Congratulations on being accepted into Baylor and a special welcome from all of us in CEGSS and the Baylor Biology Department.  As an International Student, there are additional things you must take into consideration before and after your arrival at Baylor.  Below you will find resources tailored to help international students succeed at Baylor.

Complete the Graduate School’s Checklist

Make sure to view and complete everything on the Baylor Graduate School Checklist.  This includes activating your BearID and email, filling out health and work paperwork, sending final transcripts, etc.

International Student and Scholar Services

The Center for Global Engagement has a page dedicated to helping Prospective, New, and Current International Students.  Make sure to check out their page to see the resources that they provide.

Helpful Tips for International Students

As an international student, you will find that requirements around taxes, IDs, etc. will be different than those for your non-international peers.  Luckily for you, one of our current graduate students has written up some helpful hints to help you navigate being an international student at Baylor.
