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

College Algebra (or higher-level math class), all with a letter grade of C or better
- 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

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.
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

career opportunities and career planning, recommend major and business electives, and discuss the

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.
