Paying Fall Tuition Deposit

The Office of Student Financial Services has requested that this information be shared with parents of currently-enrolled students.


Introducing the new, convenient and faster method for paying your Fall Tuition Deposit via DEAC!

This email was sent to your student at their WFU email address.  This now replaces the paper notification sent in previous years.  

Returning Undergraduate Student Tuition Deposit

A $500 non-refundable tuition deposit is required of all undergraduate students who plan to enroll for the fall semester.

The due date of the fall tuition deposit is March 15th.

For students on Reynolda Campus and Wake Forest Study Abroad programs: The deposit is applied towards the student’s fall tuition charges.

For students in affiliate study abroad programs: The deposit is applied toward the student’s fall study abroad enrollment fee.

This deposit is not a room payment or room deposit.

Students are reminded that payment of the tuition deposit does not entitle them to registration if they have an outstanding balance with the University.

This tuition deposit is non-refundable.

Payment must be made by the above due date or you will be required to apply for reinstatement to The Committee on Academic Affairs.

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem.  The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
