Enrollment Processing & Financial Aid
The Office of Enrollment Processing & Financial Aid manages the undergraduate admissions process and administers all federal, state, and institutional financial aid programs for students enrolled at Wright State University. We are also responsible for scholarships, financial literacy, consortium agreements, study abroad, and default management programs. We process over 12,000 applications per year, and send over a quarter of a million communication pieces to prospective students per year. The Office of Enrollment Processing & Financial Aid also assists Raider Connect with any student related issues, and works with the Raider Connect staff to ensure that the staff has the most up to date training required to assist students with all of their financial aid needs.
During Orientation, students learn about course selection, academic advising, student services, and student life. They have an opportunity to choose a learning community, register for fall semester classes, receive important computer account information, connect with current and incoming Wright State students and receive their Wright1 student ID card. We encourage their families to come along as we introduce the class of 2019 into the Wright State community. Welcome to the pack!
