We’re Different. Like Everyone.
Demon Deacons come from all over the planet, bringing a galaxy of interests and ideas with them. Some know what they want to do from the moment they descend into this Forest, and they stick to it. But immediate certainty is not a policy around here. Exploration is a vital part of the journey, and diversity — of people, of thought, of studies and of activities — is a trait we’re happy to cultivate.
Due to the global impact of COVID-19, all student-led tours and admissions programming have been suspended. The campus is closed to all visitors. Read our official statement, and visit coronavirus.wfu.edu for more information.

Make Yourself at Home
More than beautiful brick buildings, technology or national rankings, people make Wake Forest the place it is. People who love challenge as much as they love learning, and the opportunity to engage all of who they are in search of what they were meant to become.
There’s plenty more to explore.
Schedule an Interview
We want to know as much as possible about you in the admissions process. Scheduling an optional webcam interview is another opportunity for us to do so.
Costs & Aid
The numbers can be daunting, but they are not disqualifying. Let us help you make a college education affordable.
A Wake Forest Education is within reach.
No matter how you apply, what matters is that we get to know you and gain a full appreciation of your excellence.
