We're Helping Keep College Affordable

We already have one of the lowest tuition rates in the state. And we want to make sure it stays that way with our Wright Guarantee Tuition program. We'll lock in the price of undergraduate in-state tuition, housing, and dining for four years.

Celebrating 50 Years

In 1967, when enrollment reached 5,704 students, the Dayton Campus of Miami University and Ohio State University ceased to exist, and the newly independent Wright State University came into being. Join us throughout 2017–18 as we celebrate our history and look forward to the future.

We See the Potential in You

The Wright brothers were not pilots. They were dreamers and inventors. Through their persistence they taught the world to fly. Named after these pioneers, we carry on their desire to build, create, and pioneer. What does it mean to be a pioneer? Find out here.
