STEP 2: CHOOSE YOUR APPLICATION METHOD
 
We do not have a preference on which application you choose. Regardless of your application choice, you must create a goBAYLOR account to track your application status. This is where we will communicate what is needed to complete your application file and additional enrollment steps for accepted students.

PRO TIP: Whatever email address you apply with will be used to communicate important information throughout the application cycle and in the summer after you graduate. We recommend using a personal, non-school-affiliated email address that you will check often and use long-term.
 
Summer of Discovery Students: You should apply with the Baylor Online Application and follow the normal admissions steps. If you made a 3.0 this summer, you'll move to the front of the line for acceptance into next year's class! 
 
Your goBAYLOR account will show you exactly what items we have received and what is needed to complete your file by the deadline. Here are the documents that will be included on your checklist.
  • Completed Application for Admission
  • Essay
  • High School Transcript
  • Test Scores
  • Apply for Financial Aid - FAFSA & CSS Profile
  • Other Requirements
  • Recommended Items
