Parent's Guide

Parental Contracts

Students Treated as Adults
With few exceptions, Wright State students are at least 18 years of age. As such, they are considered adults by both law and practice. We work to create a living environment where students can grow and develop. Part of this maturation process involves "testing limits and boundaries." Our judicial process certainly takes this into account. However, an adult student is expected to be responsible for his or her actions.

Contract with the Student
The housing contract is signed by the resident. All policies and procedures outlined within it, the terms and conditions, and our Sourcebook apply to the student.

Governed by FERPA
Because Wright State is a state and federally funded institution, we must follow the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) which prohibits the Office of Residence Services from releasing any information—besides the most basic "directory" information—about the student without the student's permission. This applies to family members. Housing administrative staff will use their best judgment about discussing roommates, finances, complaints, or other problems without the student's permission. In the case of dire emergency, we may choose to speak to family members. We do know this is frustrating—it is for us too—but we have very little "wiggle room" on this law.
