What we're looking for
Admissions Director Martha Allman discusses what the University seeks in applicants.
There are two options to choose from when applying to Wake Forest: completing an online application, or completing a paper application and submitting it by mail.
Wake Forest is the first Top 30 national university in the United States to make standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT with writing optional. If you feel your scores are a good indicator of your abilities, you may submit them and they will be considered. However, if you feel your scores do not accurately represent your academic abilities, you do not need to submit them until after you enroll.
