WSU reaches out to ITT students


Greene County News

FAIRBORN — Advisers in Wright State University’s Transfer and Nontraditional Student Center are reaching out to ITT students and graduates to let them know about transfer options to Wright State.

“Wright State is a perfect fit for students in transition from area colleges,” said Charles Long, executive director of the Transfer and Nontraditional Student Center at Wright State. “When we reached out to Antioch students in transition back in 2008 we were able to really helps students who needed a local solution.”

One immediate option ITT students should consider is to take the Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) route.

Wright State faculty approved a PLA policy in 2015 that gives ITT students and graduates an opportunity to have their coursework assessed for meeting the learning outcomes of specific courses taught at Wright State.

“The assessment is conducted by exam or portfolio review,” said Carl Brun, assistant vice president for curricular programs. “Wright State accepts exam scores from five external providers, and the most common for transfer students is the College Level Exam Program. That would be my suggestion for ITT students looking to come to Wright State.”

ITT students seeking a transfer to Wright State are advised to first contact Long at 937-775-4830 or email the Transfer and Nontraditional Student Center at transfer@wright.edu.

ITT students wanting to learn more about Prior Learning Assessment opportunities at Wright State should call Brun, who is the university’s PLA Coordinator, at 937-775-2150 or email at carl.brun@wright.edu.
