Scholarship values are limited to 87 attempted hours total including transferred credit, credit by exam, and failed courses. Baptist students and students in the joint degree programs may be eligible to receive tuition scholarships beyond 87 attempted hours. Married couples attending Truett together may also be eligible to receive additional scholarships.

Matching Scholarship

Baylor University will match on a dollar-for-dollar basis, not to exceed $1,000 in an academic year, scholarship funds given to Baptist students from a Baptist church, state Baptist convention or Baptist-affiliated program. Duly authorized Baptist church leaders must certify a statement for each check in order to request matching funds.

Matching funds are available for fall and spring semesters for full-time students in good standing. Matching funds are not available for the summer term.
