Scholarships for Living-Learning Centers and Residential Colleges
Some of our Living-Learning Centers and Residential Colleges offer additional need-based scholarships to those who are accepted to the program.
Baylor University’s Living-Learning Programs (LLPs) provide opportunities for students with similar educational interests to live together in residence halls offering structured learning environments. Campus Living & Learning sponsors many of these communities with the support of various academic departments and faculty members. In addition to the residential staff (professional Residence Hall Directors, Resident Chaplains, and student Community Leaders), Living-Learning Programs also have Program Directors who facilitate the admission process and oversee each program. There are ten Living-Learning Program options for you to consider:
Research shows students who participate in a Living-Learning Program have higher retention rates, are more engaged with faculty members, and have greater satisfaction with the overall college experience. Living in one of these communities will provide a unique living-learning experience that connects you to the Baylor community, while achieving student success.
Application Process - Deadline July 1st!
All Living-Learning Programs (LLP) require their own application process. Admission decisions are made by the academic program sponsoring the program. Students applying to an LLP are still asked to complete a Housing Preference Form. Acceptance into an LLP will override any traditional hall preferences you provide, and you will be placed in the appropriate living-learning community.
To apply to live in a specific Living-Learning Program, you will need to have been accepted to Baylor and submitted deposit. As you complete your traditional hall preferences in GoBaylor, you will be prompted to apply for a Living-Learning Program. This application system requires your Bear_ID and password. Your Bear-ID (Bobby_Baylor) and password provide access to the housing application, which includes individual applications to our 11 Living Learning Programs. Each LLP application consists of a few questions that help us understand your interest in the program and provides an opportunity for you to confirm your commitment to this Living-Learning Program. Living-Learning Program applications are accepted until all spaces are filled, but each LLP has a limit on the number of residents that can join the community. As such, it is best to submit your LLP application as soon as possible as spaces are limited and there is a deadline of July 1st.
Within 2-3 business days, a decision regarding your application will be made via email to your Baylor email address. Students must ACCEPT or DECLINE an offer within 3-5 business days from the date in which this email was sent. Failure to respond to the offer will result in the offer being voided and that space will be given to another student awaiting admission into the program. To accept or decline your offer, go into the GoBaylor system. Log again into the LLP Joint Application system using your Bear_ID (ex: Bobby_Baylor) and password, click on the My Applications tab at the top of the application system, and accept or decline the offer. If you have been accepted to more than one program, please note that only one offer can be accepted, and once selected, your status in other programs will be designated as DECLINED.
