Apply to the HRC

Because admission to the HRC is very competitive, we encourage you to apply early.

Incoming Baylor Student Application Process

We encourage you to apply to the HRC as soon as you submit your deposit to Baylor. You do not need to wait to be accepted to an Honors College program/major to apply to the HRC. Your application for membership in the HRC will be processed pending your admission to an Honors College program.

HRC Application Checklist:
1. Apply to Baylor.
2. Apply to an Honors College program/major.
3. Submit your deposit, once accepted.
4. Begin Baylor's Housing Application (detailed below in "Pre-Application Process").

Pre-Application Process:
1. Go to the Housing Application tab in goBaylor. Log in using your Bear ID (first name_last name).
2. Submit the online Housing Contract.
3. Submit the online Personal Emergency Information Form.
4. Select your preferred housing option for first-year halls. (Male First-Year Halls: Kokernot, Martin, University House, North Russell; Female First-Year Halls: Collins, Kokernot, Texana, North Russell, South Russell)
5. Select your roommate. (optional)

HRC Application Process:
1. Now you can begin the Living-Learning Program Application to access the Honors Residential College application. (Log in using your Bear ID: first name_last name)
2. Select "Honors Residential College" to reach the application.
** If you accept an offer to live in the HRC or another LLP, your First-Year Hall housing option, which you completed in Step #4, will be canceled.

*After Round 5 deadline, applications for Living-Learning Programs will be processed as received.

Students must have applied on or before each of the stated Student Application Deadline dates in order to be considered. If interested in more than one LLP, it is best to apply for them all at once. In doing so, all LLPs will notify students their application status at the same time (LLP Admission Notification date). Students must Accept or Decline each offer received by the Student Confirmation Deadline date, or the offer will be void.

To accept or decline any offer(s) received, go to into the LLP Application system found in goBaylor under the Housing Application. Log back into the application system using your Bear ID (first name_last name) and password, click on the My Applications tab at the top of the application system, and accept or decline the offer. If you have applied to more than one program, please note that only one offer can be accepted, and once selected, the student’s status in other programs will be designated as "declined."

Specific room and roommate assignments will not be announced until June.

Important Note: Because incoming Baylor students must be admitted into one of the four Honors College programs to be eligible to reside in the Honors Residential College, our HRC placement committee will process only the applications of those incoming students who have already been admitted into at least one such program. Those who apply for HRC residence without having already been admitted into an Honors College program will simply have their HRC application forms held as pending until such acceptance (i.e., into the BIC, or into the Honors Program, etc.) can be verified.
