Semester Transition Advising
Message from the Director of Semester Conversion

Good morning to all and greetings from the Office of the Provost.
My name is Dr. Herbert Dregalla, and since January, I have been serving as the Director of Semester Conversion here at Wright State University. Prior to being appointed to that position, I was the Chair of the WSU Department of Music. It is my responsibility to oversee and coordinate the move from the quarter system to the semester system. As you know, the semester system will begin in Fall, 2012.
Between now and then, there will be a lot of activities going on to insure that this transition is smooth. I will personally be sending announcements about some of these. This is the first.
The message of this email is important: If you have not already done so, I encourage everyone to visit the WSU Semester Website:
There is a lot of information on this website describing what is happening and what students can do to ensure the successful completion of their degrees.
One of the most important pieces of this site is the WSU Pledge to Students. This pledge is your assurance that Wright State is doing everything possible to make this transition seamless.
I look forward to helping everyone transition into 2012.
