Why Choose the Wright Path Program?

You can take advantage of a unique partnership between Wright State University and Southern State Community College called the Wright Path. The agreement is designed to provide a path to bachelor’s degree programs for students like you in southwest Ohio.

Students enrolled in this program will receive support from both schools to ensure a seamless transition from Southern State to Wright State. Students receive joint advising and may qualify for a special partnership scholarship.

In addition to joint advising, you will be able to use identified Wright State facilities, have the undergraduate Wright State application fee waived, gain admission to non-ticketed athletic and cultural events, and be permitted to participate or attend select student activities. You may also apply to live on campus and have access to student parking with the purchase of a permit.

You must also maintain satisfactory academic progress, including earning a minimum GPA of 2.25 while at Southern State to stay in the program.
