For the second consecutive year, Baylor University has enrolled more than 14,000 students in fall semester classes.

Official 12th-day enrollment statistics compiled by the Office of the Registrar show Baylor's total university enrollment at 14,159 students, a decrease of 62 students from last fall's record enrollment of 14,221.

This year's freshman class includes 2,620 students, 181 students less than last fall. According to information released by Baylor's Institutional Research and Testing office, the average SAT score of the university's newest students is a record 1180, up from last year's average of 1176. As part of Baylor 2012, the university's 10-year vision, Baylor is intentionally reducing the size of the freshman class in order to bring down the faculty-student ratio from 19:1 to 13:1.

Overall Baylor has enrolled 11,987 undergraduates; 1,281 graduate students; 426 in the School of Law; and a record 353 students in George W. Truett Theological Seminary.

At the U.S. Army Academy of Health Sciences in San Antonio, where Baylor has graduate programs in healthcare administration and physical therapy, 105 students are enrolled. In addition, seven students are enrolled in the doctor of science in physical therapy (DScPT) program at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio.
