Semester Transition Advising
Undergraduate Students: Prepare Now
Semesters Advising Semesters Portal Page Banner
Dear Undergraduate Student:
As you may know, Wright State is changing to semesters in Fall 2012, which means there are 10 quarters and two intersessions (Spring 2010 through Summer 2012) remaining before the conversion. Students who complete their degrees before the switch occurs will not have to adjust to a new academic calendar or transition to a semester curriculum. We recommend that you consult your advisor now to determine whether you can graduate under quarters, thus avoiding the transition process.
Many students will not be able to complete their degrees before the transition, and the university is doing everything it can to help those students through the transition. Please keep in mind that any multiple-course sequence, such as math or science, started on a quarter calendar should be finished, whenever possible, before the transition to semesters.
There are several resources available to help you plan:
- Course schedule planning guide for the remaining quarters and intersessions
- DARS (degree audit)
- Your academic advisor
If you have questions, please contact your academic advisor for assistance.
