Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

4.00 Average Rating
Beloit College does a really nice job at bringing in outside entertainment and nightly activities. The only complaint I have has to do with the meal plans. Right now there are no guest plans and all food services close after seven, leaving nothing open on campus after seven. However, this is in the process of being reformed.
Miranda from Plainfield, IL
i personally got a really amazing financial aid package. we have lots of scholarship options, including merit based scholarships.
taryn from berrien springs, mi
i mean, i got a fabulous financial aid package, but i'm definitely still suffering/paying off the remaining balance. it is what it is. wouldn't trade my beloit experience for the world, however. totally worth it.
kat from riverside, ri
There's no getting around the fact that Beloit is an expensive school, but Beloit definitely does its best to offer financial aid to every student who needs it. I don't know anyone at the school who doesn't get some sort of aid. Plus, the education you get at Beloit and the friends that you make are absolutely worth the hefty price tag
Marlee from Lincoln Univ, PA
Coming to Beloit was the most profitable experience of my life. It's expensive, but I changed as a person absolutely for the better. I'm happier than I've ever been thanks to the people I met and the things I learned at Beloit.
Matthew from Beloit, WI
Beloit is a pretty expensive school. However, you will definitely get what you pay for. Beloit gives out a lot of need-based and merit-based scholarships, which has helped me a lot. It also has a lot of work opportunities if you qualify. Don't be afraid to apply to small, more expensive schools. They will give you the personal help you need to get the most out of your college experience.
Emma from Minneapolis, MN
Infidelity a great school for the amount it costs. Even with it's big surface price tag, majority of students receive substantial financial aid.
Mel
Beloit is expensive.

That being said, Beloit has a tradition of giving out extensive financial aid packages. There are plenty of opportunities to get scholarships and aid, if you correctly demonstrate your need.

One interesitign fact is that the total of your tuition, room and board - though about $42,000 in 2010 - is only 75% of the cost of your education. Funds from alumni and other donors go to covering the extra 25%. So in terms of making the most for your dollar, it's all rather subjective, but Beloit is one of the better expensive schools to do so at, but only if you involve yourself in the campus and community. If you take advantage of opportunities such as clubs, sports, music/theater groups, study abroad, internships then you will definitely come away feeling as if it was worth it.
Amanda from Dearborn Heights, MI
The professors are all top-notch, and are really excited about what they teach. They all are interested in your opinions, and want to help you succeed in not only their class, but also connect what they're teaching to the outside world by helping you with research and internship opportunities.
Don't be afraid of the price tag! When I first looked, I nearly wrote off applying because of it. I'm so glad I didn't. Because of my good grades and lots of extracurriculars, I got nearly 2/3 off in tuition in scholarships [as in, money I don't have to pay back]! If you're not the best student, don't worry- Beloit Admissions is less concerned with your academic record than your involvement and potential for success.
