Admissions and Cost

How to Apply

A free online application can easily be submitted using GoBAYLOR. Through GoBAYLOR, applicants can create a profile and track the status of their application.

  1. If the applicant wishes to be admitted in the Aircraft Dispatch concentration offered in partnership with Texas State Technical College - Waco, they will select that option and follow the remaining prompts.
  2. If the applicant wishes to be admitted in the Professional Pilot concentration, they will be directed to a separate applicaton process for consideration. Pilot students will have the chance to select their preferred flight training provider, Baylor University Flight Center, operated by Universal Flight Concepts (UFC) out of the Waco Regional Airport (ACT) or Texas State Technical College - Waco (TSTC), located at the Colonel James T. Connally Aerospace Center in Waco - please be aware that TSTC is currently the only approved flight training option for students wishing to use Veteran's Administration educational benefits for all or part of their flight training costs.

An online application to Texas State Technical College (TSTC) Waco is required for Dispatch students and Pilot students who choose or are required to perform their flight training at TSTC. Dispatch students may delay application for the spring semester of their first year, but transfer students may need to apply immediately depending on their academic classification. More information about TSTC, including an online application can be found on the TSTC Waco website.

Tuition and Fees
Current information on Baylor's tuition and fees can be found here, but there are additional costs associated with flight training and taking the required courses for the Aircraft Dispatch degree plan. A planner outlining all four years of required courses for each of the degree options available within the program can be accessed below.
Flight Training Costs

Flight training costs are in addition to Baylor's typical tuition and fees, however they are factored into the student's cost of attendance which is used to calculate financial aid at Baylor. To be eligible to use financial aid for flight training costs, it is imperative that all flight training be completed at either UFC or TSTC. Choosing an alternative flight school is possible, but only if the chosen provider is paid directly with personal funds, alternative loans, or other financing options that may be available. Estimated flight training costs for both providers can be found in the callbox on this page.
