Use a pencil, not a pen.
As you explore this website and view the following calendar, you’ll notice that the summer before you start classes and your first weeks in the Forest have lots of “key dates” and deadlines.
We have taken a great deal of care to plan a smooth introduction to Wake Forest for the Class of 2026, but we expect that there may be institutional changes that could impact the New Student calendar.
The dates in Forestry 101 were accurate at the time this information was published, but if plans change throughout the summer, then details, dates and deadlines will shift as well. It’s important that you check back here often and check your WFU email for the most updated information.

|Early June||NEW STUDENT RECEPTIONS|
From early June to early August, receptions for new students and their families will be held across the country. The 2022 New Student Receptions will be offered virtually and also in person in selected local areas. We hope that every incoming family will join us at one of the virtual options (June 22 or July 20), and that you’ll also register for a local reception should one be offered in your area.
Registration is required so we can have an accurate count of attendees.

Fall in the Forest
New students cannot learn everything about what it takes to have a successful college experience in a few days before the semester even starts. Therefore, new student orientation programming continues through the fall. In this way, you can continue to learn while you are experiencing what it is actually like to be a student at Wake Forest.
Your To-Do List
- Complete Part 2 of the Alcohol and Other Substance Misuse Prevention Online Course (AlcoholEdu for College: Primary) (Available 45 days after completion of Part 1. Deadline is October 25th.) This will be sent to your WFU email.
- Complete Part 2 of the Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Course (Available 45 days after completion of Part 1. Deadline is October 25th.) This will be sent to your WFU email.
