If you are a student at Sinclar who does not know where you want to transfer to or continue your education, Sinclair Community College is hosting zoom transfer calls with directors from different colleges, giving students information about their school and the benefits they offer. 

Choosing a college can be stressful for some students. Advisors are available to help you along your path so that you may accomplish your future goals.

One of the most affordable colleges in Ohio, Wright State University has a two plus two transfer program. The Zoom meeting for Wright State University will occur on Nov. 17 at 11:00 a.m. 

These zoom meetings feature key speakers, such as Kimberly Collins, the director of partnership at Sinclair, Giancarlo Mariani, associate director of international transfer, and Lucas Abromowitz, the associate director of Transfer, Transition, and Orientation,

Located in Dayton, Wright State University is home to the Raiders! WSU has close to 150 majors to choose from. Abromowitz encourages Sinclair students to join the Wright Path Program. According to Sinclair, this is a program that allows students to seamlessly transfer after achieving their associate degree. The “Wright Path Program” provides students with certain benefits, such as accessibility to Wright State services and clubs, housing plans, and transfer scholarships that are based on your GPA. These scholarships are also accessible to international students.

Abromowitz recommends starting planning and applying a year before you are planning to attend WSU. This year, WSU has created changes to the application process, requiring that documents be changed.  

Notably, WSU no longer has a fee for their application. ACT and SAT scores are no longer required across the board. An official college transcript is needed; however, if you do not have 15 credit college hours, you do need to submit an official high school transcript. Speakers recommend sending all documents electronically, as WSU will receive them quickly. Wright State is still removing and adding admission requirements. Therefore,  to check for changes, one must log onto their official site.  

As previously mentioned, there are GPA requirements to be eligible for scholarships. Some requirements are listed here: 

  • 3.0 GPA you are eligible for $1,000 
  • 3.25-3.49 GPA you are eligible for $2,000 
  • 3.5 or higher GPA you are eligible for $3,500  

The application process for international students is different for others, but it can be easier than it sounds.

Alike WSU, four-year universities like Franklin University, Indiana University East and Northern Kentucky University, Mount St. Joseph University, Ohio State University, and a few other schools are offering these sessions
