Freshman Orientation is a two-day experience in June, designed to connect students to Baylor, in order that they may discover all Baylor has to offer. Students also meet with their Academic Advisor and register for their first semester classes.

All two-day Orientation sessions have concluded. Freshman students who were unable to participate in a two-day experience are encouraged to attend the half-day Orientation on Wednesday, August 15th. Students and their guests are invited to explore the university's exceptional academic programs and learning environment, while also experiencing Baylor's unique supportive community. You will be provided important information and opportunities to have your questions answered. An invitation with information about registering for August Orientation has been sent to students' Baylor email in July.

NOTE: If you still need to be advised and registered for fall classes, please sign up for Alternate Registration. Your advisor will then contact you to advise and register you for your classes.
