Graduate Student Orientation

The College of Graduate Studies is pleased to present an online orientation for incoming graduate students. The purpose of orientation is to acquaint new students with available university services and resources, current policies and procedures, registration information, and general information about the university. We hope the virtual orientation process will greatly enhance and simplify your graduate experience at the University of Toledo.

The video portion of the online orientation below is mandatory for completion of the orientation requirement. We recommend that you begin by reviewing the information in the ‘Getting Started’ checklist and then access the videos, audio presentations, and other on-line information.

When you are finished with your orientation, please click the red ‘Verfiy' button to enter your name and rocket number. Please be sure to click the submit button to record your completion. You will receive a confirmation e-mail for your records. It is not necessary to submit this to the Graduate College Office. We will automatically receive notification when you have completed this program. Lastly, please take a few minutes to complete the online evaluation. We value your feedback!
