The Math Academy

The Wright State Math Academy is a unique opportunity offered to new students who are enrolled in DEV 0970, Basic Algebra, for the fall semester.  It enables them to get a head start on (or possibly even complete) the course before the semester begins.   The Math Academy uses ALEKS, the same individualized, web-based system as the DEV 0970 course.  The Mastery-Learning format used in both will allow the progress made by the student in the Academy to transfer seamlessly to the fall DEV 0970 course.

The Department of English Language and Literatures offers the Wright State Writing Academy. The Writing Academy fee is $120, but if you decide to enroll in both academies, the combined cost is $200 (not including housing fees and any textbook/material fees).

The Academy runs Monday through Wednesday, August 3 - August 26, 2015, from 1-4 p.m. The Academy costs $120, which will be charged to your University account. Housing is available at an additional cost of $360.

You will receive a confirmation email after registration has been completed. The deadline to apply for the Academy is July 24, 2015.

If you enroll, but then decide NOT to attend, you need to notify Dawn Arnold in University College no later than July 24, 2015. Otherwise you will be responsible for all fees. You can contact Dawn at (937) 775-2477 or at
