Steps to Enroll

Wake Forest University in the spring

Secure your seat.

Students admitted for the Fall 2023 semester must submit their $1,500 tuition deposit on or before May 1, 2023.

Reserve your housing.

All first-year students are required to live on campus. To apply, submit your housing application using your ‘’ credentials beginning in early May.

The application deadline is June 5 to be eligible for on-campus housing.

Check your email often.

Check your WFU email regularly for important information sent from the Office of Academic Advising and Orientation that will contain information about important dates and deadlines, details about pre-orientation programs, orientation, and registration, just to name a few.

Send your immunization records.

Please submit your completed health history and immunizations form by accessing your Student Health Portal with your WFU email and password. Click on “My Forms” and complete the forms listed. Once your health information and immunization documentation has been uploaded to the Student Health Portal, our clinical staff will check and verify your documentation. If there are any questions, we will contact you.


Now that you are on your way to becoming a Demon Deacon, we want to make sure you are aware of the university’s vaccination policies for all students taking in-person courses. You must complete this paperwork prior to registering for your courses. 

Incoming students are required to provide documentation of the following vaccinations in the Student Health Portal.

  • NC state-mandated immunizations (such as measles, mumps; see full list);

We also strongly recommend that incoming students obtain these additional vaccines, which help us maintain health and safety in our close campus community.

  • COVID-19 vaccines, including booster, as eligible, with an FDA-approved vaccine; and 
  • Influenza vaccine after August 1 for the following academic year

Students may submit a request for a medical or religious exemption for required immunizations. 

International Students: The University will assist student efforts to receive required immunizations after arrival in the United States if they have been unable to receive the required vaccines in their country of residence or have received a vaccine not authorized by the FDA.

Please visit the Student Health Service website to learn more.

Get ready for Orientation.

New first-year and transfer students will participate in New Deac Orientation in August! The New Student website for the Class of 2027 will become available during the first week of May.

More information regarding Pre-Orientation/Orientation specifics will be sent to your WFU email throughout the summer.
