Continuing Students

2024-25 Academic Year

Continuing students must reapply for need-based financial aid by completing the 2024-25 FAFSA® (for federal aid) and the 2024-25 CSS Profile® (required in addition to the FAFSA® for Wake Forest need-based scholarship funds) between January 1, 2024 and February 1, 2024.

The 2024-25 FAFSA® uses 2022 federal income tax return data.

To inquire about the status of your FAFSA®, call the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 800.433.3243.

Students applying for only federal financial aid should notify the Office of Student Financial Aid and should not submit the CSS Profile®.

Students who submit the 2024-25 CSS Profile® should submit 2022 tax documentation (federal tax return with all schedules and W-2 forms) to the College Board’s IDOC service by February 1, 2024. Submission to IDOC is required even when federal tax information (FTI) was imported to the FAFSA® through Direct Data Exchange with the IRS.

To inquire about the status of your CSS Profile®, call CSS at 844.202.0524.

Continuing students with completed applications receive aid notifications before July 1.

Wake Forest makes every effort to maintain a similar level of financial assistance throughout all four years as long as a student’s family’s financial situation remains relatively unchanged. Significant changes in a family’s financial circumstances will result in an adjustment of a student’s award. Factors that can significantly reduce or eliminate aid eligibility include: a decrease in the number of family members simultaneously enrolled as undergraduate students, and increases in family income or assets.
