Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Response

Support For Students Going Forward

Dear Students,

We have entered unchartered territory as we cope with a difficult new reality for us all. Our commitment and focus remain your safety and well-being followed by the continuity of your education.

Most classes will shift to an online or other remote delivery format on Monday, March 16. If you are able, make sure that you have the equipment and connectivity you need to learn from home. As we navigate these challenges, we want to make sure we provide good information and recommendations moving forward.

Points of Contact

Your classroom instructor remains your primary point of contact for all things related to your specific courses. Please email them directly with any questions about your course.

Academic advisors will be able to assist with questions you may have about changes in your academic schedule and class format during this time of transition. You can find your academic advisor’s name by going to wright.edu/advising and following the instructions in the “Find Your Primary Advisor” section. Alternatives to face-to-face advising are available.


All official university events, receptions, gatherings, and student activities are suspended until further notice. As the situation changes, we will provide frequent updates as events are rescheduled and/or canceled definitively.


Many campus resources remain open for use and will be accessible in some format. These include Dunbar Library, the Student Union, the Student Success Center (tutoring, writing lab, and math lab).Please be prepared to have virtual and/or phone meeting for some services. Some services, like tutoring, which rely heavily on your student peers, are in flux as they reconfigure resources.

At the moment what we know:

Final Withdrawal Date has been extended one week

The final day to withdraw from classes has been extended to Friday, March 27. This is the last day you can withdraw from your courses with a “W” only grade.

Please continue to contact RaiderConnect if you have questions regarding financial aid, withdrawal, and registration for Summer courses.


Because classes are resuming Monday, March 16, we will not grant automatic refunds. If you desire a refund you must follow the petition process.

Wright State remains committed to ensuring you receive the highest quality education and academic services as we face this global challenge together.

Please be alert for operational changes, but most of all, be safe and take care of one another.

Thank you,
