Welcome New Rockets
Whether you are the class of 2016, 2018 or 2020, we welcome you.
During your Rocket Launch or Rocket Transition experience you will meet with your academic adviser, register for courses, obtain your Rocket Card (student ID), and learn about the many exciting opportunities that UT offers both inside and outside of the classroom.
Be sure to visit the information tables during your breaks. TRIO SSS will host a table for all Rocket Launch and Rocket Transition dates.
Click here to see a map for the Information Fair. Our table is highlighted in red. You can find us at the Trimble seating area, outside of Ingram Room. If you plan to live on campus, you will visit the Ingram Room during your day-long orientation.
Students planning to apply to the TRIO SSS program should submit their application prior to their Rocket Launch or Rocket Transition date. However, there will be forms available at the table to request that a pre-populated application be emailed to you.
Students who apply during the Summer, will be involved in our online Summer experience. This new program for 2014 Rocket Launch and Rocket Transition students will feature live chats with upperclassmen students and staff, online resources, a financial literacy course, and guidance in making a smooth transition to the University of Toledo.Below, see a collage of our recent activities.
