Admission and Registration
A student or applicant who falls into one of these categories must reapply for admission:
Admission of Students with Three- Year Bachelor's Degrees
Admission to graduate school is normally predicated on completion of a four-year baccalaureate degree. Students seeking admission into graduate status at Wright State who have earned a three-year bachelor's degree may not be eligible to be admitted. In order to be eligible for admission, the students' three-year programs must be equivalent to and meet the standards of regionally accredited four-year degree programs in the United States. The determination of equivalency will be made by International Admissions in the University Center for International Education (UCIE) and/or the School of Graduate Studies. Students with three-year degrees that are not equivalent to regionally accredited four-year degrees may be eligible for admission if the students earned a master's degree prior to coming to Wright State or completed a minimum of 45 hours of additional course work. The 45 hours should consist of either general education courses or program-specific courses as determined by a graduate program or the School of Graduate Studies. Students may be required to take English 101 and 102 as part of or in addition to the 45 hours if it is determined by a program or the School of Graduate Studies that they have difficulty with the English language and/or have not met the requirements of freshman English. Students may be referred to the Department of English Language and Literatures for diagnostic testing for English deficiencies.
