Does your institution admit undocumented students?
Do you feel that your institution creates a welcoming and inclusive environment where undocumented students would feel wanted and valued on campus?
When completing the question on the application regarding citizenship, is there an option to select “non-citizen” or “Other (Non-US)” and if not, should they leave the question blank? Is a blank field permitted when completing an online application?
Beloit College is a Common App member institution and students may select the “Other (Non-US)” option in the citizenship field.
Do you recommend that undocumented students disclose their immigration status in the application, including essays or counselor/teacher recommendations?
For residency and tuition purposes, how does your institution treat undocumented students? (i.e., international, in-state, out-of-state, etc.)
Does your institution offer institutional aid or any type of merit/talent scholarships to undocumented students?
Yes. Merit scholarships, available up to full tuition, may be awarded to well qualified undocumented students. Students with a B+ or better average will be considered and those who have resources available (outside scholarships or other) to cover room, board, and fees will be given priority consideration.
How would an undocumented student apply for need-based aid at your institution? Are they required to complete a CSS Profile or an institutional financial aid application?
Students should print out and complete the FAFSA. Once completed, mail the form to:
Beloit College Admissions Office

Students can leave this field blank or complete with zeros.
Does your institution offer legal support to help students gain legal status by the time they graduate?
