Baylor enrolled its highest-achieving freshman class ever and advanced undergraduate retention and graduation rates to record levels, according to 12th class day statistics from the University’s Office of Institutional Research and Testing (IRT).
“Our freshman class is a testament to Baylor’s strength and resilience as we achieved our enrollment projections with the most academically qualified first-year class in our history,” Baylor President Linda A. Livingstone, PhD, said.
Notable points about Baylor’s freshman enrollment of 3,366 students include:
The University’s fall-to-fall retention among freshmen from fall 2017 to fall 2018 fell slightly to 88.8 percent but is still among the highest in University history.
Baylor’s overall enrollment measured 17,217 students. The University has enrolled 14,188 undergraduate students and 3,029 graduate and professional students in the Graduate School, George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor Law School, Diana R. Garland School of Social Work and Baylor/U.S. Army affiliated degree programs.
