Admissions Update

  • May 1 will be here before we know it! Many seniors are busy trying to make their college decision, while others have committed to Baylor and are anxiously awaiting summer orientation. Encourage the high school seniors around you as they make this significant decision - it's a stressful time for many of them. The $500 deposit can be paid through students' goBAYLOR accounts.

  • 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

  • We will be hosting several Dr Pepper® Hour and Rally events throughout the month of April. 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 Premiere, our largest on-campus recruiting event of the year, is on April 5. At this event, students can explore campus, experience college life in person and ask any questions they might have about Baylor. Encourage your student to register today.

  • April 10 marks one of Baylor students' most cherished traditions, Diadeloso or "Day of the Bear". Every spring, Baylor cancels class for one day to give students the opportunity to relax with their friends and classmates on campus. Along with live music throughout the day, past activities have included different athletic competitions, armadillo races and camel rides.
