How to Apply for FREE

To complete the Wright State application process you must:



Complete and submit the free admission application.



    How to submit the required documentation


    • 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 credits to your Wright State record.
    • You may be eligible to send unofficial transcripts for a one-term provisional admissions decision if your GPA is currently above a 2.00, you have not been academically suspended or dismissed from an institution, or are not petitioning for admission. Transfer credits do not post from unofficial transcripts. Official transcripts are required prior to being able to register for a second term.

    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
