The program will formally begin at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 13, in the Porter Byrum Welcome Center/Office of Undergraduate Admissions at Wake Forest University.

We’ll consider only completed applications, the deadline for which is June 5. Students will then hear back from us on a rolling basis – and no later than June 7. Please note that participation in Mini-Camp College does not signify admission to Wake Forest University.

If students are not offered a spot, we, of course, still very much hope they’ll visit us for a campus tour and/or one-on-one interview.
