New students coming to live in Wayland housing must have been vaccinated by December 30, 2009 to be placed in campus housing at the beginning of the spring term. Students must produce official documentation of the vaccination. Documentation must be dated and signed or stamped by a physician or public health clinic. The documentation should be mailed to the following address:

We understand that cost is a vital factor in your college choice. Even more important, however, is the consideration of value received in exchange for that cost. With our commitment to making quality affordable, Wayland transforms college cost into an educational investment.
Because of the contributions of so many who believe in Christian higher education, the cost of an education at Wayland is among the lowest of any accredited, private university in the south. The allocation to the university's operating fund by the Baptist General Convention of Texas, gifts from alumni, friends and individual churches, as well as a growing endowment, contribute to the university's ability to reduce the cost of attending Wayland.
In addition, the aggressive approach of Wayland's Financial Aid Office has resulted in financial assistance for over 95% of our full-time students. Through institutional, state, and federal programs, Wayland makes available both merit and need-based assistance.
