The Value of a Baylor Education

Investing in a private university education can be a real hurdle for many families. However, Baylor's tuition is one of the lowest of any major private university in the Southwest. Ninety percent of Baylor undergraduate students receive some form of financial aid from a wide range of sources. We are committed to helping students from all financial backgrounds achieve their dreams of a first-tier education.

What's more, Baylor delivers an amazing return for your investment. We offer the benefits and resources of a large research university, with the family atmosphere of a small school. Our campus is a nurturing environment with small class sizes, where faculty members know each student personally and care about your success.

Compared with students at other private institutions, Baylor Bears report a much higher than average satisfaction with every aspect of their undergraduate experience. In the 2013 National Survey of Student Engagement, 92 percent of first year students rated their Baylor experience as good or excellent. Eighty-nine percent of seniors said they would choose Baylor again if they could start their college career over.

But don't just take our word for it. Each year, Baylor is honored with national awards and recognition for our quality of education, affordability, baccalaureate value and more.
