Admissions Update

  • Any students who wish to apply for freshman admission must complete their application files this month. To have a complete application file, students must apply, submit an official high school transcript and submit official SAT and/or ACT scores. Sometimes additional items are required based on a student's specific circumstances. Remind students to check their goBAYLOR account for the most up-to-date status of their application file. All supporting materials must be postmarked by February 1.

  • Application files completed after February 1 will only be reviewed on a space-available basis and the past couple of years we have received so many applications by the deadline that we were not able to review late-arriving applications.

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

  • Are your students wanting to know what life really looks like as a Bear? Direct them to the Admissions Blog, where they can hear current students talk about their Baylor experience.
