College Readiness/AVID Projects
Many teachers encourage their students write letters to Baylor Undergraduate Admissions as part of a class project. Below are guidelines to ensure the assignment is as beneficial as possible for students.
- Start with our website. This is the best place for students to find answers to the most common questions about attending Baylor - what majors we offer, the admission requirements, our costs, etc. It's easy to tell which students have done their homework before writing us.
- Have students include their personal contact information: name, mailing address, grade in school and email. This is the best way for us to be able to contact them with relevant brochures and information. We do not send individual student recruitment correspondence to a school address.
- Understand our limitation with freebies. Most letters we receive include requests for freebies - pennants, pens, shirts, posters, etc. While we don’t send these items in response to general requests for information, your students will have opportunities to get them when they visit us at college fairs or during a campus visit.
- Bundle letters into one larger envelope from the teacher. When we receive all letters together with a teacher’s full name and mailing address, we will send a packet of information (and some fun items!) directly to the classroom teacher.
- Consider encouraging students to contact us via email. They can find the admissions counselor assigned to their school at our Meet Your Counselor page. Your students will receive a faster response by email. We're also happy to respond to emails directly from teachers.
