    Once you have submitted your completed application, you will have access to your Status Page, where you can upload additional materials, view the status of your recommendations, and check for admissions decisions (you will be notified by email when a decision has been made).

    Some Baylor graduate programs use third party common application systems for their admissions process (e.g. Engineering, Computer Science, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy). Applicants must submit the correct application for admissions consideration. If the application for the program to which you plan to apply is not available in the application dropdown, please use the Application QuickSearch to ensure you apply using the correct application.
