Important Registration Information

Registration for Fall 2014 classes will be taking place the first week of April.  The Registrar’s web site on the registration process has a lot of important information for your students.  Please urge them to review this site BEFORE they begin the registration process to make sure they are aware of all activities and processes.

All students are advised to check their accounts for holds and be sure to remove the holds prior to registration.  Offices such as Finance & Accounting, ZSR, etc. will NOT be available to remove holds after 4 p.m, so students should be sure to clear holds early in the day.  Students must get the hold cleared by the department that placed the hold on their account.

The Registrar’s office will close at 5 p.m. during Registration Rounds, but staff members are available Monday – Thursday in the evenings to answer your questions using Google Chat. To contact the University Registrar’s staff between 5 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.  Please see the Registrar’s web site on the registration process for instructions on how to use the Google Chat option.

For students who have not yet declared a major, they must meet in person with their academic adviser to receive their PIN to register.  Students with declared majors and/or minors, including those currently abroad, will be advised and will be registered for classes within the major/minor department between March 17 – 28.   Each department governs advising and assignment of registration priorities and most registration procedures during Major/Minor Registration.

The Office of Academic Advising is always available as a resource to students.

A Message from President Hatch

The following message was sent this afternoon to the campus community from President Hatch.


Dear Wake Forest Community,

Yesterday, after the announcement that Jeff Bzdelik had resigned as Wake Forest’s head basketball coach, some members of our community took it upon themselves to roll the quad. Rolling the quad, as every Wake Forester knows, is a tradition celebrating competitive success.

Aaron Rountree III, a Wake Forest sophomore on the basketball team tweeted, “’Rolling The Quad’ should be reserved for glorifying the success of Wake Forest University, not for the disrespect of another human being.” I could not say it better.

Civility is a hallmark of our community and I am disappointed that yesterday’s misplaced passion did not accurately portray our values to the country. Dozens of people came out this afternoon to clean the quad and for that I am grateful.

Tests of Indoor Emergency Alert System Scheduled

The following message was sent to the campus community by Communications and External Relations.


Wake Forest will soon test an upgraded fire alarm system that will bring seven new voice messages to emergency speakers in halls and lobbies in 28 academic, administrative and residential buildings.

Anyone in those buildings March 10-12 (during Spring Break) likely will hear test messages announcing an active shooter, an armed intruder, a tornado or other threatening weather. Testing will also include shelter in place, building evacuation and all clear messages.

No action is required by anyone who hears the messages. If an actual emergency were to occur on those days, the test messages would not be used.

Additional information about the testing and upgraded alarm system is available on Inside WFU.
