Admitted students are automatically considered for one of four academic scholarships listed below. Applicants who submit application files after February 1 are considered for academic scholarships based on available funding.
National Merit semifinalists for the upcoming academic year are announced by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation in September of each year. Baylor offers a limited number of full-tuition scholarships to National Merit Finalists (finalist status is released in March) who are admitted to the university and select Baylor as their first choice with the National Merit Scholarship Corporation by the published deadlines.* In addition, the full-tuition award may be augmented by the recipients’ SAT or ACT scores. Students interested in being considered for one of Baylor’s limited full-tuition scholarships will also be required to attend an Invitation to Excellence event. There will then be a selection process to determine the recipients of the Regents’ Gold Scholarship.
