Deposit Policies

Please take a moment to read the deposit policies before you submit your enrollment deposit.

Accepted Freshmen

Accepted freshmen must pay a $500 enrollment deposit. Once the deposit is processed, a student can select his or her housing preferences through goBAYLOR.

Please note that an applicant who does not pay the deposit by the 5:00 p.m. CST May 1 deadline may not be assured a space in the entering class. This deposit is refundable if a request for a refund is submitted by 5:00 p.m. CST on May 1 (December 15 for spring applicants) through the applicant's goBAYLOR account. The summer deposit is not transferable beyond the fall semester; the fall and spring deposits are not transferable to future semesters.
