Refund & Withdrawals

The University defines official withdrawals or drops as those successfully processed by one of the following methods:

Official University Refund Policy

One hundred percent refund of instructional fees is made for official withdrawals and drops* made before the term begins and through the Friday of the third week of the semester. The billable credit hour range is 1-12 hours and credit hours over 18. For withdrawals after this date, no refund will be given. Summer term refunds and flexible scheduled class refunds are prorated. All refunds will be determined as of the date of official withdrawal. An exception to this policy will be granted for reservists and active duty military personnel who are deployed for the purpose of military action.

Students who have experienced extraordinary extenuating circumstances during a term and who officially drop or withdraw after the refund period may submit a petition for a partial refund which, if approved, will be prorated according to the date of official withdrawal.* Nonattendance of classes or failure to pay for classes does not constitute official withdrawal. Refunds will not be granted for a course after one of the following grades has been assigned: A, B, C, D, F, X, I, U, P, S, M or N. Refund petitions must be received no later than July 15, following the end of an academic year.

Refund petition forms may be completed at Raider Connect, in the Student Union. The deadline for submitting a refund petition and supporting documentation to Raider Connect is July 15, following the end of an academic year. A decision will be made and the outcome will be mailed to the student within approximately 10 working days.

It is the student's responsibility to make sure the drop/withdrawal was completed correctly at the time of the request. This may be done by checking the adjusted schedule on WINGS EXPRESS after completing a transaction. Students who withdraw or drop a class at Raider Connect will receive a printed copy of the adjusted schedule after the transaction has been completed.

Students who withdraw after the University's official refund period will not receive full (100%) refunds by petitioning. Refunds resulting from an approved refund petition will be based on the date of official withdrawal and prorated according to the following schedule:

Time Frame % of Refund

Attendance and Drop Policy

Instructors establish attendance policies and penalties for absences for individual courses; penalties may include lowering of the grade or even failure if the absences exceed those permitted by the instructor. Such policies and penalties should be included in the course syllabus and available to the students at the first class meeting.

For courses designated "Instructor Permission Required after Term Begins," students may be dropped from the course for being absent from the first two class meetings (for courses meeting more than once a week) or from the first class (for courses meeting only once a week). When this policy is utilized, any student missing the designated class(es) may be dropped from the specific section. The Instructor must notify the Office of the Registrar promptly for the students to be removed from the roll.

Audit Policy

If class space permits, a student may audit a course. The instructor’s permission is required on a registration form which is presented at the registration windows. The amount of participation required for an audited class is at the discretion of the instructor, but it cannot exceed that required of a regular student.

Audited classes can be used to establish full-time status, and will not count toward degree requirements. Although there is no credit received for an audited class, it costs the same as if the class was taken for credit. Some classes are not available for audit.

NOTE: Changes from credit to audit or audit to credit may NOT be made after the 5th business day of a regular term or the 2nd day of a short term.

Cancellations for Non–Payment Policy

If you are registered and do not plan to attend, please withdraw from your classes as soon as possible to open up seats for other students. To ensure removal of tuition and fees withdraw from your classes before the end of the 100% refund period.

Official withdrawals are those which are processed through WINGS Express or in person at Raider Connect or at the Lake Campus Enrollment Services.

NOTE: Students may register for flexibly scheduled classes/workshops anytime prior to the start of the class/workshop without a late registration/add fee or instructor permission unless the class is closed.

Students who register or add classes after the 16th day of the term due to extenuating circumstances may submit a refund petition requesting that the late charges be removed under one of the following conditions:

  • Documented university error
  • Extraordinary extenuating circumstances documented by the student, which prevented registration by the 16th calendar day of a term


The Refund Petition is available on our website under FORMS or in Raider Connect, located in the Student Union. The late registration/add fee petitions committee meets monthly.

Registration and Add Policy

For most courses, students may register or add on WINGS Express (within WINGS) or at Raider Connect anytime through the seventh calendar day of the term.

These exceptions apply:

  • For courses designated "Instructor Permission Required, or Department Permission Required" students may register or add only with the instructor's / department's permission.
  • For courses designated "Instructor Permission Required after the Term Begins," students may register or add until the first day of the term, after which they need to obtain the instructor's permission.

Departments must notify the Registrar which courses require instructor permission when the courses are scheduled. Students registering after the term begins are responsible for all missed assignments and cannot expect that due dates will be altered.

