Innovation is a fundamental element of the Wright State experience.
We are happy to partner with students who have had a home schooled education. A home school background provides higher education institutions with students who are innovators and pioneers in the education frontier.
We are now accepting applications for Summer 2018 and Fall 2018. We will begin making admission decisions for those semesters in August.
Home schooled students should submit the following to complete the application process:
- Application for Undergraduate Admission
- $30.00 application fee
- Official ACT/SAT scores
- Official home school transcript, including any work in progress (a final transcript with graduation date posted upon completion of courses)
- Copy of written verification from the district superintendent that the student has been excused from compulsory attendance for the student’s final year of home education
- Other documents upon request (which may include course content descriptions, book lists, or other related documentation)
Note: Home schooled students who have earned credit for college courses through Ohio’s College Credit Plus, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, or a dual enrollment program, must submit official transcripts after the completion of these courses. Students in their final year of high school level courses do not need to submit college transcripts for Wright State to make an admission decision.

Attention male students: A law passed by the Ohio Assembly requires state universities to charge nonresident fees to male (Ohio) students who have not registered with the Selective Service. In addition, Selective Service registration is linked to many federal and state benefits, including eligibility for federal student loans and grants.
Federal law requires virtually all men to register with Selective Service within 30 days of turning 18. Males who have not registered with the Selective Service may register online at the Selective Service System Website or go to any U.S. Post Office.
If you have registered but have lost your Selective Service number, call the Selective Service System at (708) 688-6888 between 8:30 a.m. and 6:45 p.m., Monday through Friday, and a duplicate card will be sent within 10 days. For additional information, please visit the Selective Service System Web site.
Wright State University does not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, sex (including gender identity/expression), color, religion, ancestry, national origin, age, disability, genetic (DNA) information, veteran status, military status, or sexual orientation. We take affirmative action to recruit and assist members of various racial or ethnic groups, women, Vietnam-era veterans, and persons with disabilities whose ability to achieve academic success might otherwise be unrecognized because of cultural barriers. Our policy is consistent with the various federal and Ohio statutes that prohibit discrimination.
