A first-class First-Year Experience

At The University of Toledo, we are committed to our students' success in and outside the classroom.

We developed the First-Year Experience Program, which provides special resources and programming aimed specifically at first-year students, because we know students who are successful in the first year are much more likely to do well academically and socially, and to graduate from college.

We're proud that we recently joined 19 four-year colleges and universities in a national higher education project, "Foundations of Excellence in the First College Year," to improve the support and education we provide students.

We invite you to learn more about our programs and see what a difference our First-Year Experience can make.
