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

  1. completing at least 45 quarter credits of college-level work,
  2. 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 courses,
  3. 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.
