Office of New Student Orientation Programs

Welcome New Rockets!

Your first step in the orientation process is Rocket Transition orientation. During Rocket Transition, you’ll meet your campus support system and other new Rockets, be introduced to the resources to help you succeed as a Rocket, and will enroll in classes for your first semester. 

Orientation Registration

Orientation registration for all adult and transfer students entering UToledo in fall 2023 opens on March 1, 2023 in your New Rocket Portal. For transfer and adult students starting classes in summer 2023, orientation registration will open on February 1, 2023. 

Keep an eye out for an email with the link to register for orientation sent to the email address you used to apply to UToledo!

If you want to change your major, please inform the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at 419.530.8888 or 800.5TOLEDO before registering for an orientation date. 

It is best to access spring orientation registration from your Next Steps email sent from Admissions. However, you can register for orientation by clicking the "Register for Orientation" button below and signing in using the email address and password you used to apply to UToledo. If you do not have an application account or do not remember your password, choose "Forgot Password" and enter the email address you used to apply and your date of birth.

Program Options and Dates

Adult and transfer students have two options to complete their orientation requirement:

  • In person sessions
  • On demand online modules

In Person Sessions

Please note: these dates are for adult and transfer students only! Students coming directly from high school must log into the reservation system to view their date options in June and July. 

  • Friday April 14, 2023 from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (register by April 7 at 9:00 a.m.)
  • Friday May 26, 2023 from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (register by May 19 at 9:00 a.m.)
  • Friday July 14, 2023 from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (register by July 7 at 9:00 a.m.)

If you select the in person orientation option, be prepared to be on campus for the entire time of your session.  During your orientation session, you will meet other incoming students, learn about campus resources, and meet with an academic advisor to register for classes. 

More information will be sent to students and their registered guests one week before their session, including the schedule for the program. 

Online Modules

If you select the online modules, you will be sent a link to complete the modules once you submit your reservation. You will know you've completed the modules when you see " You've Completed Your Online Orientation" above your name. The online modules take approximately one hour to complete and your orientation hold will be removed within one business day of completing the modules.

Once you have completed your orientation requirement, you may contact an academic advisor to register for classes. Students will not be permitted to register for classes until they complete online orientation. 


All new students must pay the orientation fee. For new adult students, the fee is $110, and for new transfer students, the fee is $100. The fee is the same, regardless of which orientation method you register for and must be paid as part of your bill for the semester. The orientation fee covers student staff, cost of programs, and cost of welcome and transition events during the semester. For students who choose to attend orientation in person, the fee also covers the cost of lunch for the student.
