In brief: Not very

Wellbutrin (bupropion) does lower seizure threshold.
However at recommended doses, the seizure risk is actually similar to other antidepressants. I would be cautious if you are taking something else that could also decrease seizure threshold as well, such as alcohol.

Wellbutrin at dose over 450 mg. daily can increase the risk.
