Enrollment Deposit

Once you have been accepted to Baylor, you can pay your enrollment deposit. Before submitting your enrollment deposit, please read our Deposit Policies below. After you have paid your enrollment deposit, allow 24-48 hours for it to process.

Deposit Policies

All accepted degree-seeking students must pay a $500 enrollment deposit by the specific deadline stated in the acceptance letter and the student’s goBAYLOR account. Once the deposit is processed, applicants will unlock their Enrollment Guide checklist of next steps in goBAYLOR (like the Housing Application, Orientation and Baylor Line Camp). Applicants who do not pay their deposit by the deadline may not be assured a space in the entering class.

Freshmen: The enrollment deposit is non-refundable for prospective freshmen. Students seeking financial aid should wait until they receive their financial aid award before submitting a deposit. Deposits are not transferable to future semesters. 

Transfers: The enrollment deposit is refundable for transfer students if a request for a refund is submitted by the student's specific deadline through the applicant's goBAYLOR account. Deposits are not transferable to future semesters.
