Rocket Launch Schedule and Dates

Virtual Rocket Launch Process

Virtual Rocket Launch includes three steps that must be completed to meet your orientation requirement.

Online Orientation Modules

On May 15, all students who registered for a Rocket Launch date received an email with a unique link access to the online orientation modules. Any student who registered after May 15 will receive the link in their confirmation email once they register for a Rocket Launch session.

The modules include information on campus resources, support services, and the class registration system, and the entire online program must be completed prior to receiving an academic advising appointment. 

You must complete your online orientation modules as soon as possible, in order to receive an advising appointment. You may also have to fill out a college advising survey to receive an appointment. Be sure to check your Rockets email for more details! 

Academic Advising and Registration

Upon completion of online orientation, your academic advisor will contact you within a few business days (Monday through Friday) to make an appointment for advising and class registration. Note that you may also have to complete your college advising survey sent to your Rockets email in order to receive an appointment. 

Rocket Launch Small Group Meeting

On your Rocket Launch date (the date you select in the orientation reservation system), students will participate in a virtual small group meeting from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. with other new students, Orientation Leaders and Success Coaches.

Small groups will be held in Blackboard Collaborate, UToledo's online course management system, and you will receive log in information the day before your session.

Rocket Launch Dates

You will see an updated list of available dates when you log in to the reservation system. Small groups will be held online from 3 - 5 p.m. on the dates listed in the reservation system, and registration is required to attend these sessions.

If you are unable to attend any of the listed small group sessions, you may register for the session listed as "Online Orientation for Direct from High School Students." This session will not include a small group, but once you register for this session, you will receive an email with the link to access the online orientation modules.
