At Wake Forest, we celebrate that a diversity of perspectives and experiences is necessary to be a whole and growing person. We invite you to participate in Pathways to Wake Forest, a program designed for historically underrepresented populations, including but not limited to Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American, and Asian American backgrounds, as well as first-generation students. For more information, please visit At Wake Forest, we learn from differences and seek to create paths to be an inclusive community connector.

Pathways will give you the opportunity to engage with our accessible faculty, fascinating classes, administrators, and the Office of Financial Aid. We also hope you’ll experience the greater Winston-Salem area on Saturday, September 22, by taking part in FIESTA, the street festival sponsored by Winston-Salem’s Hispanic League.

To apply for the Pathways program, students simply need to submit the following:
  • a Pathways to Wake Forest application
  • your report card/transcript (a copy, PDF, or screenshot)
  • (optional) letter of support (from a teacher, counselor, or community leader)
We will only consider complete applications; the deadline is September 14. We’ll notify students about decisions by September 17. If you’re not offered a spot to participate in this particular program, we still very much hope you’ll visit campus and engage in a personal interview or campus tour. Please note that admission to the Pathways program does not signify admission to Wake Forest University.

If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Thomas Ray, Assistant Dean, at or (336) 758-5203 or Ms. Karen Vargas, Associate Dean,at or (336) 758-4356.

We hope you will take this path to discover Wake Forest University.
