Scholarships and Financial Aid  

Beloit College enrolls a diverse student body, with students from all socioeconomic backgrounds. Transfer students may apply for need-based financial aid by filing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). 

Our Trustee Transfer Scholarship will be awarded to high-achieving transfer students. There is no separate scholarship application; candidates are recommended by the Admissions Committee based on the review of the application.
