Using This Catalog

The Wright State University Catalog is published annually and is active from fall semester through summer semester.  It contains a wealth of information for students, staff, and faculty members. Students should examine it carefully.

This catalog is a reliable guide for reviewing available programs of study, course descriptions and prerequisites, and meeting graduation requirements.  To the extent possible, the university will accept undergraduate and master’s program requirements for a seven-year period and doctoral degree program requirements for a ten-year period.

Since the policies and programs of the university are constantly changing, no catalog can be completely up-to-date, even when it is published. Therefore, students should review their programs periodically with their academic advisor and faculty advisors to allow for necessary changes.

Students are subject to current administrative policies, procedures, and regulations of the university. The general policies and regulations listed in the 2024 Undergraduate Catalog become effective fall 2024. Consult the Wright State Policy Index for other university policies.


The information in this catalog is subject to change and thus does not constitute an agreement or contract.  Every effort is made to provide accurate and up-to-date information; however, the university reserves the right to change without notice statements concerning rules, policies, fees, curricula, courses or other matters when necessary.  It is the student’s responsibility to know and follow current requirements and procedures at the departmental, divisional, and university levels.
