Submitting Test Scores

These include GRE, GMAT, TOEFL, IELTS, or other standardized exams relevant to the program to which you are applying.

  1. Consult directly with each department regarding the test they require.
  2. To be official, test scores must be sent directly from the testing agency to Baylor University Graduate Admissions.
  3. Because it can take up to four to six weeks before Baylor University receives the results, applicants are advised to take standardized tests well in advance of the application deadline.
  4. U.S. CITIZENS:  Unofficial documents (score report copies submitted by applicant) may be sent for application review but official scores (from the testing company) must be received and confirmed for admission to be valid.  Please note scores reported on your application are  not  the same as unofficial documents.  INTERNATIONAL applicants:  Official results (sent to Baylor directly from the testing agency) are required for application.
