Incoming freshmen students are required to meet with an academic advisor.

Academic and Instructional Services
The Office of Academic and Instructional Services (AIS) provides opportunities for both students and faculty to ensure their success in their academic endeavors.
For students at all levels of academic proficiency, such opportunities include tutoring, study sessions, and independent/individualized instruction in conjunction with another department and/or through AIS itself. These services are available to any WSU-LC student. Computer software packages and audiovisual materials facilitate basic skill improvement as well as accelerated progress in certain subjects or skills. In addition, AIS personnel assist students with disabilities in the realization of their potential by providing such supplemental services as extended testing arrangements, test proctoring, counseling, tutoring, and taped textbooks. Finally, AIS outreach programs address unique needs of special populations, e.g., Adults Supporting Adults Project (ASAP).
For both full-time and adjunct faculty, AIS focuses on instructional practices and academic policies and procedures, as well as providing opportunities to become acquainted with the teaching experience of other colleagues at Wright State University-Lake Campus. An ongoing scholarly lecture series benefits both faculty and students by providing opportunities for educational exchanges that would otherwise be difficult to access in the rural locale in which the Lake Campus is located. Through such educational activities, AIS will enhance the faculty's exposure to different ways of teaching the skills needed by students in today's world.
