Reserving Your Spot

Registration for the Baylor in the Caribbean summer study abroad program is on a first-come, first-served basis. Early registration is recommended as space is limited. Applications are available now and will be accepted until all 10 spots are filled.

PLEASE NOTE: The Summer 2014 trip is now FULL! Please apply and be placed on our waiting list. We still want to hear from you if you are interested in the trip.

To reserve your place in the program, please turn in the following:

  • Complete the Baylor in the Caribbean 2014 Application
  • $500 non-refundable deposit (checks preferred, but money orders, cash, or wire transfers are also accepted)
  • Unofficial transcript (can be printed from BearWeb)

Bring these items to Wes Nemec, office HSB 310 (Management/Entrepreneurship Department).


After the above materials are collected and processed, the student will receive an acceptance letter by e-mail. Once a student has been accepted into the program, the following materials will need to be collected before April 7, 2014 (these materials may be turned in with the application if desired):

  • Passport scan
  • Birth Certificate scan
  • Release Forms (PDF)
  • Payment of remaining program fee balance (checks preferred, but money orders, cash, or wire transfers are also accepted. $500 deposit will be applied to program fee)
  • Cell number to be used while abroad

Acceptance to the Program

After (1) your application is completed and submitted, (2) your deposit and transcript are turned in, and (3) you meet the criteria below, you will be granted acceptance into the program! At this point, we will notify you of your acceptance and deposit your check. Your spot will be secured!

Please note the additional criteria for acceptance:

  • You must not currently be on academic probation or suspension.
  • You must not be placed on academic probation or suspended between the time your application is submitted and the departure date. If you are placed on probation after your spot is secured, you risk losing your spot and forfeiting your deposit.
  • Your GPA must be above 2.75. If your GPA is below 2.75, you may still apply but you must provide 2 professor recommendations and your acceptance will be determined based on these recommendations.
  • If, prior to departure, circumstances arise that call a student's behavior into question, he or she may become ineligible for participation at the discretion of the program director.

If you are not granted acceptance into the program, your deposit check will be returned. If you are accepted into the program and your check is deposited, then you later choose not to participate, your deposit will be forfeited.
