Thank you for your interest in Dallas Baptist University! We welcome applications from any individual seeking a Christian education with high academic standards. In addition to the genuine motivation for study, the applicant's maturity, integrity, and attitude are all taken into consideration by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. The University's desire is for students to come to DBU for an education and not just for a degree.

First year Applicant

DBU invites applications from qualified students who have graduated, or expect to graduate, from an accredited secondary school. Students who apply as regular first year enrollees must have graduated from high school or have satisfactorily completed the General Educational Development examination (GED). Students who were educated at home are also invited to apply and are subject to the same qualifications and requirements.

A personal interview with an admissions counselor is recommended for all students entering college for the first time. A campus visit is recommended, but not required. DBU hosts President’s Day Patriot Preview, Columbus Day Patriot Preview, and Patriot Weekend: A Preview of Dallas Baptist University each fall and spring semester to provide information on academic programs, campus life, financial aid, and scholarships, as well as to conduct scholarship interviews and campus tours for prospective students and their parents.
