid

What types of financial aid are available to international students?

Beloit College 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 education and the amount the student and their family is able to pay. Campus employment may be offered to some students to help offset personal expenses. Need-based aid for international students is extremely limited. Loans are not available to international students.


When do I apply for scholarships and financial aid?

All applicants must show proof of financial support for their education as part of the application.  Completion of one of the following forms and submission of supporting financial documentation (i.e., bank statement, sponsor letter) is required.

Financial support documentation can be submitted to us by mail, or scanned and sent in PDF format to schoolforms@beloit.edu.


Does Beloit meet full need for international applicants?

Beloit College values a vibrant international community and awards generous merit-based scholarships to its international applicants. However, we cannot guarantee that we can meet the full need of every applicant.

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 should not over-estimate or under-estimate the amount of money you can contribute. Inaccurate financial support information could factor into final admission decisions.


Does Beloit offer any full-ride or full-tuition scholarships?

Beloit does offers a limited number of full-tuition scholarships each year to international students. 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 at least $11,000 per year to cover the expenses not included in the full-tuition scholarship.


What kind of merit-based or interest-based scholarships does Beloit offer?

All candidates for admission are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships. Presidential, Eaton, and Trustee scholarships are available to qualified international students.  These scholarships range from $15,000 to $25,000 per year, for up to four years ($60,000-$100,000).

Beloit College merit-based scholarships may be awarded in combination up to a maximum of $30,000 annually. Renewal of merit scholarships is predicated on students maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress and not being in any warning or probationary status with the Dean of Students Office.


As an international student, am I eligible to work on campus?

Yes, campus employment is available to international students. Further information on campus employment guidelines for international students can be found here.


I have received my financial aid award from Beloit, but my financial circumstances have now changed.  What should I do?

If your financial circumstances change, or if there are special or extenuating circumstances that you believe should be considered. The Request for Appeal/Special Circumstances Consideration Form and all supporting documentation must be submitted to the Director of International Admission as soon as new circumstances become apparent. 

Forms and documentation can be sent electronically in PDF format to guthe@beloit.edu.
