December Progress Update

Good Morning, and, once again, Greetings from the Office of the Provost!
We are now nearing the end of calendar year 2011. In a few days, we will be in 2012, the year of our conversion to the Semester System.
Several weeks ago, 19 individuals from Wright State University attended a Semester Summit meeting held at the University of Cincinnati. Based on the material presented at this summit and on conversations with individuals from other Ohio universities converting to semesters, I can confidently tell you that Wright State University is well positioned to make an extremely smooth transition to semesters in fall 2012.
As we approach calendar year 2012, please keep the following points in mind:
There will be a variety of information coming to you beginning in January 2012. As in the past, I send all of this to you by email. Past emails are posted on the Semester Transition Website:
- As always, the most important thing for transition students to do is to meet with your Academic Advisor (undergraduate students) or Program Director (graduate students). These individuals are key points of contact for all questions relative to your academic success as the university moves to semesters.
- If you plan to take advantage of the items noted in the Wright State University “Pledge to Students," you must create, submit, and have approved a MAP (undergraduate students) or G-MAP (graduate students). Failure to do so will render the Pledge to Students void. You can create and submit this document at any time, but it must be created, submitted, and approved before the end of Spring Quarter 2012 (June 2, 2012). For information, review the TAP website, and in particular the section dealing with the MAP and G-MAP:
Once again, I am confident we will make a very smooth transition to semesters. If you have questions, please see your Academic Advisor, Program Director, or submit them at the link on the bottom of the TAP page or Semester page.

Semester Transition Credit Conversion
The following formula will be used to convert quarter credit hours to semester hours:
Quarter hours × 2/3 (or .667) = Semester hours
