For Parents and Guests

For Parents and Guests

Parents, we invite you to be engaged members of the Baylor Family!

We know that sending a member of your family to college is a big step for the whole family. Below are several great opportunities for you to engage at the beginning of your student's Baylor story.

Attend Orientation

Each first-year student is invited to bring one guest to Orientation 2021. Guest attendance is limited this year as we modify in-person experiences to align with best practices, recommendations from campus health officials, and to ensure adherence to local, state, and federal guidance. We are excited to welcome one parent or other guest per student to participate in Orientation.

The Orientation schedule is under construction, and we will provide additional details as available. We anticipate that students and guests will have separate program tracks on Day 2 of Orientation, and that activities for guests will conclude by 12:00 Noon CT.

Complete Foundations Online Modules for Parents & Guests

You have the opportunity to complete a set of online modules called Foundations, which provides essential content designed to lay the groundwork for the start of the Baylor experience. While our new students are the primary audience for Foundations, we do provide the opportunity for parents and guests to complete a Foundations experience of their own.

After creating a Guest Account, you can log in to Foundations and complete the modules at your own pace. Pause and resume as often as you need. You can also return to Foundations at any point using your account credentials to revisit any content you've already completed.
