Transfer Students

Transferring to the Forest badge


Academic counselors from the Office of Academic Advising will contact transfer students via their Wake Forest email to schedule a time to assist with fall registration. This heavily depends on transfer students’ timely submission of transfer credit requests through the transfer credit portal and their subsequent approvals. Although transfer students should familiarize themselves with the registration portal, they will not need to participate in self-registration during the summer, rather they should work closely with their assigned academic counselor.

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.
