Tip: Remember to select “Save for Later” if you’re not done with your application yet. Otherwise, the information will be lost. To ensure that you are prepared to complete the application, review the essay questions below. You can compose your answers ahead of time and copy and paste them into the application later.
While there is no specific due date, all applicants should apply as early as possible for advising and housing purposes. Applications for the Honors College open October 1.
Applicants are admitted on a rolling basis throughout the year, and acceptance e-mails are sent on a weekly basis.
You can apply to and participate in more than one Honors College program/major. In the Honors College portion of the goBAYLOR application, students should select all programs/majors of interest. If, at a later time, the student wishes to apply to another program, simply login to goBAYLOR to select the additional programs/majors of interest. The Great Text major does not require an application; you may simply select this as your major in your goBAYLOR account.
After you apply to Baylor, you may submit responses to these four Honors College supplement questions in your goBAYLOR account. Consider preparing your answers to these questions ahead of time.
