All two-day Orientation sessions have concluded. Freshman students who were unable to participate in a two-day experience are encouraged to attend the half-day Orientation on Wednesday, August 17th.

This Orientation will give you and your family an opportunity to hear important messages and have questions answered. There is nothing you need to do now - you will receive more information by Baylor email in mid-July with instructions on how to reserve your spot for this experience.

NOTE: If you still need to be advised and register for fall classes, please sign up for Alternate Registration. Your advisor will then contact you to advise and register you for your classes.
