What is the Financial Aid Portal?
Through the Wake Information Network (WIN), Wake Forest students can securely and efficiently view and manage their financial aid.
The financial aid portal provides access to view your financial aid eligibility, upload supplemental financial aid forms, accept or decline loans, give your parents/representatives permission to speak to Student Financial Aid on your behalf, and much more.
You will be able to access your financial aid portal just like you do other student services.
