Admission and Advising
All students interested in earning a degree through the college should apply to Wright State
University through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. When applying, students should
indicate their preferred major within the college, if known.
New students are usually assigned to the University College for academic
advising. Admission to a degree program in the college is subject to the student's
- completing at least 45 quarter credits of college-level work,
- attaining a cumulative GPA of at least 2.25. Computer science students must
attain a cumulative GPA of 2.25 in all computer science and computer engineering
- completing required core courses in English composition, mathematics, computer
programming, and chemistry or physics with a grade of "C" or better in each course.
Students are required to complete the program of study in effect at the time of their admission to the
college. When they are admitted to a degree program in the college, students are assigned an academic
advisor in the appropriate department. Students should consult with their advisor when first planning
their program of study and then at least once a year thereafter to be sure they are following a logical
schedule toward graduation.
Transfer students seeking admission to a degree program must have transfer credit equivalent to the
first year requirements for the program and must meet the requirements listed previously. Transfer
students who do not meet these requirements will be assigned to the University College or to
a preengineering or precomputer science program for academic advising.
Students who return to Wright State University after being absent for four or more
quarters must reapply for admission and satisfy the admission requirements listed above for new Wright
State students. These returning students may be required to complete the program requirements in
effect at the time of their readmission to the college. Their academic records will be reviewed
by an advisor who will decide where they will be assigned for academic advising.
