Students must apply for admission to Wright State University.

Declaring Your Major

To apply for admission in the College of Science and Mathematics, students must fill out a “Change of Major” form and declare their area of emphasis (this can be done online through WINGS Express). Often students who have declared “earth and environmental sciences” as their area of interest on their Wright State admissions applications will be automatically sent to the College of Science and Mathematics from University College when entrance requirements are met. If this is not the case, students must fill out a change of major form and declare one of the following areas:

  • Earth and Environmental Sciences (B.A.)
  • Earth and Environmental Sciences (B.S.)
