Student Financial Services manages all Wake Forest student accounts including tuition, housing and other University-related fees. We’re here to help you in any way we can, and we welcome all questions you may have.
Please visit our website for more information on Tuition & Fees, Billing, DEAC, Deacon OneCard, student account refunds, Dewar Tuition Insurance, and other student financial information.
This electronic billing system allows students and authorized payers to view student account activity in real time, 24/7. Payments are made via e-check through an authorized clearinghouse. DEAC accounts are automatically set up for all incoming students. Students access their DEAC accounts by logging into WIN > InfoCentral > DEAC. There is also a text message capability.
Student Financial Services does not set up accounts for parents or other third parties. Due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), students must authorize parents or other third-party payers to have access to their accounts.
Adjustments to charges, prepayments, financial aid disbursements, and over payments often result in credit balances on student accounts. A credit balance is indicated on the student account statement by parentheses surrounding the balance. Students can elect to receive their student account refund via direct deposit. Please visit our website for further information regarding sign-up and the refund process.
An unexpected withdrawal due to sickness or injury can mean significant financial consequences for families. Wake Forest offers an elective tuition insurance program through A.W.G. Dewar, Inc., that will help minimize financial loss if a student suffers a serious illness or accident and must withdraw before the end of a semester. This plan extends and enhances the University’s published refund policy. In cases of withdrawal due to accident, illness or mental health conditions as defined in the plan, the program assures up to a 75% refund throughout the term. The last day to purchase this plan is the day before the first day of classes. This plan must be renewed each semester. Please see our website for further details.
Each year by January 31, Wake Forest University makes available via WIN (student must give online consent) or mails an IRS Form 1098-T to all students who had qualified tuition and other related educational expenses billed to them during the previous calendar year. Please visit WIN/Personal/1098-T Electronic Consent to grant online consent.
In order for the student to view the form electronically, they must grant consent via WIN by completing the below three easy steps. This consent is only available via the student WIN login. After consent is granted by the student, all future and past 1098-T forms will be available to view via the student WIN login until they separate from the University.
Advantages to viewing the 1098T electronically are quicker access to see the tax form and the ability to access prior year’s forms. If the student does not provide consent, Wake Forest University is required to mail them the 1098-T form to the address on file with the Registrar’s Office but we are encouraging all students to take advantage of the new electronic access.
Step 1: Log into WIN and navigate to the “Personal” tab
Step 2: Click on the “1098-T Electronic Consent” Link
Step 3: Read the consent and click the check box and press the “Submit” button.
