Students who cannot afford to pay the CSS Profile application fee may be eligible for a fee waiver from the College Scholarship Service.  For more information, visit CSS/PROFILE Fee Waiver FAQ.  Wake Forest does not provide individual fee waivers.

*Wake Forest University uses a service provided by the College Board called IDOC. Families must submit their 2016 tax documents via electronic upload or a mailed paper packet directly to the College Board. The College Board will, in turn, make that information available to Wake Forest. Families will receive notification from the College Board of what to submit (and if mailing a paper packet, where to send it) after the family has completed the CSS PROFILE. You should always upload electronically or mail your tax documents to the College Board’s IDOC service, even if you have missed the deadline. To find out when semester charges are due, contact Student Financial Services.

First-year applicants who meet these deadlines will receive an award notification as early as November 1 (Early Decision), February 15 (Early Decision II), or April 1 (Regular Decision).

Returning students who meet these deadlines will receive an award notification in late May or early June.
