This is a message that will only be pertinent to a relatively small group of you.

If you have chosen to submit your Common Application between the dates of August 1 and August 15:

If you are using the Common Application to apply to Wake Forest during those dates, you will not receive a confirmation email from us until 10 days after you submit your application. We don’t want you to worry! The five-day window during which to request an optional virtual interview or submit an optional video does not begin until you receive that confirmation email.

You do not have to use the Common Application, and, if you do, you do not have to submit it by August 15. We just wanted to alert Common App applicants submitting during those dates that they won’t receive an immediate confirmation email from us.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us at

Warmest regards,
Wake Forest University Office of Undergraduate Admissions
