High School Preparation

Wright State has adopted a college preparatory curriculum policy. The university requires applicants to have a high school record that meets the recommendations of the Advisory Commission on Articulation between Secondary Education and Ohio Colleges. Students who do not meet the high school course requirements may be admitted to the university with conditions and will be required to remove deficiencies before they can graduate from Wright State University.

The following table summarizes the college preparatory course requirements and indicates how deficiencies may be removed.
