Undergraduate Business School

The Undergraduate Business School provides information about the various business majors and the application process.

Office of Academic Advising

The Pre-Professional Advising website discusses the recommended courses for students interested in careers in health or allied health, engineering, applying to the undergraduate business school, or students considering law or graduate school.


P’25s, this is your year! The Commencement website will share details about Wake Forest’s Commencement exercises, family and guest information, and more. Commencement details are typically available mid-spring.

If you have a concern about a student

If you have a particular concern about a student (your student, or their friend, roommate, etc.)  and want assistance in supporting your student or directing them to resources on campus, contact any of the following offices:

  • Emergency Response/24-7 (year-round)
    • University Police – 336.758.5911 for the kinds of emergencies where you would normally call 911 (e.g., immediate life and safety concerns)
  • Non-emergency Response for mental health
    • 336-758-CARE (2273) is a service that ensures someone will always be available (i.e., 24/7 M-F, weekends and university holidays) to provide caring and thoughtful consultation services for Wake Forest students in need of mental health assistance or support
