Applying for Financial Aid

Federal, State, and Baylor Need-based Aid Programs

To be considered for federal, state, and Baylor need-based financial aid including federal loans, federal and state grants, and need-based Baylor scholarships, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). There is no fee to complete the FAFSA.

If possible, use completed tax return information on your FAFSA; otherwise, provide your best estimates. Baylor's school code is 003545. Baylor normally receives results of the FAFSA within two to three business days.

Complete the FAFSA after October 1 (we recommend prior to February 1) to receive priority consideration for financial aid. FAFSAs received after this date will be considered for aid based on the availability of funds.

Currently enrolled students will start receiving their financial aid offers in early March.
