Welcome to Wake Forest University

Congratulations on your decision to attend Wake Forest! We trust that you will find Wake Forest to be a very welcoming place, and we sincerely hope that your transition to life in the U.S. will be as smooth and painless as possible.

To assist you with the transition process, the Center for Global Programs and Studies (formerly known as the Center for International Studies or CIS) has created the following web pages to help you with your transition to life in Winston-Salem and at Wake Forest.

If you have further questions about your non-immigrant status, visa issues, housing, etc., please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Center for Global Programs and Studies staff. We look forward to meeting you when you arrive on campus, and that the time you spend at Wake Forest will be both enjoyable and academically profitable.
