Admissions and Advising

B.A. and B.S. Programs
To enter a B.A. or B.S. program in the College of Liberal Arts, students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of at least a 2.0 and a minimum of 24 credit hours completed, including ENG 101 and 102 (with a grade of C or better in both), plus three other General Education courses from Areas II, III, or IV.

In addition, students must be accepted into a major program. Some programs have additional, more stringent admission requirements.

B.F.A. Programs
Students may enter the college's B.F.A. programs with a minimum of 24 credit hours. In addition to general university requirements, many of these programs also require auditions, interviews, or portfolio reviews.

B.M. Programs
Students enter the college's B.M. program as freshmen and must successfully complete an audition in a major performance area.

Returning Students

Students who return to Wright State after an absence of four or more quarters must reapply for admission and satisfy the admission requirements listed above. Students who return after eight or more quarters' absence will have to complete the program requirements that are in effect when they are readmitted to the college.


Students majoring in liberal arts degree programs receive advising from the Liberal Arts Office of Academic Affairs and from a major advisor. The Liberal Arts Office of Academic Affairs is responsible for university and college requirements; the major advisor is responsible for program requirements. The Liberal Arts Office of Academic Affairs reviews and approves degree audits, which chart a student's progress toward the bachelor's degree. Students should consult their major advisor frequently, but especially when they enter a program and when they achieve senior status.
