Admissions and Advising

All students who are interested in a degree in business should apply to Wright State University's Office of Undergraduate Admissions. When applying, students should indicate their preferred major within the college, if known. Business majors are required to complete the program of study in effect at the time of their admission to the Raj Soin College of Business. Specific requirements for admission to the college follow.

Admission From University College and Other WSU Colleges

The college has a two-tier admission process. Students in University College or another unit of Wright State must meet the following Tier I requirements to transfer to the Raj Soin College of Business:

Tier I
  1. 45 hours earned
  2. Completion of ENG 101 and 102, English Composition; and either MTH 128 or 129, College Algebra (or higher-level math class), all with a letter grade of C or better
  3. 2.5 minimum cumulative GPA
    Students who meet the above requirements will be assigned to a prebusiness category and will be required to meet the following Tier II requirements before they can enroll in junior- or senior-level classes.
Tier II

Completion of the following classes:
ACC 204, 205 Accounting Principles I & II
EC 204, 205 Micro & Macro Economics
MS 204 Intro to Probability & Statistics
MS 205 Quantitative Business Modeling
CS 205 Computer Literacy
MTH 228 Calculus for the Management, Life and Social Sciences

Transfer and Returning Students

Transfer students seeking admission to the Raj Soin College of Business must satisfy the same criteria stated for Wright State students. Acceptable transfer credit will satisfy any of the above requirements.

Students who return to Wright State University after being absent for four or more quarters must reapply for admission and satisfy the same admission requirements listed above for Wright State students. These students will be required to complete the program requirements that are in effect at the time of their readmission to the college.

Enrollment in 300-level or 400-level business classes is restricted to business majors who have completed Tier II and attained junior standing. This is to ensure that students have the appropriate prerequisites and an adequate foundation for their professional course work in business.

In the quarter that they register for their last Tier II requirements, students will be automatically transferred from a prebusiness to a business major number, permitting enrollment in 300-level business classes. If a student finds that this has not happened, and he or she cannot register for 300-level business classes, the student should contact the advising office immediately.

Advising

Program advisors are available in 110 Rike Hall to help students plan their program of study. Students who have been admitted to the Raj Roin College of Business may access their Degree Audit Report on Wings Express for a list of their General Education and major degree requirements. Signatures are not required for registration, but students are encouraged to see an advisor at least once a year to be sure they are on schedule for their projected graduation date. Advisors may also provide help with procedural or academic problems.

Students will also be assigned a faculty advisor based on their major. Faculty advisors can discuss career opportunities and career planning, recommend major and business electives, and discuss the curriculum of the student's major field.

If a student's cumulative GPA falls below the 2.0 required for graduation, the student will be placed on probation. If a student's cumulative GPA remains below 2.0 for three consecutive quarters, the student is subject to dismissal. Students on probation are required to meet with an advisor each quarter before registering, and are limited to 12 credit hours while on probation.
