Office of New Student Orientation Programs


Congratulations on your acceptance to The University of Toledo! 

We are very excited that you have chosen to pursue your education at UT. Our goal is to ensure that you have the necessary tools and information to successfully begin your educational journey. The first step towards success begins with orientation!

Rocket Launch is a one-day, mandatory orientation program for new students.  Students are able to bring a maximum of two guests to the program.  During the program, you will have the opportunity to meet with your academic adviser, register for courses, complete procedural details such as obtaining your Rocket Card (student ID), and learn about the many educational opportunities that UT offers both inside and outside of the classroom.

Make sure you carefully read all information on this website, which will guide you through the Rocket Launch program registration process. You are not finished with the process until you have completed the following steps:

  1. Activate your UTAD account.
  2. Complete pre-orientation modules in the online orientation reservation system on the New Student Tab in the myUT Portal prior to registering for a Rocket Launch (orientation) program date. 
  3. Register for a Rocket Launch program date through the online orientation reservation link on the New Student Tab in the myUT Portal.
  4. Complete all required placement tests prior to attending Rocket Launch. 
  5. Submit a photo online to obtain Student ID (Rocket Card).
  6. Review Treasurer Office Forms (FERPA Consent, Title IV Consent, Transfer Excess Financial Aid to the Rocket Card, Direct Deposit Authorization) located on the New Student Tab in the myUT Portal.
  7. Pay Enrollment Deposit (Direct from High School students ONLY) and Pay the Housing Deposit before attending Rocket Launch. (Those students living on campus) The Enrollment/Housing Deposit link is located on the New Student Tab.
    1. Failure to Pay the Enrollment/Housing Deposit before attending Rocket Launch WILL PREVENT the student from registering for courses at Rocket Launch.
  8. Attend a Rocket Launch (one-day orientation program).
On behalf of The University of Toledo campus community, we welcome you and look forward to meeting you at Rocket Launch. Please feel free to call the Office of New Student Orientation Programs at 419.530.1267 or toll-free at 877.752.0005 if you have any questions.
