Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Response

Parent and Family Information

Updated: September 23, 2020

Information on this site may change frequently and without notice. Please check back often.

We look forward to welcoming your student to Wright State University. Whether their first semester or final classes before graduating, this term will continue to be affected by the current pandemic. Wright State will continue to offer exceptional education at one of the lowest university tuition rates in Ohio, maintaining our status as one of the top values for your family.

For parent and student questions regarding the Wright State response to COVID-19, please call or text Student Advocacy and Wellness at 937-260-0167.

Communication

For parent and student questions regarding the Wright State response to COVID-19, please call or text Student Advocacy and Wellness at 937-260-0167.

Important updates are sent out by email to students' Wright State email account. Encourage your student to forward important emails to you so you are also aware of any changes or upcoming dates. These emails may come from the Office of Communications, housing, the president, the provost, RaiderConnect, their professors and advisor, or a number of other wright.edu email addresses. These should be read in a timely manner.

Parents and family members may join the Wright State University Parents Facebook Group to interact with other Wright State parents and ask questions. Several university employees regularly visit that site to help answer questions. Note you will need a Facebook account to join the Facebook group. Members may not promote businesses or services on the group.


COVID-19 Protocol

In addition to other protocol in place, face coverings are required to be worn in public spaces by all students, faculty, staff, and visitors at Wright State University. Any exceptions must be documented.

Your student is encouraged to contact their health care providers immediately if they have health concerns related to COVID-19.

COVID-19 Testing

Student Health Services (937-245-7200) is the preferred point of the first contact for Dayton Campus students. Student Health Services can conduct a tele-health appointment to assess symptoms and refer students for testing. Wright State University Physicians and Student Health Services offer limited COVID-19 testing on our Dayton Campus. View additional COVID-19 testing information.

Lake Campus students are also encouraged to call Student Health Services to schedule a tele-health appointment. Lake Campus community members needing testing will be referred to the Mercer Health testing facility or other local testing facilities.


Fall Semester

Fall Semester began August 24. At the start of Thanksgiving break, all classes will move to remote delivery. Most classes will be offered remotely, though roughly 1/3 of courses will have either all or some in-person components. Learn more about academics this fall.

Student housing and dining will continue to be available after Thanksgiving break, as permitted by the state and local health departments. Email housing@wright.edu with additional housing questions.

Housing and dining rates have remained unchanged for Fall Semester 2020. Due to the apartment rates remaining unchanged from last year and free upgrades to single rooms in the residence halls (a $700 per semester upgrade), all housing residents will enjoy an excellent value for the same price. The university elected to keep meal plan rates the same as last year, even though there have been price increases for food, as well as added costs incurred to implement safety protocol precautions. As much as possible, the university is committed to absorbing these additional expenses and not passing those onto the students through additional fees.


In the Classroom

Classrooms are deep cleaned at least once per day by the cleaning staff. Cleaning solution, paper towels, and hand sanitizer are available in the classrooms. At the end of the class, all touched surfaces should be sanitzed thoroughly using provided cleaning supplies. Please call 937-775-4444 or email facilities@wright.edu if additional supplies are needed.

All students, faculty, staff, and visitors must wear face masks in campus buildings unless they have a documented accommodation from the Office of Disability Services. Faculty must wear a face covering while teaching. The university is following CDC recommendations, and those state that a face shield does not provide as much protection as a mask does. As such, face shields may not be used in place of a face mask.

If a student refuses to wear a face covering properly, they will be asked to leave the class. If a student refuses to leave, faculty members may consider dismissing the class and notifying the Office of Community Standards and Student Conduct at 937-775-4240 or studentconduct@wright.edu.

To maintain social distancing, stickers will be placed on the floors outside of classrooms to help students know where to stand when waiting outside of the classroom. Inside the classroom, facilities staff have removed extra seats and rearranged the furniture to allow appropriate physical distancing. View the adjusted classroom capacities.

Some classroom and computer lab spaces across campus are reserved for open study areas. View locations and hours.

View health and safety protocol for student safety in the classroom.


Academic Support

All the services your student depends on from the Division of Student Success will continue to be available to support your student's academic and career needs through the Fall Semester. Advising, tutoring, math and writing centers, career services, and placement testing will be provided in a virtual format. Visit the Student Success Services website for updates and more information. 


Campus Re-opening Dates

As university services and facilities establish re-opening dates and times, that information is updated on the facilities section of the coronavirus response site. Days and times are subject to change. Locations will have limited capacity to accommodate physical distancing requirement, so you are still encouraged to conduct business online as much as possible.

The university is now allowing some in-person activities. All in-person activity requests must go through a review process in order to be approved. The review process has been integrated into the previously established space reservation process. Learn more on the In-Person Activity page. All in-person activities will be categorized as low, medium, or high risk. Low-risk activities may be approved at the coordinator level; medium– and high-risk activities will require a risk mitigation plan and be reviewed by the activities review committee. Coordinators will assist event planners with the risk mitigation plan. Medium and high-risk activities may take up to 10 days to be reviewed.

Virtual events are encouraged to promote student life and engagement opportunities.


Dining on Campus

Dining is operational, but with an added level of safety and security. Students are still able to visit campus dining locations, order a hot meal, and sit down and enjoy. Below is a list of safety features that have been put into place:

  • Floor stickers to encourage social distancing
  • Plexiglass shields at all ordering locations and registers
  • Signage to encourage handwashing and face masks
  • Mandatory mask wearing
  • Hand sanitizer station at entrances
  • One way in and out
  • Mobile ordering, which reduces time spent in the dining locations
  • Limited seating
  • Limited occupancy
  • Frequent cleaning of all high touch locations, e.g., fountain drink machines
  • Removal of all self-service options like salad bar, yogurt bar, etc.

While Hospitality Services is doing everything they can to ensure dining safely, students are encouraged to take their meals to go. Students can also use the GrubHub app for convenient on-campus mobile ordering to reduce the time spent in the dining locations.

For locations, hours of operations, menus, specials, and more, please visit the Hospitality Services website.


Parking and Campus Shuttles

Students must display a valid Fall Semester 2020 parking permit when they park on campus; parking enforcement will remain unchanged and citations will be issued to those who do not display a valid permit. Parking permits for Fall Semester 2020 will be sold at a reduced rate of $48, instead of the regular rate of $95. This includes both commuter and resident permits. Additionally, students may park in any non-reserved staff, faculty, or student spot on campus.

Order parking permit now.

Campus shuttles, Raider Ride, and the campus paratransit services will be reduced for Fall Semester to decrease risk of exposure. Please visit the transportation page for more information.


Fees, Account Access, and Related Help

Tuition, housing, and meal plans continue to be held in place for all those who are in the Wright Guarantee Program. We are proud to remain among the most affordable options in the state.

Student bills are sent out by email to students' Wright State email accounts. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), prevents third parties (parent, spouse, employer, etc.) from having access to a student's record without the student's consent. To view your student's record, your student must make you a proxy. To access your student's billing, the student must add you as an authorized user.

The best way to contact RaiderConnect with questions about billing, scholarships, financial aid, and registration is by email at RaiderConnect@wright.edu.

The best way to contact the CaTS Help Desk with user account access and technology questions is by email at HelpDesk@wright.edu or call 937-775-4827.
