Wright State offers summer tuition discount


In-state undergraduate students at Wright State can save up to 20 percent on three credit hours by taking summer classes.

The price cut is part of a rebate plan that allows students to save money if they take classes during the summer semester.

The discount allows students to save as much as $236 on courses at Wright State’s Dayton Campus and up to $159 at the Lake Campus this summer, according to the university.

Students can take advantage of the discount until the deadline to register for classes on May 7, said spokesperson Seth Bauguess. Summer classes at Wright State start May 8.

To be eligible for the rebate, students must complete at least 24 total credit hours during the fall 2016 and spring 2017 semesters. High school students who have completed 24 credit hours through Ohio’s College Credit Plus program at WSU are also eligible.

More than 2,000 students took advantage of the rebate program last summer, amounting to a combined savings of about $461,000 in tuition, Bauguess said.

“We are trying to save students money as quickly as we can,” said WSU Provost Thomas Sudkamp. “The Summer Tuition Rebate had immediate impact on the cost of attendance for Ohio undergraduate students last summer and we hope next summer it will have the same or greater impact.”

The rebate program was created in response to Ohio House Bill 64, which requires colleges to develop ways to make college more affordable, according to the university.

WSU said it is implementing other measures to help students save money, including reducing to 120 the number of required credit hours students must take in order to graduate.

Previously, bachelor’s degree programs ranged from 120 to 136 credit hours, Bauguess said. Most programs had credit hour requirements reduced between the spring and fall of 2016.

“Reducing the number of credit hours helps to streamline programs while continuing to prepare students for academic success and allowing them to graduate within four years,” said Amanda Steele-Middleton, university registrar.

That equates to 15 credit hours per semester, which Steele-Middleton said is in line with standards nationally.
