Introduction to Distance Learning
The first step to becoming a Distance Learning student is to complete an application. Our application can be completed fully online. To begin this application, click here. If you live at least 120 miles from Wake Forest, be sure to identify yourself as an online student on your application.
The approval process can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks. Once you have been accepted, you will receive an email with instructions about registering for New Student Orientation. Once you have completed the Orientation, our IT office will send your student ID number and you will be able to register for classes.
Our Distance Learning students are able to register online for classes approximately 30 days before on-campus students are able to register for online and hybrid classes.
