Pay Your Seat Deposit

A $500 non-refundable admissions deposit is required to hold your place in the class. These funds will be applied to your first semester’s tuition bill if you matriculate into the program. Your deposit must be received in the Admissions Office by the commitment date specified in your acceptance letter. (Visiting International Researchers and Exchange Students may not be required to pay a deposit. Please review your admissions letter for your requirement.)

To pay your seat deposit, please follow the instructions at this link:

Admission deposit payments may be paid by e-check from a U.S. bank account or sent via Flywire from an international bank account.  Flywire is highly recommended and is Wake Forest University’s preferred method of payment for international students.  There are no additional wire transfer fees using Flywire, and Flywire allows both the student and Wake Forest to track payments through the transfer process.

To ensure receipt, please notify the Office of Admissions that the seat deposit payment has been made by sending an email to with the confirmation. When forwarding the confirmation of payment, please include both your full name and the program you will be joining.
