Early Decision Admissions and Financial Aid
Because of the binding commitment that early decision entails, it is important that you have considered your options carefully. If your college enrollment is dependent on financial assistance, we believe that it is important for you to have the opportunity to compare aid packages in the spring from a number of schools rather than committing yourself now through an early binding agreement. Our aid decisions, both need-based and merit, are made in April.
For those planning to apply for financial aid or whose enrollment is contingent on merit based aid, or for those who have misunderstood the binding nature of our early decision policy, we strongly encourage you to move your application from Early Decision to Regular Decision by contacting the Office of Undergraduate Admissions by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 336.758.5201. Your admission to Wake Forest and your consideration for need-based or merit based scholarships will not be adversely affected by a withdrawal from Early Decision.
