Wake Forest is Affordable

Providing for college can be one of the largest single investments a family can make.  At Wake Forest, we are committed to meeting 100% of an undergraduate student’s demonstrated financial need with a combination of grants, scholarships, work-study, and subsidized loans.

Your financial aid applications will become available October 1.  Admission and financial aid applications can now be completed in a parallel process, so do not wait for your admissions decision before applying for aid!

The financial aid applications will be used to determine eligibility for both federal and institutional aid. Wake Forest is one of a small group of private institutions that agrees to meet 100% of demonstrated financial need. This applies to all eligible students admitted by early or regular decision.

We are committed to the highest standards of professional conduct, as stated in the Code of Conduct developed by the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators.
