February 2014

Admissions Update

  • We are busy processing applications and transcripts that have been pouring in for our February 1 deadline. Because our deadline falls on a Saturday, we are honoring documents that are postmarked by February 3. Many students are breathing a sigh of relief to be done with their applications. Now for the hard part - waiting for a decision. Students who completed their application file by the February deadline will receive an admission decision by March 15. Late applicants will be reviewed only on a space-available basis.

  • When students decide that Baylor is where they want to be, they can reserve their spot in the entering class by paying the $500 enrollment deposit. This deposit allows them to sign up for housing, New Student Orientation and Baylor Line Camp. Encourage accepted students you know to submit the deposit by the May 1 deadline. Deposits can be paid through their goBAYLOR account.

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

Upcoming Events

  • On February 20, students who have paid the enrollment deposit will be able to sign up for New Student Orientation. Spots are limited for each orientation session, so it's important for students with busy summer plans to sign up early.

  • Know Where You're Going Day is March 1. This special event is for accepted students who have never visited campus before.

Did You Know?

  • Students can complete the Scholarship and Cost Estimator, which provides them with a preliminary estimate of the academic scholarship they will be eligible to receive as well as their estimated financial aid package if Baylor receives the results of their FAFSA by the March 1 priority deadline.

  • Our campus recreation department offers more than 40 Bearobics and Bear Cycle classes throughout the week at the McLane Student Life Center (SLC). Students can participate in Zumba, pilates, and spin classes among others for just a small annual fee.

Admissions Counselor Profile

Meet Brooks Powell, one of our admissions counselors. When deciding where to go to college, Brooks felt called to Baylor because of its commitment to faith and academics. Plus, as a fourth generation Bear, he wanted to follow the family tradition. During college, Brooks loved attending Big 12 sporting events and participating in Baylor's rich traditions. He graduated in 2011 with a degree in International Studies and History.
