Academic advising is the key to your success at WSU - Lake Campus! Students are strongly encouraged to meet with their academic advisor on a regular basis.
Academic advising at the WSU-Lake Campus is done by some academic departments
and by advisors in the Student Services Office. Academic advisors in the Student
Services Office are members of NACADA (National Academic Advising Association).
Students should see an academic advisor regarding their selection of a degree
program, as well as to plan course work for each quarter. Some majors require
a student to have their PIN removed before they can register for classes,
and other students may register on-line by using WINGS EXPRESS.
Wright State is changing from quarters to semesters in Fall 2012. Students who complete their degrees before the switch occurs will not have to adjust to a new academic calendar or transition to a semester curriculum. We recommend that you consult your advisor now to determine whether you can complete your degree requirements and graduate prior to the conversion to semesters. Learn more at www.wright.edu/semesters.
DARS is an acronym for a program called the Degree Audit Reporting System. DARS helps students and advisors analyze the degree requirements for a student's major based on the catalog year in which the student enrolled at Wright State University. DARS is a useful tool for students to navigate through their degree progress. The new interactive Audit offers interactive graphs, charts, and a course cart feature. The Interactive Audit also includes links to course descriptions for remaining courses. The course cart allows you to add planned courses to your degree audit and can aid in degree completion planning.
IMPORTANT: Always talk to your advisor when you aren't sure about your DARS audit (or transfer course equivalencies)!

Have you tried to register for classes and found you have an Alt-Pin on your account? There may be several reasons why. You must meet with an advisor before your Alt-Pin can be removed.
You are encouraged to make an advising appointment when the next academic schedule is available. This way you can meet with your advisor before you are able to register for classes! The Lake Campus advisors are located in Student Services (170 Dwyer Hall). Please call 419-586-0300 to make an academic advising appointment.
