Raider Open House


A quality, affordable education from Wright State opens the door to endless possibilities. Our robust scholarship opportunities, quality academic programs, and low tuition rate make pursuing your degree at Wright State a smart investment in your future.

Last year, more than 78 percent of new students received a Wright State scholarship. A scholarship is a form of financial aid that does not have to be repaid. It is often merit-based or restricted to a select population of students. 

To maximize your scholarship and financial aid eligibility, you must file your FAFSA annually. The application opens every year on October 1. If you need assistance completing your FAFSA, RaiderConnect is here to help. Contact us at or 937-775-4000.
