Academic advising is the key to your success at Wright State University Lake Campus. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with their academic advisor on a regular basis. Academic advising at the Lake Campus is done by some academic departments and by advisors in the Student Services Office.
Students should see an academic advisor regarding their selection of a degree program, as well as to plan course work for each quarter. Some majors require a student to have their PIN removed before they can register for classes, and other students may register online by using WINGS EXPRESS.

DARS is an acronym for a program called the Degree Audit Reporting System. DARS helps students and advisors analyze the degree requirements for a student's major based on the catalog year in which the student enrolled at Wright State University. DARS is a useful tool for students to navigate through their degree progress. The new interactive Audit offers interactive graphs, charts, and a course cart feature. The Interactive Audit also includes links to course descriptions for remaining courses. The course cart allows you to add planned courses to your degree audit and can aid in degree completion planning.
IMPORTANT: Always talk to your advisor when you aren't sure about your DARS audit (or transfer course equivalencies).
Have you tried to register for classes and found you have an Alt-Pin on your account? There may be several reasons why. You must meet with an advisor before your Alt-Pin can be removed.
