The Wright State PASS Partnership Program formalizes the link between the Wright State University Dayton and Lake Campuses and the Edison State Community College Piqua and Darke County Campuses to provide seamless student movement between the two institutions. The objective is to facilitate student entry or reentry into a bachelor's degree program at Wright State University.
To enter the PASS Partnership Program, students must declare their intent to enroll at Wright State University following the completion of a specified program of study at Edison State, which may consist of an entire associate degree or a set of course equivalencies, depending upon the students prior academic record and intended major.
To get started, students must complete Edison State's application and indicate their interest in participating in the PASS Partnership Program either on the application or to an appropriate staff member. Edison State will notify Wright State University of PASS participants. In order to remain eligible and continue in the program, students must retain good academic standing at Edison State. (See the Edison State
Standard of Academic Progress Policy (SAP) for details.)
Upon completion of the PASS Partnership Program, students will be guaranteed admission to Wright State University. While in the program, PASS students will meet with academic advisors at Edison State and at Wright State University to ensure that they are taking classes that will transfer to Wright State University and be applied appropriately toward degree requirements.
The PASS Partnership Program pathway provides students a unique environment in which they receive support from both institutions to ensure a seamless transition from Edison State to Wright State University. In addition to joint advising, students in the PASS Partnership Program will be provided the opportunity to use identified Wright State University facilities and become part of the Wright State University community.
*Students in the PASS Partnership Program will be assessed fees equivalent to those of Wright State students for extramural activities.
**Students must apply and be accepted for housing at
www.wright.edu/housing***For residential students only. Additional fees required.
The PASS Partnership Program is designed for all types of students:
All students should meet with advisors from both Edison State and Wright State University to develop a program of study that will enable the student to be admitted/readmitted to Wright State University. Wright State University and Edison State Community College advisors will encourage students who transfer without the associate degree to "reverse transfer" once they have completed the proper courses in order to earn the associate's degree after matriculation to Wright State University. Both institutions will work toward creating a set of criteria to identify students who might qualify for reverse transfer, and then will work actively to create a streamlined process for notifying students, reviewing records, exchanging transcripts, and awarding associate degrees to qualified students.
PASS Partnership students have the option to apply for housing* at Wright State University for either the Lake Campus or the Dayton Campus. Students must complete a Wright State University PASS housing application at
www.wright.edu/housing (Dayton) or
lake.wright.edu/housing (Lake). Students must provide all information required by Wright State, including proof of insurance and a background check for Lake Campus. Residential students must also complete the Medical History Form for Residential Students and provide evidence of satisfactory immunization records in English. Students living in Dayton Campus residence halls are required to enroll in a meal plan. Wright State's Bursar's office will bill Edison's business office for housing and meal plan fees for PASS Partnership participants.
* Dependent upon availability.
Edison State Community College will assess tuition and fees for courses taken at Edison. Fees for Wright State University services will be assessed by Wright State and collected by Edison. Wright State University and Edison State Community College will grant housing privileges after students have been accepted into the PASS Partnership Program, have submitted the housing application, have completed their FAFSA, and have accepted their financial aid awards. Students will be approved for housing only after all related financial obligations have been met.
Students will register for courses through the regular registration processes at Edison State Community College. Edison will maintain student records for PASS Partnership students until they matriculate to Wright State University. The institutions will work together to develop a secure, efficient process of information/data interchange.
Financial aid will be available at the institution where the student is enrolled in classes. Wright State University will assist Edison State Community College in determining the appropriate housing and fee allowance to be factored into its estimated cost of attendance. Applications for scholarships will be available at the institution where the student is enrolled in classes.
