Every incoming first-year or transfer student will be assigned a lower-division adviser (a faculty or staff member), along with student adviser. Student advisers are continuing students who have been successful throughout their first year(s) of college and wish to share their knowledge with incoming students. Incoming students will receive support and outreach from their lower-division and student advisers within the first semester to ensure that they are adjusting to campus life at Wake Forest.
Once a student declares a major, s/he will be assigned to an academic adviser within that department.
Students must meet with their advisers each semester to discuss the current term, future course selection, and obtain their PIN for registration. We encourage all students to meet with their assigned advisers throughout the year for academic advice or concerns and for everyday guidance in navigating college.
