NOVEMBER 15 - SPRING ADMISSION
We do not have a preference on which application you choose. Regardless of your application choice, you must create a goBAYLOR account to track your application status. This is where we will communicate what is needed to complete your application file and additional enrollment steps for accepted students.
Your goBAYLOR account will show you exactly what items we have received and what is needed to complete your file by the deadline. Here are the documents that will be included on your checklist.
1. Completed Application for Admission
2. Essay: If you are applying via the Baylor Online Application, the essay will be available in your goBAYLOR account. If you are applying via the Common Application or ApplyTexas, the essay will be part of your application.
3. High School Transcript: Transcripts can be mailed from your high school in a sealed and signed envelope or through a secure electronic source (Naviance, Parchment, CommonApp, or TRex). Emailed transcripts, copies and faxes are not accepted. The transcript should include your class rank and grades through the end of your junior year. If your school does not rank, please submit a school profile or letter from an administrator that states the ranking policy. Non-ranking statements can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Test Scores: We accept SAT or ACT scores in these three ways:
*Baylor is collecting CLT (Classical Learning Test) scores for research purposes. If you have taken the CLT and would like to submit your score to Baylor, please send your exam results via the CLT website and we will add them to your application file as an additional piece of information.
PRO TIP: Send us all your test scores. We will combine your highest section scores from all test dates and review your best total score with your application.
5. CSS Profile and FAFSA
Applicants who are seeking institutional need-based aid are required to submit the CSS Profile and the FAFSA.
Applicants who are seeking federal and state need-based aid are required to submit the FAFSA.
If you are seeking the most aid possible, please submit both the FAFSA and CSS profile.
