Steps to Apply

How to Apply

A free online application can easily be submitted utilizing goBAYLOR. Through goBAYLOR, students can create a profile and track the status of their application. If the student wishes to study under the Professional Pilot concentration, they must complete a separate Aviation Sciences application. Early Action/Decision applications received by November 1 will be reviewed for admission determination by November 30. Any applications received after February 1 will be reviewed for admission determination by March 15.

Accepted students will have a choice of flight training at Baylor's Flight School, offered through Universal Flight Concepts (UFC) or Texas State Technical College (TSTC - Waco). Students intending to use educational benefits through the Veteran's Administration may have limited options depending on program benefits and certification status of the flight school - please email Baylor Institute for Air Science at Aviation@baylor.edu for the most current information.

If the student chooses to flight train at Texas State Technical College (TSTC) - Waco, an application to TSTC must also be completed. For more information about TSTC, including access to their online application, please go to the TSTC Waco website.

Scholarships & Financial Aid

Flight training costs are in addition to Baylor's tuition and fees, however, they can be factored into an overall cost of attendance used to calculate financial aid at Baylor including grants, loans and scholarships. For that to happen, it is essential that all flight training be completed at UFC or TSTC. Choosing an alternative flight school is possible, but only if the chosen provider is paid directly using personal funds, alternative loans, or other financing options that may be available; Baylor financial aid cannot be used.

Baylor Institute for Air Science does not offer department sponsored scholarships at this time, but we list many aviation-specific options on our webpage - Aviation Sciences Scholarships & Financial Aid. Additionally, the Undergraduate Admissions webpage is a vital resource and provides information on additional opportunities to help you pay for your education.
