- You are considered a former Wright State student if you attended Wright State as a degree-seeking student but have not registered in the past three semesters.
- Plan to complete the application process at least four to six weeks before the semester you wish to attend. Once we have received all required documents, it takes two to three weeks to process an application
- Former students with at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA (4.0 scale) from the last institution attended are eligible to apply for unconditional admission. Students with a GPA below a 2.0 should refer to the admission petition section. Students dismissed from Wright State must submit a petition form.
- Be sure to list all colleges and universities that you have attended on your application
- Former students who have been away from Wright State for more than 3 years should talk to an academic advisor about the Fresh Start Policy
It will take up to three weeks to process the application once all required items are received. You can track your application status online.
Wright State University has a rolling admissions policy. Typically the admissions application deadline for each semester is the week before classes start. Check the Academic Calendar for more information.
Selective Service REGISTRATION
Almost all male U.S. citizens, regardless of where they live, and male immigrants, whether documented or undocumented, residing in the United States, who are 18 through 25 years of age, are required to register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday.
A man is exempt from registering while he is on full-time active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces. Members of the National Guard and Reserve Forces not on full-time active duty must register. When a man has been released from active duty he must register at that time unless he has reached age 26 or is already registered. Lawfully admitted nonimmigrant aliens (for example, those on student visas) are not required to register.
For complete information regarding who must register for Selective Service and exemptions, or to register with Selective Services, please visit the U.S. Government Official Selective Services System website, https://www.sss.gov/
Selective Service Registration and Ohio Residency (for Tuition Purposes)
Ohio Revised Code 3345.32 (http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/3345.32) mandates that Ohio students who are required to register with the U.S. Selective Service yet who have not done so are ineligible for state of Ohio tuition subsidy. Under the law, Ohio institutions of higher learning are required to charge such students the non-resident tuition rate. If you are considered by Wright State University to be an Ohio resident-for-tuition-purposes, but you are not registered with Selective Services, Wright State University is required by this law to assess the non-resident tuition rate to your student bill.
To continue your Ohio-resident-for-tuition-purposes classification, Wright State University is required to obtain your Selective Service Registration Number.
If you are already registered, but you do not remember your Selective Service Registration Number, you can obtain it at the official Selective Services website, https://www.sss.gov/
It is the student's responsibility to provide the Wright State University Office of the Registrar with that number. If you do not provide that registration number to the Office of the Registrar, Wright State University must assess non-resident tuition fees to your tuition bill.
Students are expected to make full payment by their appropriate payment due date. Payment deadlines may not be waived or extended while a student's residency status is under review or while you are waiting to receive your Selective Service Registration Number.
Wright State University does not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, sex (including gender identity/expression), color, religion, ancestry, national origin, age, disability, genetic (DNA) information, veteran status, military status, or sexual orientation. We take affirmative action to recruit and assist members of various racial or ethnic groups, women, Vietnam-era veterans, and persons with disabilities whose ability to achieve academic success might otherwise be unrecognized because of cultural barriers. Our policy is consistent with the various federal and Ohio statutes that prohibit discrimination.
