Semester Transition Advising
November Progress Update
Semesters Advising Semesters Portal Page Banner
Good Morning, and, once again, Greetings from the Office of the Provost!
Our conversion to Semesters is on track. The conversion and approval of programs and courses is virtually complete. Advising materials are posted on the TAP site (http://www.wright.edu/semesters-advising) and are ready for use. Campus processes and procedures are being converted and will be ready by Fall, 2012. In short, we are in very good shape as we approach the end of 2011.
Before going further, let me make a couple of important points:
1) Wright State University is strongly committed to not having the conversion to semesters adversely affect any transition student. If you have not already seen it, please look at the WSU Pledge to Students:
2) To ensure this pledge, students must meet with their academic advisor, prepare and submit for approval a MAP (undergraduate students) or a G-MAP (graduate students). Information, instructions, FAQs, and conditions regarding these processes may be found at:
3) There will be a number of campus processes that will be affected by the semester conversion. I will use this monthly email to keep everyone informed. We will also post these emails on the Semesters website.
In less than two month we will be in calendar year 2012, the year of our semester conversion. Early registration for the 2011 Intersession and for winter quarter 2012 is going on now. While it is always important to carefully consider the classes you take, if you are a transition student (starting on quarters and graduating on semesters) it is now even more important. In addition, because Fall, 2012 will be on semesters, the upcoming 2011 Intersession will be the last such term we will have. Students looking to graduate prior to Fall, 2012, might therefore review classes offered in Intersession, 2011 relative to completing degree requirements.
If you have not already done so, please make an appointment to speak with your advisor to make sure you are on track to graduate.
Also, as I mentioned in my previous emails, do check out the TAP site and also the Semester site. (http://www.wright.edu/semesters). If you have questions, you can ask them at the link at the bottom of both pages.

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.
