Recommend a College Fair

If you know of college fairs happening in the spring that you think we should consider attending, let us know at admissions@baylor.edu.

Admissions Update

Students who submitted complete applications by November 1 will be notified of their admissions decision by January 15. If you know students who have applied already and have not been notified yet, assure them that we are reviewing applications as quickly as possible.

As soon as students are accepted, they can pay the $500 enrollment deposit to secure their spot in the freshman class. Though the deposit isn't due until May 1, submitting it now will allow them to select their housing preferences. Deposits are refundable through May 1.

Baylor Admissions is on Twitter! Follow us at @BeABaylorBear.
