Estimated Tuition and Financial Aid

Tuition Information

  • $1000 per credit hour 

This covers all WFU charges related to study in the program (except for books, if any), but does not include housing, airfare, meals, or other incidental expenses.

Summer tuition is due June 1. Students utilizing financial aid will have their aid disbursed to the student account no earlier than 10 days prior to the start of the program. Financial aid that has been accepted by the student will appear as a pending credit on the bill until it is disbursed. Students do not need to submit payment for the portion of the bill that is covered by financial aid while waiting for the funding to disburse.

Financial Aid Information

Students may be eligible for federal or private student loans for the summer study abroad program. Students who borrowed the annual maximum of $20,500 in the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan during the preceding fall and spring semesters will have their federal student loan eligibility limited to the Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan which requires a credit check.

Wake Forest Law institutional scholarships do not apply to summer courses or study abroad programs.

If you have any questions or would like to apply for financial aid, please contact the Wake Forest Law Financial Aid Office as soon as possible.

Payment Information for Wake Forest Students

Wake Forest students can pay their tuition two different ways:

Submit a check payable to “Wake Forest University” at the University Cashier’s Office/Student Financial Services Office, located in Reynolda Hall.

Pay online through the Deacon Electronic Account Center (DEAC), which is the online WFU electronic billing system. Students and authorized payers can view student account activity and pay by e-check.

Changes in Course Offerings

From time to time, it has been necessary to change the course offerings in our summer programs. If this happens or there are other significant changes to a program in which you are enrolled, we will give you a chance to withdraw from the program and receive a refund of any deposit, tuition or housing fee you have paid. This happens rarely.

Cancellations and Refunds

We have never canceled a summer program, but if we must because of limited enrollment or travel or other safety concerns, we will advise you by e-mail or telephone, and we will fully refund your deposit and tuition, as well as any housing fees, you have paid.

If we must cancel a program, we will use our best efforts to make arrangements for each student enrolled to attend a similar program, if the student desires.
