Program entry begins in the fall semester. We only accept program applications via the SOPHAS application system. You will be required to submit a personal statement, reference letters, official transcripts, and official GRE scores. The application process is a two-step process: SOPHAS and Baylor. After your SOPHAS application is completed and verified, and you meet the minimum admission requirements, you will be contacted by the Baylor Graduate Office to complete the Baylor portion of the application process. The application system opens mid-August with a December 15th deadline. See Admissions for more details.
The SOPHAS application starts at $140 and increases depending on how many universities you select. The Baylor application is $50.
