UNSC Next Steps

Confirm with University Scholars

Congratulations on your acceptance to University Scholars! Although you are accepted, we still need you to confirm (or decline) University Scholars (UNSC) as your major by logging into GoBaylor. We recommend you confirm UNSC as your major as soon as possible.

By confirming UNSC, you are indicating that you intend to enroll as a University Scholars major. You do not need to submit your deposit in order to confirm UNSC, and your UNSC confirmation is non-binding. If you have already confirmed your acceptance, your major will be changed to University Scholars. Your major will not be changed until you confirm.

Please see the opportunities for University Scholars listed below.
