POST SECONDARY ENROLLMENT OPTIONS PROGRAM
Orientation Topics for 2012/2013 academic school year
Orientation Programs: All PSEOP students who plan to attend The University of Toledo after high school graduation are required to attend Rocket Launch (New Student Orientation). You will receive mailings in the spring regarding Rocket Launch. If you have any questions concerning orientation, please contact the Orientation office at 419.530.1267.
ID (Rocket Card): ID cards can be ordered through the myUT portal, and picked up in the MyPICs office, located in Rocket Hall, room 1917. There is a $35 fee for the ID card. This fee is NOT covered by PSEO; therefore, the ID fee is the student’s responsibility. This fee will automatically be applied to your student account. The MyPICs office can be contacted at 419.530.5843. Fee amount is subject to change for fall semester, 2012.
Books: PSEOP students must return their books during exam week of the semester they are taking classes. Failure to do so will result in a hold being placed on the student’s account for those books not returned. All policies and steps to be taken concerning book returns will be given to the students in a handout at orientation and covered in detail.
Supplies: Supplies are the financial responsibility of each student. This includes any computer software or additional materials required for the course (e.g., art supplies, etc.)
Add/Drop Period: If students are going to add or drop a class they must contact a PSEOP adviser before or during the add/drop period. Students may not add or drop a class without the PSEOP adviser’s knowledge. Instructors’ signatures are required to add a class from August 25-31. Students cannot add a class after August 31. The last day to drop a class is September 3. For Spring semester, instructors’ signatures are required to add a class from January 12-18. Students cannot add a class after January 18. The last day to drop a class is January 21. ** Drops will be processed according to university policy. If students drop a class and do not replace the class with an equal number of credit hours, they will be billed for that class according to UT’s drop fee policy. Contact your PSEOP adviser for information on the drop policy. The Ohio Department of Education will be billed for the charges incurred.
Withdrawal: Students can withdraw from a class after the add/drop period ends. Students must contact a PSEOP adviser prior to withdrawing from a class. A “W” will appear on your college transcripts, and may impact your ability to receive financial aid for college. The last day to withdraw from a class for the fall semester is October 26. The last day to withdraw from a class for the spring semester is March 22, 2013. ** IMPORTANT NOTE: If a student withdraws from a class at UT, the high school (public school students) or state of Ohio (private school students) has the right to bill the student for that class. Students will need to contact their high school guidance counselor or State of Ohio concerning the amount they will be billed.
Failing grade: If students receive a grade of “F” the high school (public school students) or state of Ohio (private school students) has the right to bill students for tuition reimbursement.
Semester start up dates: Fall 2012 classes will begin on Monday, August 20. Spring 2013 classes will begin on Monday, January 7.
Selective Service: Males must register for selective service on their 18th birthday. If UT does not have verification that you are registered for selective service, you will be billed out-of-state fees for all classes you have taken as a PSEOP student. You can register for selective service through your area post office or through the internet at: www.sss.gov/
White stripes – students
Yellow stripes – faculty/staff

Parking Permits: All students have the option of purchasing a parking permit through the myUT web portal (myut.utoledo.edu). Permits are $125 per semester, and are NOT covered by PSEO; therefore, payment is the responsibility of the student. If you receive a parking ticket, you have the right to appeal. To appeal a fine, visit the Transportation Center. To pay a parking ticket, go to the Payment Depository box across from the PSEOP office in Rocket Hall. PSEOP students are generally issued “K” permits, and can park in lots 3, 4, 5, 18, 20 and the east ramp.
Class load at UT and your high school: PSEOP students are limited to a maximum of 12 credit hours per semester. Students are responsible for checking with their high school after registering for classes at UT. If a student’s schedule is adjusted at UT, additional class time may be required at the student’s high school. Athletes must maintain a course load that will meet athletic eligibility at their high school.
Scholarships: PSEOP students who intend to enroll at The University of Toledo upon high school graduation must contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions by December 1 of their senior year. ACT or SAT scores are required to be considered for all UT scholarships and must be submitted by Dec 1.
G.P.A requirements: Students must maintain a semester 2.0 grade point average to remain active in the PSEOP program. There are no exceptions to this policy and it will be strictly enforced. Those students with less than a 2.0 semester g.p.a. will be notified by letter that they no longer qualify to remain in the PSEOP program at UT. A letter will also be sent to their high school guidance counselor.
Registration holds: Registration holds are put on student accounts for the following reasons: parking tickets, library fines, lab breakage, and overdue accounts. Transcripts will not be sent to your high school if a registration hold is on your account. This could affect your graduation. It is imperative that any holds be cleared from your account as soon as possible. Registration holds will also keep a student from registering for the next term.
Grades: Option A will not affect your high school grade point average. Grades received under this option are a permanent part of the student’s college transcript only. Option B class grades become a part of your high school and college transcripts.
Placement tests: Placement tests are required for chemistry, math, and foreign language courses. Please see your PSEOP advisor for more information on placement testing.
Honors classes: PSEOP students are not permitted to take Honors courses.
Distance Learning classes: PSEOP students are allowed to take distance learning classes, with the exception of English.

