Financial Aid Appeal Process
The Office of Student Financial Aid makes every attempt to
award students the maximum aid for which they are eligible based
on financial aid policies and available resources. We do not
match financial aid awards from other institutions or use other
awards as a basis for adjusting the Wake Forest award. If there
have been changes in the family's financial situation, or if
there are special circumstances which should be taken into consideration,
send a written appeal to the Office of Student Financial Aid.
For returning students, we make every effort to maintain the
aid offered during freshman year. Students, however, must reapply
for aid each year by submitting the Renewal FAFSA, CSS PROFILE,
and copies of student and parental W-2 wage statements and income
tax forms. Any revisions in aid to returning students will be
based on carefully documented changes in family circumstances.
If you wish to appeal a decision, send a written appeal to the
Office of Student Financial Aid.
All appeals should be addressed to
the Committee on Scholarships and Student Aid, Office of Student
Financial Aid, Wake Forest University, PO Box 7246, Winston-Salem,
NC 27109-7246. The Committee responds to all correspondence
within a reasonable period of time (generally within two weeks
of receipt, unless substantial documentation is required.)
