To better assist your student, you should know which application your student submitted and be aware of our deadlines. We accept Baylor's online application as well as the ApplyTexas application, though we prefer students submit our online application. Our two admissions deadlines are November 1 and February 1. Within our November 1 deadline we have two application options - Early Action and Single Choice Early Action. To learn more about the different application types and deadlines visit our explanation of the different applications.
Regardless of which application form your student used when applying, they must create a goBAYLOR account to track their application status. If they submitted Baylor's online application then they've already created a goBAYLOR account, but if they submitted the ApplyTexas application they'll need to create an account. The following are the items required of all applicants, but additional items might be required from your student based on their individual circumstances, which is why the goBAYLOR account is so important. Key documents must be postmarked by the application deadline. See our Key Documents Chart as well as our freshman admissions website for further details concerning these required items. The key documents required of all applicants are:
In addition to the required key documents students may choose to submit a number of recommended, but not required items via their goBAYLOR account. They will not be able to access these items until they have submitted the online application. The optional items include:
At Baylor, our admissions counselors are divided into geographic territories so we have an admissions counselor specifically assigned to your student's school. In order to find out who your student's admissions counselor is, visit our Meet Your Counselor webpage. You can email your student's admissions counselor or contact them by phone at (254) 710-3435 with any questions.
If you and your student have not had a chance to visit campus, we would love to host you. For a list of upcoming campus visit opportunities visit baylor.edu/visit.