Examples are: ENGL 1110, Composition I; PHIL 2200, Introduction to Philosophy; MATH 1850, Calculus I. You must meet the prerequisite of any class you plan to register for.
Remedial classes: PSEOP students are not permitted to take remedial or developmental courses. Classes must be in the 1000 level or higher. If PSEOP students want to take an English class, they must be 16 years old and have a 20 on the English portion of the ACT or a 3.0 GPA in order to take ENGL 1110.
Class attendance: Students are required to attend all class sessions. Professors should be contacted if you are going to miss a class. If your absence will be extended, contact your PSEOP adviser as well as your professor. Keep in mind that if your high school is not in session because of conferences, fog/snow days, spring break, etc., The University of Toledo will still be open. You are expected to attend your UT classes on those days.
Registration: PSEOP students MAY NOT use the “myUT web portal” without the specific approval of your PSEOP adviser. All class registrations, add/drops, and withdrawals must take place in the office of the PSEOP adviser.

Withdrawing from the PSEOP program: If, for any reason, you withdraw from the PSEOP program and you have received your books, they must be returned. Books must be returned to the Post-Secondary office located in Rocket Hall 1400 so that your account can be credited. You must have your book receipt to return any book to the bookstore, therefore, keep your receipts when purchasing your books for the current semester.
Directory Information: All students can control the release of this information by logging onto the myUT-web portal at: myut.utoledo.edu. Follow appropriate sub links to your “personal information page.” You will have the choice to select either setting: 1) No restriction or 2) Do not release outside the University. The initial default setting in the system is set to “No restriction.”
Legal Services: All students are automatically assessed a $10 fee per semester for access to legal services if necessary. Students are responsible for this fee unless they waive it through the myUT portal.
Health Insurance: All students registered for six or more credit hours are automatically enrolled in the university’s health insurance plan. You may waive it by going to the “myUT web portal” and following the prompts to enter your own health insurance information. Additional information can be found at www.utoledo.edu/healthservices/student/health_insurance/index.html.
Bills: UT does not send out bills. Students must check their account balance through the myUT portal, under “My Account”. You are responsible for your ID ($35), your parking permit if you order one ($125 per semester), and the legal service fee if you do not waive it ($10). It is important that you pay your bill by the due date to avoid late payment fees.
UTAD account: To activate your UTAD account go to: myutaccount.utoledo.edu and enter your Social Security number and your birthdate (format: MM/DD/YYYY). Your myUT username and Rocket number (student ID number) will appear on the left-hand side of the screen.

myUT portal: You must have activated your UTAD account to access this site. To access the myUT portal go to: myut.utoledo.edu. With access to the myUT portal you can register for classes, view your student account information, waive health insurance, adjust your schedule, view grades, and more.
Program Restrictions: Post Secondary students are restricted from participating in UT student organizations, student activities, Greek Life, and collegiate athletics. The only exceptions are admittance to University sports events or use of the University Recreation Center. Students may take advantage of academically related services on campus such as the Learning Enhancement Center or Career Services. Students may also participate in high school athletics, as long as the student meets the requirements of his/her school district.
Because the Post Secondary Enrollment Options Program is a state-sponsored program, students are not permitted to take Religion courses.
In addition, certain courses may contain adult-themed content not suitable for students under 18. ANTH 2100 is one such course, and post-secondary students are not permitted to enroll for this course.
