International students

The International Hour

If you’re a student from outside the United States, please consider joining us to discuss any questions you might have with Niki McInteer, our Associate Dean of Admissions who works specifically with international applicants. This session is not a structured presentation. Instead, we’re hoping that you will come ready to engage with the Office of Admissions to learn more about Wake Forest from an international perspective.

Sessions will take place every other Thursday at 8 a.m. ET.
