Your Interests

Remember: This is NOT an official application for acceptance into graduate studies at Wright State University. Rather it is simply an opportunity to get to know each other better, quickly and informally than through the formal application. The official application to the Wright State Graduate School is still a requirement for formal acceptance into our program. Thanks for visiting, and we look forward to hearing from you.
