Creating an Affordable Wake Forest

The mission of Student Financial Aid is to provide 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.

We work to make it financially possible for students who are committed to philanthropy, service, friendliness, honor, and living Pro Humanitate to enroll at Wake Forest.
