Admissions Update

  • Regular Admission applicants will receive their admission decision by March 15 if they have not already received one. Anyone who applied after February 1 will be reviewed on a space-available basis.

  • We are well on our way to the May 1 enrollment deposit deadline. Encourage students you know to pay the $500 deposit and reserve their spot in the entering class. This deposit allows them to sign up for housing, New Student Orientation and Baylor Line Camp. Deposits can be paid through their goBAYLOR account.

  • 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 read about current students' Baylor experiences.

Upcoming Events

  • March marks the beginning of our Dr Pepper® Hour and Rally events. Dr Pepper® Hour is a time for accepted seniors to enjoy a Baylor tradition, learn more about the next steps in the enrollment process and meet other incoming students from their area. Rally events are for high school juniors who may be interested in learning more about what Baylor has to offer. Check out our website to see if there is a Rally event in your area!

  • Spring Break is March 8-16. We're looking forward to showing our estimated 6,000 visitors Baylor's campus that week. If you'd like to bring a group, be sure to let us know.
