STEP 2: CHOOSE YOUR APPLICATION METHOD
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. Applicants via Common App or ApplyTexas will receive separate emailed instructions on how to activate their goBAYLOR account. Please allow 24-48 hours to process.
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.
STEP 3: REVIEW THE APPLICATION CHECKLIST
Your goBAYLOR account will show exactly what items we have received and what is needed to complete your file by the deadline.
