Orientation is an introduction to life and learning at Wright State University. Pre-registration is required. Here's the info you need to know BEFORE registering for the event.
Orientation is required
All students under the age 23 who have never attended college are required to attend Orientation. If you have 24 or more credit hours, please contact Student Services at 419-586-0300 to make an appointment with an academic advisor.
Don't forget your placements tests
You must have completed your English (online) placement tests AT LEAST 14 business days before your Orientation date. Math placement will be scheduled at orientation. This must be completed in order to register for Fall Semester classes.
Students in the Post-Secondary Enrollment Option Program (PSEO)
If you have earned college credits through the PSEO, you will still need to attend Orientation.
Pre-service interview for students with disabilities
Don't forget to contact the Technology, Academic/Instructional Programs, and Services (TAPS) department to schedule your pre-service interview. The pre-service interview is designed to assess disability-related needs and to plan services accordingly. Students are encouraged to contact the TAPS department well in advance (at least six months, if possible) of their planned entry date. You can reach the TAPS Department at 419-586-0326.
Parents, spouse, or other family members welcome!
Your parents or other family members are encouraged to come along with you, as they are an important part of most students' support system.
