*Wake Forest University uses a service provided by the College Board called IDOC. Families must submit their 2015 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.

Prospective first-year student deadlines for 2017-18 are the same as Admissions application deadlines:

Early Decision:  November 15, 2016

Regular Decision:  January 1, 2017

These deadlines are applicable for the FAFSA, CSS Profile, and tax returns submitted to IDOC.
