Adult Student Admission

If you never attended college after earning your high school diploma or GED, you are considered an adult student. You could be 18 years old or 40 years old.

UToledo has programs to accommodate you wherever you are on your path ― whether you want to continue working or devote yourself full time to your studies.

  • Flexible online and on-campus degrees
  • Part-time and full-time options
  • Night classes
  • Credit for life experience
  • Scholarships and financial aid

Our team is here to help you navigate the admission process and easily earn your degree.

How to apply as an adult student

1. Review admission requirements.

Be sure to look at the UToledo adult admission requirements and the requirements for your specific degree program, too. You can find your degree requirements in the UToledo undergraduate catalog. Click on your college → Degrees/programs → your degree.

2. Submit online application.

Our simple application is easy to fill out. Keep your password and login handy to check on the progress of your application.

3. Request official high school transcripts.

To process your UToledo application, we need your official high school or official GED transcript.

How to request transcripts
Contact your high school or visit to request your GED transcript and scores.

When requesting a transcript, direct the institution to email it to or mail transcripts to:
The University of Toledo
Office of Undergraduate Admission
Mail Stop 300
2801 West Bancroft Street
Toledo, OH 43606

4. Check your application account and personal email.

You can log back into your application account to check the status of your application. We will notify you of an admission decision within a week of receiving all necessary documents and your application.

We send admission notifications to your personal email. You'll then receive an admission package at your permanent address within a couple weeks. Both communications include next steps to take if you're admitted.

IMPORTANT: You may be admitted to the University but NOT to the college or program to which you applied. For instance, you may not meet the requirements of your requested program. Contact an adult and transfer specialist with questions.
