What classes should you take? How do you join a club? How do you find a tutor? Whether you're a new student or a transfer student, our orientation experiences will provide answers to your questions, connections to campus, and the skills that will make you a successful student.

We are excited to welcome our newest Raiders to the Wright State community. As part of our three-step orientation experience, you will have the opportunity to participate in a mix of online and on-campus activities designed to help you prepare for your first day of classes and beyond.

Three-Step Orientation Experience

During your virtual orientation session, you will register for classes and learn about the services and support available to you. Choose the week that best works for your schedule and enjoy the flexibility of completing orientation from anywhere at any time. You will have a full week to complete your session at your own pace.

To register for a virtual orientation session, log into the Admissions Portal, and select Orientation Registration under Next Steps. The orientation fee is $25. Once you have registered, you will receive an email confirmation with a secure, personalized link that you will use to pay your fee.


STEP 2: Attend an on-campus college program. photo of a student and family in the student union

You and your family are invited to campus to take a closer look at Wright State and your academic college. Attend information sessions, learn about expectations, meet with faculty and staff, and tour the facilities and classrooms you will be using at Wright State.

This is also a great opportunity to take care of important business while you are on campus. Meet with RaiderConnect staff to discuss financial aid, get your Wright1 Card student ID, purchase your textbooks, and more. 

Additional details and registration information will be provided during your virtual orientation session (Step 1).


STEP 3: Get connected during First Weekend 2021.photo of students at a campus event

Meet other students, explore student life opportunities, experience the Raider life, and have fun. Additional information will be posted at wright.edu/firstweekend as it becomes available. 

We will also be hosting a variety of online Q&A sessions throughout the summer provide you and your family with an opportunity to get your questions answered and learn more about what to expect at Wright State. Details will be announced during your virtual orientation session (Step 1).
