Orientation is a self-paced virtual experience, allowing you the flexibility to learn about university resources, make campus connections, and get a fall schedule of courses through a series of activities available throughout the week. Your experience will take about the same time as a full-day event (six to eight hours) but spread throughout the week at your convenience.
All orientation materials and presentations will be captioned and accessible for screen readers. Should you need additional assistance with any other accommodation request, please contact our office at email@example.com or call 937-775-5244 and leave a message.
To register for orientation, log into the Admissions Portal and select Orientation Registration under Next Steps.
It's not too late to apply for on-campus housing at orientation. Become one of the nearly 3,000 students who call our residential communities home. At orientation, you can meet with staff members from housing and tour the residence halls.
Many of our students drive, bike, or walk from home or off-campus apartments each day. We offer a variety of resources that will help you stay connected to the campus community. Visit the Commuter Student Lounge in the lower level of the Student Union to access free lockers, a microwave, refrigerator, and study space that you can use while on campus.
We also offer activities and events for commuters that help you stay in touch with current campus happenings and provide you with information about various departments and campus services. Interested in living in off-campus housing? The Office of Student Support Services maintains a database of roommate listings and off-campus property postings, as well as a handbook to guide you through the process.
Most first-year students enroll in a First-Year Seminar, a group of about 20 students who share similar interests, a major, or classes. The seminar is designed for student success, and will help you adjust fast to Wright State. You can learn more about First-Year Seminars at Orientation and sign up there.
Placement tests help you and your academic advisor determine your initial courses in mathematics, English, or foreign language. The course registration information you fill out in your Admissions Portal will provide specific testing instructions based on your ACT or SAT scores.
