Wake Forest is Affordable.
Wake Forest has been ranked as one of the Top 25 National Universities in value in recent years, while meeting 100% of demonstrated financial need.
A Wake Forest Education is Within Reach.
Student Financial Aid provides the financial resources needed for enrollment by a socio-economically, ethnically and geographically diverse student body. We are committed to helping students with an appetite for rigorous work and a dynamic community, as well as the ability to intellectually challenge our teacher-scholars and each other.
Need-based aid — grants, loans, and Work-Study funds — are awarded to eligible students whose cost of attendance exceeds their family’s financial resources.
Learn about the steps you need to take to be considered for undergraduate scholarships at Wake Forest and how you can apply for outside scholarship opportunities based on special criteria.
