Next Steps: How to Apply



Meet Lydia Marentette

Class of 2021, political science; current master's student in Public Administration
Transferred from Rutgers University midway through her junior year

"I was unhappy academically and with my new coach for crew. I was home for Christmas break and didn't want to go back. Robyn in the transfer office was a lifesaver. She worked a miracle for me. Everyone was so patient with me. At UToledo, I built more than a surface relationships with professors. Dr. Jami Taylor was one of my favorites and introduced me to the M.P.A. program. I ended up doing an additional year of undergrad because I switched majors, but I was admitted early to the M.P.A. program and was able to take 12 graduate credit hours for the undergrad price."

Lydia works as a mayor's assistant for the City of Toledo's Dept. Of Neighborhoods.


Meet Giovanni Baiocco

Class of 2022, professional sales
Transferred from Henry Ford Community College, Dearborn

"I wasn't sure what I wanted to do after high school. So I decided to go to community college, take my general education classes, save money and transfer to a four-year college. I visited UToledo and found out the business college was highly ranked. I talked to a transfer specialist who was super helpful. Most of my credits transferred, and I was admitted to the Exploratory Studies program in University College. I had a year's worth of general ed classes to do. I will be here for three years instead of two, but I probably wouldn't have found the sales program without that extra year. My business classes integrate real-world experiences and gave me the skills to get my internship. I was the top summer intern at Northwestern Mutual in Toledo and one of the top interns in the country. I have no doubt the skills I learned at UToledo contributed to my internship success."
