Financial Assistance for International Students

First-time undergraduate international students should consider the following options as they look to finance their Baylor education.

Academic Scholarships

Admitted first-time international students are automatically considered for academic scholarships based on a complete review of their high school academic performance.

International Student Scholarship

If you are an admitted first-year or transfer undergraduate international student, you can apply for the International Student Scholarship. To be considered, please submit these items by May 1:
  1. Complete the Baylor International Student Scholarship application form available through your goBAYLOR account after you've been accepted.
  2. Complete the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE. If you completed this step during the admission process, Baylor will use the submitted profile when reviewing scholarship eligibility. 


If your status allows you to work in the U.S., you can apply for a limited number of work-study jobs. These positions usually pay minimum wage for up to 20 hours per week.


Private student loans that require a U.S. citizen as a co-signer may be an additional resource.
