Once you receive your visa and you can transition to our on-campus program, you can start planning to arrive at university at the start of the next semester.
After you obtain your visa [link to visa page], please complete these next steps to prepare for your travel to the USA:
Please use your official name (name on your passport and what you used to apply to Baylor) on all forms and correspondence.
Baylor has a selection of residence halls to suit all living styles. A Student Enrollment Adviser will help you choose and secure your student accommodation after your application is accepted.
After receiving your student visa, you can book your travel to the USA. Waco Regional Airport is the closest airport to campus. You may need to arrange a flight to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, where you can take a bus or a connecting flight to Waco.
It’s worth bringing a few favorite things from home to decorate your room and make it more welcoming. But don’t fill your bag with lots of heavy items; most of what you need, you can buy when you get here. Have a think about what you might want to pack in your hand luggage, to keep you comfortable on the journey.
We will work with you closely to make sure you are successful in your classes.
You will be welcomed into the Baylor family from your first day. Now it’s time to get ready.
