Follow these next steps in your goBaylor account to ensure timely and accurate advising and registration for classes.

● Check your college credit

Do you have pending dual/transfer credit or credit by exam? Check the Equivalent Course Tool (ECT) to compare the courses you took while in high school at a college or university to the Baylor courses. Also, check Baylor's list of credit by exam if you took AP, SAT II, IB, or CLEP exams.

● Confirm that your degree, major, and educational goals are correct.

If you need to change your degree and/or major, contact your Admissions counselor.


Before you meet with your advisor:

● Check to find out if you are required to take a placement exam.

A placement exam may be required or recommended. For some students, Chemistry or Math placement exams may be required. The background information in foreign language on the New Student Advising Questionnaire is especially important for foreign language placement. Your advisor can explain how you may be able to complete the language requirement in fewer semesters if you have not already received credit.

● Review degree and major requirements at Baylor.

Major Academic Plans Four-year, semester-by-semester sequences of course requirements by major and academic unit based on academic year, academic unit, degree, and major. NOTE: The planners are for the current and previous years.

How do I get advised and registered for classes?

You will be assigned an advisor based on the major and/or program you have indicated, even if you are currently undecided about your major. Your assigned advisor will contact you and arrange a time for you to meet virtually to discuss your major and the courses you should take next semester. Your advisor will assist you in reviewing the degree plan for your intended major and selecting appropriate courses for the spring term. For students in most programs, your advisor will also register you for these classes during your advising appointment.

How can I make schedule changes?

After Orientation, you will be able to adjust your schedule in BearWeb.
