Transcripts

    How to submit the required documentation

    Submit

    • Transcripts from each regionally accredited college or university previously attended
    • High school transcripts if you are one of the following:
      • A high school graduate from 1986 or before transferring with fewer than nine semester hours
      • A high school graduate from 1987 or after transferring with fewer than 30 semester hours

    Submit your transcript as early as possible. Your options are:

    • Submit an official transcript even if your current semester courses are not listed. This allows us to begin posting your credits to your Wright State record.
    • Submit an unofficial transcript to be considered for admission. Credits will not be posted to your record until we receive your official transcript.

    How to submit the required documentation

    • Online: Many academic institutions will send official transcripts electronically through a secure server. We will accept these transcripts from the academic institution. If an email address is required, they can be sent to admissions@wright.edu
    • By mail:
      • Wright State University
        Office of Undergraduate Admissions

    Lake Campus Students

    Students receiving an associate degree from Wright State

    Lake Campus students who receive an associate degree from Wright State and want to continue taking classes or earn a bachelor’s degree from Wright State will need to reapply at wright.edu/apply. You will only need to attach transcripts from other institutions attended, not Wright State.

    Students wanting to take courses at both Dayton and Lake campuses

    You will register for these courses through WingsExpress as you would for any Wright State course. Admitted/currently enrolled students may take courses at either campus (or both). There may be a campus-based cost difference for some courses. Contact RaiderConnect for information and options on potential scholarships that can offset the cost.

    Students wanting to take all courses at the Dayton Campus

    • Meet with your Lake Campus academic advisor and let them know you want to begin taking all courses at the Dayton Campus.
      • They will connect you with their advising counterpart at the Dayton Campus and assist you in changing your campus designation and/or major in WingsExpress.
      • Meet with your Dayton Campus academic advisor
    • Contact RaiderConnect to discuss financing your education, scholarships, and your bill. Recipients of campus-specific scholarships or grants may find those items impacted by campus location.
    • You will need to apply for housing to live on the Dayton Campus.
    • You will need to purchase a Dayton Campus parking permit from Parking and Transportation. Select Visit my Parking Account.
    • You are welcome to attend an orientation program to become acclimated to the Dayton Campus. To attend a Dayton Campus orientation, email orientation@wright.edu and use "Dayton Campus Orientation for Lake Campus Student" in the subject line.
    • Check out all the Dayton Campus has to offer, including
    • Your Wright1 card will work at the Dayton Campus.
