Study Abroad/Away

Undergraduate Wake Forest students can choose to participate in University-sponsored study abroad/away programs or affiliate programs through other institutions. Students can request that their financial aid packages “travel” with them for fall and spring semesters abroad. The Center for Global Programs and Studies guides students through this process.


Wake Forest Programs

Undergraduate students are charged current undergraduate tuition and housing for University-sponsored study abroad /away programs. Tuition is due based on standard due dates.

Some summer study abroad /away programs require a non-refundable deposit. The program director may also require additional deposits or fees. Contact the Center for Global Programs and Studies for information. IMPORTANT: If a student does not participate in the study abroad/away  program, the deposit is forfeited and cannot be used toward Reynolda Campus tuition and fees.

Affiliate Programs

Affiliate programs are Wake Forest-approved study abroad/away programs offered through program providers or other universities. Starting with the Fall 22 semester, students who study in an affiliate program (semester or summer) will be charged Wake Forest tuition and any associated program deposits. The affiliate program will bill students directly for housing, meals, and other fees.  Students are responsible for ensuring that payment is made to the affiliate institution. 


Students’ Financial Responsibility

Students are responsible for all charges posted on their student accounts. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure that all charges are paid in full by the due date, before leaving to attend their Wake Forest or approved Affiliate study abroad/away program.
