Please note that the application deadline for Fall 2017 admissions is December 1, 2016.

Please make a special note of the following items required by The Baylor Graduate School:

  • Unofficial transcripts may be uploaded for review but before an applicant can be officially accepted, they will need to have their academic institution send the official document.
  • The Graduate School places heavy emphasis on the total GRE score. Please allow four to five (4-5) weeks for the school to receive your GRE results prior to the deadline. Also, it is helpful to take the exam early in the fall; in the event that your results are disappointing, you may want to retake the exam.
  • Letters of recommendation should be written by professors, rather than by pastors or employers.

In addition to admission requirements of the Graduate School, the Religion department requires a research paper and an autobiographical essay.
