You’re not just a pathfinder; you’re a trailblazer, and that’s why we want to meet you!

Join us on Friday, September 20, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. (registration begins at 12:30 p.m.) to begin your journey at Wake Forest University as part of the Pathways to Wake Forest program. Please note that admission to the Pathways program does not signify scholarships for or admission to Wake Forest University.

Pathways to Wake Forest is a campus-visit experience open to juniors and seniors, designed for historically underrepresented populations, including but not limited to Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American, and Asian American backgrounds, as well as first-generation students.

At Wake Forest, we learn from differences and seek to create paths to be an inclusive community connector.

During this program, you’ll engage with our vibrant community and learn about our exciting and rigorous classes. Along with administrators from the Office of Financial Aid, we’ll share insights and offer tips to demystify the admissions and financial aid process. To further explore paths at Wake Forest, we also encourage you to sign up for an information session and a campus tour!

To be considered for this program, you simply need to submit the following:

  • a Pathways to Wake Forest application
  • your report card/transcript (a copy, PDF, or screenshot), and
  • an optional letter of support from a teacher, counselor, or community leader.

We’ll only consider complete applications; the deadline is September 13. We’ll notify students about decisions by September 17. If you’re not offered a spot to participate in Pathways, we still very much hope you’ll visit campus, engage in a personal interview, schedule a campus tour, and complete our application.

If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Thomas Ray, Assistant Dean, at or (336) 758-5203 or Ms. Karen Vargas, Associate Dean, at or (336) 758-4356.

We hope you’ll consider this path to Wake Forest University!

Thomas Ray
Assistant Dean of Undergraduate Admissions
