Registering for Classes
Register online through Wings Express (wingsexpress.wright.edu) or in person at the Office of the Registrar (E244 Student Union). Before your initial registration, you should meet with your academic advisor. After that, you should consult your degree audit (DARS) quarterly and meet with an advisor at least once a year.
Students with a cumulative grade point average below 2.0 are on academic probation and will have a PIN blocking their registration; therefore, they must meet with an advisor before registering.
Paying the Bill
Scholarships, loans, grants and college work study are awarded through the office of Financial Aid (E136 Student Union, 937-775-5721), located on the first floor of the Student Union.
Students may pay their bills online through Wings Express or in person at the Office of the Bursar (E236 Student Union, 937-775-5650). Paper bills are not mailed so students must view their account online. Students who register during Early Registration will be backed out of classes if they do not pay their fees on time; students who register during Open Registration will not be backed out for non-payment.
If you do not plan to attend classes, you must officially withdraw on Wings Express or at the Registrar’s office.
For information about fee due dates, refunds, and the installment payment plan, please go to Bursar’s web site at http://www.wright.edu/bursar/.
Once students register, they should procure a Wright1Card in the Photo ID Center in E234 Student Union. Students must take a copy of your schedule and another photo ID to receive your Wright1Card.
