Lots to do this month!
Please consider joining us for a New Student Reception. Two virtual receptions will be offered on June 22 and July 14. These programs are not geographically-specific and will provide a glimpse into life at Wake Forest, some top tips for transitioning to college, registering for classes, approaching residential living, and Q&A with a panel of current students. We hope that every incoming family will join us at one of the virtual options and that you’ll also register for a local Reception should one be offered in your area. Details, dates, and registration can be found here.
Pro tip for June:
If your student has a documented disability and used accommodations in high school, be sure to complete the Request for Consideration form. Some students want to try college without those accommodations and later discover they wished they’d had the accommodation from the beginning.
Due dates and deadlines for parents and families
Look for New Student Receptions in your area and/or the virtual options (June 22 and July 14) and register. We anticipate that receptions will be added throughout the summer, so check back periodically.
Submit your Family Record Form if you had not already done so.
June 7: Talk to your student about authorizing you as a third-party payer on their DEAC account – this will allow you to have access to financial statements and bills.
At your convenience:
Review the Advice for New Families page
Important reminder about the calendar – Use a pencil, not a pen.
As we move through the next few months, you may see changes to dates and events due to the University’s response to COVID-19. When making travel plans, please remain flexible and be aware of hotel/airline change policies. Keep visiting the New Students website regularly for the most updated information.
