State-of-the-art laboratories and research programs make Wright State a top choice for international students.

Looking to start at a community college and transfer to Wright State in the future?

To ensure an eventual seamless transition to Wright State, it is important to complete coursework that will apply directly to your future degree.

Join our Wright Path community. Wright Path is a partnership between Wright State and local community colleges. We offer a number of transfer guides to help guide you on your path from associate to bachelor's degree. These guides will help you take the right courses, saving you both time and money.

While you may choose to take other courses not part of a Wright Path agreement, be cautious of algebra-based technical courses or science courses, as they may not apply to your intended degree program. Please consult an academic advisor if you have any questions.

Visit the Wright State Transfer Center for more information about Wright Path, a list of our community college partners and transfer guides, transfer scholarships, and other transfer student resources.
