Freshman Merit-Based Scholarships
Admitted students are automatically considered for a merit-based scholarship based on a full review of their comprehensive high school academic performance and completed Baylor application. Test scores will not be taken into account for the scholarship review process for students applying for the upcoming academic year.
Applicants who submit a complete admission file after February 1 are considered for merit-based scholarships based on available funding. Renewal is contingent upon maintaining a Baylor cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.
Baylor also offers a number of scholarship programs for high-achieving students. Scholarships range from $1,000 to full cost of attendance. Learn more and apply if eligible.