Repeat Policy

Effective beginning Summer Quarter 2011 (June 13, 2011) Wright State University has a new Undergraduate Repeating Courses and Replacing Grades Policy. Use the following link to learn the details of this new policy. Please note that colleges or majors may have more restrictive conditions regarding repeats. Therefore, it is recommended that students consult with their academic advisor when deciding whether or not to repeat courses with grade replacement. Students currently receiving or planning to receive financial aid are strongly encouraged to consult with a financial aid counselor to determine the potential impact repeating a course may have on eligibility.


New Undergraduate Repeating and Replacing Grades Policy Frequently Asked Questions

Q:   Which course grades are repeatable with grade replacement under the new policy?

A:  A student may repeat with replacement a course in which a grade of B, C, D, F, or X has been earned. Withdrawals (W) are not counted as repeats.

Q:   *How many grade replacements am I permitted?

A:  *Students are permitted up to a cumulative total of five grade replacements.

*All courses repeated before the effective date of this policy and affected by the previous repeat policy will be counted toward the five-course maximum. In such cases, there will be no adjustment of GPA for previous terms as well.

*Exception to the five grade replacements policy: Beginning Summer Quarter 2011 through Summer Quarter 2012, students who repeat courses and meet the criteria for the old repeat policy’s 45/60 rule (Freshman Forgiveness) will qualify for grade replacements even if they have exceeded five grade replacements. These exceptions on students’ records will occur as part of the Office of the Registrar’s course repeat process and will not require students to petition.

Q:   I did 4 repeats under "freshman forgiveness" where only the repeated grades counted toward my GPA. I also repeated a course last semester and the grade was averaged in, that is, both the original grade and last semester's grade counted in my GPA. Am I eligible to repeat any more courses with replacement?

A:   Yes, you are eligible to repeat with replacement one more course. A student may have up to five repeats with replacement. Course repeats for which the grades were averaged do not count toward the five maximum.

Q:   If I repeat courses with grade replacement, will the record of my previous course attempts be removed from my academic transcript?

A:    No. The credit hours earned, if applicable, and GPA effect from those courses will not be included in your credit hours earned or cumulative GPA. However, the earlier attempts still appear on your academic transcript.

Q:   Will courses that can be repeated for credit—like independent study or a course with a different title but same number—be counted in the repeat policy?

A: No. Courses with variable content can be retaken once or more to affect the student’s cumulative GPA and may result in additional credit hours earned. These courses will not count towards a student’s five grade replacements.

Q:  Are transfer courses eligible for the new repeat with grade replacement policy?

A:    No. Students who have transferred courses with grades of B, C, or D may take equivalent courses at Wright State. In those cases, the hours earned for the Wright State course(s) will be counted and the grades included in the student’s Wright State cumulative GPA. However, the hours earned for the transfer course will no longer be counted, but the transfer GPA will remain unchanged.

Selective Service Policy

A law passed by the Ohio Assembly requires state universities to charge non-resident fees to male Ohio resident students who are not registered with the Selective Service. In addition, Selective Service registration is linked to many federal and state benefits, including eligibility for federal student loans and grants.

Federal law requires virtually all men to register with Selective Service within 30 days of turning 18. Males who have not registered with Selective Service may register online at the Selective Service System Web site or go to any U.S. Post Office.

If you have registered and need a replacement acknowledgement card, call the Selective Service at 1-847-688-6888 Monday through Friday, between 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. central time.

Residency Policy

Ways to Qualify for Ohio Residency

Ways to Qualify for Ohio Residency for Tuition Purposes
Based on Ohio Administrative Code Residency Rule 3333-1-10
For information on Indiana Reciprocity

To review the complete text of OAC 3333-1-10 go to http://codes.ohio.gov/oac/3333-1-10

Students who meet one of the following criteria for Ohio residency may apply for a change in residency status by completing the residency application form, providing clear photocopies of the requested documentation, and submitting them to Raider Connect by mail or in person no later than the first week of the term for which a student is applying. All residency requirements must be met by the first day of the term for which a student applies. Submission of residency application and the requested documents does not guarantee a change in residency status, because criteria must be met as specified in OAC 3333-1-10.

According to the residency regulations, it is the responsibility of the student to apply for a change in residency status as soon as he/she is eligible. It also states that tuition adjustments cannot be made retroactively for past semesters. Residency applications received after the first week of a term will be considered for future semesters.

Please Note: Fee payment deadlines cannot be extended while a student’s residency application is being reviewed. Students may opt to pay by using the university’s installment plan. Information on payment options can be found on the Bursar’s web page at http://www.wright.edu/bursar/payment/sipp.html. The University’s deadlines for fee payment and for withdrawing with a refund are published on the Registrar’s web page.
