Tuition Insurance Program

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 suers 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. 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.

Student Account Refunds

Adjustments to charges, prepayments, financial aid disbursements and overpayments 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 refunds via direct deposit. Please visit our website for further information regarding sign-up and the refund process.

Tax Form 1098-T

Each year by January 31, Wake Forest makes available via WIN (for students who have granted consent) or mails an IRS Form 1098-T to all students who had qualified tuition and other related expenses billed to them during the previous calendar year. Students, please visit WIN>Personal>1098-T Electronic Consent to grant online consent.

The Deacon Electronic Account Center (DEAC)

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 automated clearinghouse. DEAC accounts are automatically set up for all incoming students but are not automatically set up for parents or other third parties due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Students must authorize parents and others to have access to their accounts. If a student does not set up their parents or others as a authorized payers, only the student will receive the billing notifications, as all bills are viewable online only via the DEAC system. If a student chooses not to have any authorized payers, he/she will need to be sure to check WFU email for billing notifications. Failure to meet a payment deadline could result in a financial hold, which will prevent the student from registering for classes. Being an authorized payer within DEAC also gives SFS employees permission to speak with that individual regarding the student account.

Students access their DEAC accounts by logging into WIN>Personal>DEAC. DEAC has mobile and text message capabilities, making it easier and more convenient to view accounts via mobile devices and receive billing notifications via text message. Please visit finance.wfu.edu/sfs/deac for helpful information regarding DEAC, including setting up authorized payers, text message authorization and making online payments.
