BELOW AVERAGE

Wright State University-Main Campus graduation rate is below the national average.

40% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Wright State University-Main Campus completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t take into consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare educational institutions.

Overall Rating:

Was sexually harassed by a professor and then encouraged by the school to drop the hearing.RAed for a PhD student who was forced by the administration to curve grades that would have failed the students otherwise. The administration is concerned about funneling students through the university vs letting them fail when they should fail.

Overall Rating:

Most people who trash the Wright State never went to another school. Having transferred two and a half years into college I was happy to finally have professors who actually have office hours, care about their students, and actually stop class to answer questions. Believe it or not, other large public universities don't care about their students at all. Try sitting in a room with hundreds of students shouting and throwing things all class while the professor clicks through slides for hours. Also, at least at Wright State you can walk right in to the advisers office and speak with someone if you have an issue.With that being said, I did have to take one math class at WSU which was absolutely dismal and an insult to the name of education. 3 tests determined 90% of the final grade. Each test had a few problems and the professor (also the department head) gave no partial credit and asked the most ridiculous non-comprehensive questions. I ended up with my only "D" and this was in Linear Algebra....Let that sink in.Maybe if I had to take more math classes like this I would be more negative. However, overall it has been a great experience.

If you need mental health services, good luck. Over 2 months on a waiting list to receive counseling so if you are having a hard time I guess deal with it. If you want to see a psychiatrist you must come in 2 hours before you will be seen and it's not even guaranteed you will be seen because they only accept 3 people a week. The nursing program is an absolute disaster. Professors are disorganized and not even fluent in the subject which they teach. You will ask them a question and they wont have the answer and/or will be rude to you for even asking. My academic advisor in my first year told me to sign up for classes I didn't even need so I completely wasted time and money because I did not figure this out until it was too late. Avoid this school at all costs, it's absolutely falling apart because the admin misused our hard earned money we put into this school expecting an education and receiving basically nothing in return. I would like to add that the staff at mental health services is wonderful and I did have some great gen. ed professors and they deserve a school that will put it's money in the right places to benefit students and staff.

WSU has been nothing less than a headache. My husband has attended there for two years and in those two years he was registered for two classes that he took and finished only to find out later he didn't even need. Yet, he paid for them. The staff is totally clueless and good luck finding an advisor that knows what's going on. I tell people to avoid this place, much better colleges around to attend!
