Academic Advising

Learn about our
Academic Advising Center

Academic Advising provides advising to most direct-from-high-school students, as well as transfer, returning, and adult students assigned to University College. With nearly 3,000 students, it is the largest undergraduate advising office on campus.

Advisors assist students with their transition into the university, discussing such issues as course selection, placement levels, the Wright State Core requirements, and helpful resources. Advisors ensure that students understand how to read their degree audit (DARS) and understand the admission requirements to their major. Students can find curriculum requirements and a sample four-year degree path for each undergraduate major in the university's online catalog through the Programs link.

The goal of Academic Advising is to promote student retention through the first-year and to ensure a seamless transition of students from University College into one of the six degree-granting undergraduate colleges.

College Credit Plus Program

The Ohio Board of Regents established the College Credit Plus Program to heighten students’ college and career readiness and postsecondary success. Students in grade 7-12 who qualify for college admission may take college level courses for which they earn both high school and transcripted college credit upon successful completion of coursework.  The College Credit Plus option replaces the former PSEO and dual enrollment programs.
