This July, the Project WakeDay team will move student financials activities into Workday, including billing, financial aid disbursements and more. Before that time, students are encouraged to grant Third Party Access in Workday and then take the next step to allow specific permissions to their friends and family. This is highly recommended as it allows them to receive notifications of tuition bills and other payments due.

Some students have granted Third Party Access, but they have not granted access to specific functions, including Make a Payment and more. Please check that you have completed this step.

Step-by-step instructions for adding third parties and allowing permissions are available at this link, and you can watch this video for an overview of Student Financials activities in Workday.

Friends and Family who would like to learn more about navigating Workday are invited to an upcoming presentation on Zoom. They can register using the following link:

The following step-by-step guides are also available:

Thank you for visiting the student page of the Project WakeDay training section. This page offers a variety of links to get you started in Workday, as well as a comprehensive library of on-demand videos and job aids. You can also check out this FAQ of common student questions.

As you log in for the first time, be sure to check your My Task “inbox” for important to-do items that must be completed before registration opens. 

If you are a new student who begins at WFU in Fall 2024, you will have access to Workday approximately 48 hours after Wake Forest receives your deposit or you formally commit to attend WFU. Once you receive your Wake Forest email address, you will be able to sign in using that email. Watch for communications about your next steps.

Please note that your WFU login credentials may be required to watch videos.
