Early Registration Priority Group Order

The primary purpose of registration at Baylor University is to ensure that all students have an opportunity to make adequate progress toward graduation. In order to match institutional resources with students’ academic needs, priority is limited to students who have a significant commitment to representing Baylor, an appropriately documented disability, or scheduling constraints due to the academic program they are completing. Regardless of the purpose of granting priority, it should typically only occur within a student’s classification.

Students within each grouping listed below will be assigned a time to register based on the total of their earned and in-progress credit hours.
