Ask Your Student to Check for Holds

Student Financial Services sent the email below to students who have holds on their accounts.  Please ask your student to check his/her account to ensure there are no unpaid balances or other holds that need to be cleared.


Dear Student,

Student Financial Services hopes you had a good winter break and we welcome you back to campus in the next few weeks.

You are receiving this email because your student account is past due. As a result, a registration hold has been placed on your student account. This hold is preventing you from registering for classes or requesting an official WFU transcript.  To view your student account, please log into DEAC (Deacon Electronic Account Center).

Your student account currently has a past due amount. The past due balance must be paid in order for the registration hold to be removed. Spring tuition and fees were due on December 1, 2013.

For your convenience, your payment can be made online through DEAC.  Other available payment methods  can be viewed on the SFS website.

If you have questions regarding your bill, payment or hold, please do not hesitate to come by our office located in Reynolda Hall, Room 107 or contact us at the contact information stated below.

Thank You,

Wake Forest University Student Financial Services

Message Regarding Off-Campus Break-ins

Communications and External Relations has sent the following message to the campus community.


Recent off-campus break-ins at students’ residences have prompted increased patrols by the Winston-Salem Police Department and extra attention by University Police to the area immediately adjacent to the University.

Electronic items—such as televisions, laptops and gaming systems—were stolen in the break-ins near the University.  One break-in occurred on Polo Road, between campus and Reynolda Road, while another occurred on Palm Drive, off University Parkway.  The incidents occurred Dec. 16 at privately owned houses rented to students off campus.

No one was home when the break-ins occurred.

Because the thefts occurred off campus, the Winston-Salem Police Department is investigating.  The University Police Department is assisting.

Anyone with information that might assist in the investigations is encouraged to contact the Winton-Salem Police Department at 336-773-7700.

Before winter break began, the University Police Department distributed crime prevention tips to off-campus students.  The department encourages students not to leave portable valuables—such as computers and other electronics—at off-campus houses during the winter break. Police also recommended that students record the model and serial number of valuables that would not be removed during break and record that information online at a website established by the department.  Police offered to assist students with locating identifying numbers, if needed.

Wake Forest to Name New Football Coach

The following message is sent on behalf of Ron Wellman, Director of Athletics, to students, faculty and staff:

Today we will introduce Dave Clawson as our new football coach.  Dave is a proven winner and leader and has had great success at every institution he has coached.  Dave has rebuilt every program that he has coached and has led each institution to a conference championship.  He has developed a national reputation as a builder of programs.

Dave has spent the last five years coaching at Bowling Green State University in Ohio.  Last Friday he guided the Falcons to the Mid-American Conference championship when his team beat No. 16 Northern Illinois.

Dave has also served as the head coach at Fordham and the University of Richmond, winning conference championships at both schools and earning numerous Coach of the Year Awards.  He was the national coach of the year at both Richmond and Fordham.

Dave’s expectations for our program and players are extremely high.  We have much to look forward to with his leadership of our program.

The University will hold a news conference this afternoon at 4:30 on the sixth floor of Deacon Tower followed by a question and answer session for our fans, students, Deacon Club members and members of the community at approximately 5 p.m., also on the sixth floor of Deacon Tower.  The question and answer session is open to the public.

We look forward to welcoming Dave, his wife Catherine, and their children Courtney and Eric, to Wake Forest University!

Go Deacs!
