Group Visits

Group visits are a great way for many students to visit a college campus alongside their peers from their school or academic program. While we would like to accommodate all visitors who wish to come to campus, high demand for group visits does not allow us to guarantee this opportunity. We ask that all groups take the time to review our guidelines and submit the Group Visit Request Form at least three (3) weeks prior to the preferred visit date. The admissions staff will review the request and make a decision based upon schedule availability. We will make contact with our decision as soon as we are able.

Please note, due to the possibility of changes in campus operations, the University may suspend tours. If this affects your visit, you will be notified by email.

If you have any questions about group visits, please contact Janessa Dunn at 

We are delighted you will be visiting Wake Forest University! We look forward to seeing you!

Prior approval is required for all groups planning a formal visit to Wake Forest.

  • Students should be in grades 9-12
  • Submit request to visit no later than three weeks prior to the preferred date
