WACO, Texas (March 12, 2018) – Baylor University has introduced a wait list for its incoming freshman class this fall based on strong demand among prospective students and the rate of deposits received at this stage of the admissions cycle.

The announcement comes in advance of Baylor’s Premiere Weekend on April 7 for both high school seniors and juniors, in which prospective students and their families can explore campus, meet with admissions and financial aid representatives, interact with faculty and experience college life in person.

Baylor’s fall 2017 freshman class included 3,320 students, and the university projects a slightly larger fall freshman enrollment for fall 2018.

“We are really excited about this year’s incoming class, which is shaping up to be one of the most academically qualified classes Baylor has enrolled,” said Jennifer Carron, associate vice president for enrollment management. “Today’s prospective students are attracted to the many academic and social opportunities Baylor provides as a Christian research university, but they also appreciate the family atmosphere and the personal attention from our faculty and staff.”

Earlier this year, Baylor launched the “Where Lights Shine Bright” campaign across the state and online to spotlight the university’s distinct mission in higher education and to tell stories of how its students, faculty, staff and alumni are making an impact worldwide.
