Semester Transition Advising
Early planning for transition students

Greetings from the Office of the Provost!
At this point, everything is proceeding appropriately relative to our conversion to semesters in Fall 2012. We are nearing the completion of the curriculum conversion process. The TAP (Transition Advising Page) is up and available. The MAP (My Advising Plan) and G-MAP (Graduate-My Advising Plan) processes are available for students. The Fall 2012 schedule is being planned. In short, everything is on schedule for a successful conversion to semesters.
There is a lot going on. My goal, however, is for most of this to be happening “behind the scenes.”
That said, now is the time for all students to begin thinking seriously about the semester conversion as it relates to each student’s individual academic success. If you are going to be a “Transition Student," starting on the quarter system and graduating under the semester system, now is a good time to begin planning.
I would suggest three steps to take right now.
- Make an appointment to meet with your Advisor or Program Director
- Look at the information on the Wright State Semester Transition website
- Look at the information on the Transition Advising Website (TAP)
Taking these steps NOW will go a long way to making the transition smooth and seamless.
As always, if you have questions, submit them at www.wright.edu/semesters/form.html

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
The Credit Conversion Table (PDF) provides credit hour conversion examples.
