Freshmen Academic Scholarships for 2014-2015

At the time of admission, new freshmen are considered for one of the following four academic scholarships. For admissions applications received after February 1, scholarship consideration may be based on available funding. Academic scholarship recipients must meet all university requirements for regular admission. Recipients are required to maintain full-time undergraduate enrollment as well as the academic standards associated with each award.

Regents' Gold Scholarship
Baylor provides a full tuition academic scholarship to National Merit Finalists who select Baylor as their first choice college. Further, the Regents' Gold Scholarship is augmented by the recipients' SAT* or ACT score. Regents' Gold Scholarship recipients are not eligible for President's, Provost's or Deans' Gold Scholarships.
