"Got accepted into the Grad Degree program and hired for a UT job, and then experienced MONTHS of frustration with the bureaucrats who insisted on me completing non-existent forms, demanding that I travel for in-person meetings, and then "Oops we forgot you need one more form". I had to drive hours to go in for an appointment at the business office, parked in the spaces marked VISITOR-- and got a parking ticket! then had to spend time tracking down the person at the school who would clear it. They never did send me a parking pass as promised, so when I moved to Toledo I just parked off campus and hiked in every day. Then after several months, UT suddenly required that I access the SLATE system for more absolutely essential forms! This was a system which I didn't get login info for and was apparently new because people couldn't tell me anything about it. I spent many frustrating hours sending emails to track down how to get access, contacting people and going into different offices begging for help but no one knew anything helpful about it -- apparently only one person had access to it? and this guy didn't have a proper way to contact them! I couldn't get paid for my job until I finished the forms that were only in this system and also couldn't pay my tuition fees, and then because I didn't log in before a deadline, I had to pay a Late penalty. I don't have the time or energy to contest the penalty, so I'll have to eat ramen for a few months. Be aware that if you come to this school your new hobby/part time job will be filling out forms, trying to figure out what the bureaucrats require, and wasting your time talking to lots of nice people who cannot help in any way. Just the most frustrating and mind-boggling incompetency; it's a circle of Hell and like being in a fluorescent lit movie about office life. I'm hoping the education will be worth it-- the teachers are great so far."

"One time a teacher told me I was stupid and that's why I was having a hard time in class. There's absolutely no parking even though it's largely a commuter college and they rob you if you're outside of the parking. Also they changed the rules so that you can't park for free during off hours anymore. The staff is rude, Rocket Hall is always overwhelmed and doesn't help. The advisors for the business college have no clue what they're doing. They offer a bachelor's in Paralegal Studies, they boast in the hallway about how it's a fast growing field but it's not a job for anyone who's serious about their career. What I mean to say is, they lie to students to get them to sign up for useless degrees."

"I graduated just over a year ago and the program was atrocious. I breezed through with a 4.0 with minimal effort. To clarify my gpa is not a result of my commitment to the program and educational achievements, instead it is a result of a program that is unchallenging. An average performing middle school student could achieve a degree in social work from this program. Instructors have no drive for teaching and the program is an embarrassment. Do yourself a favor and go to a reputable program."

  • Degree: Criminal Justice
"University of Toledo's criminal justice program is one centered around the students and their future goals, but tends to overlook some minor facets of the student population. With the majority of the criminal justice students planning to work in law enforcement, probation, or parole, the classes tend to focus on these kids yet for students like me, who want to go to law school, we didn't receive as much guidance."

"Even though I was a transfer student at the University of Toledo, I instantly fell in love with the school and the criminal justice program. The program can be taken entirely on campus, online, or a blend of both which makes it super helpful to work around busy schedules. Once you're able to register for the higher level electives, there is such a wide range of courses you can take that focus on so many of the different fields in criminal justice."

"Its not always easy however it is totally worth it. You will love the professors. Most of them will go over and beyond to help you with what you need. They have a bunch of school activities for you to participate in. Definitely get out there and network with people. Or else you will regret it in the long run. The school is costly so definitely apply for scholarship. They have tutors that you can meet with to get help on you class work."

  • Degree: Psychology
"Be ready to write papers almost every week, but you will eventually get so good at it that it won't even feel like a burden anymore. All of the courses you get to take are super interesting. Some I took that I really enjoyed were Psychology and the law, cognitive psychology, biopsychology, abnormal psychology, and much more. Be sure to join a research lab to get more experience. This will also look really good on resumes when applying to graduate school."

"I can say as a graduate student at one of the largest universities in the country, that I have felt incredibly prepared by the University of Toledo and specifically, my program and professors as they have provided me with a very solid grounding to be successful in my current schoolwork. For the most part, the campus and facilities are updated, though parking is very difficult to find and there isn't tons to do, socially speaking in the area surrounding the campus."

"The University of Toledo truly set me up for great success. I am forever grateful for the individuals that I met during my time there. The professors are individuals that still are some of my closest mentors that are "in my corner" when needed. I have been able to reach out to them at any time or day and they are willing to help me , whatever it may be; writing recommendation letters, meeting up for coffee to catch up, and help to challenge me. While it is a larger school, I felt such individual attention, that helped me to not feel lost at the school. The pride that the University has for the students is something that is felt, and the pride I have to be a Rocket is one that I will always have."

  • Degree: Counseling
"I did not have a close relationship with my advisor not for lack of trying, but scheduling conflict for the advisor. As a person that value diversity, I did not see that much in the program, curriculum, or faculty and it's important to be exposed to diversity in an academic setting when the populations we may potentially work with may reflect various backgrounds. I made great connections with classmates more so than anything else. Some of the courses that were on campus may have been more effective online and vice versa such as the Statistics class. That class would be beneficial in a classroom setting and the assessments possibly online since as counselors some of the assessments we learn about we can't use. Overall, I wish I would have looked into the program more to know if it was an appropriate fit for me."

  • Degree: Environmental Science
"The University of Toledo was a great institution for me to begin my career in academia. The course offerings are broad, and gives students the ability to choose which skills they want to learn and master. Within my degree program (Environmental Science), the faculty are eager to provide students with research opportunities and often provide students with funding to do interesting research. I was given funding to conduct international research, and this experience greatly impacted my current research trajectory. If you are considering a career in the field of environmental science, I'd recommend applying to the University of Toledo. The cost of tuition/housing is low compared to similar schools, and the university is a close drive to major US cities for weekend trips."

"It was overall easy to use online systems for scheduling classes and track personal progress without constantly needing to check with an advisor. However, when you do need to meet with an advisor its a bit of a pain so schedule very early on in the semester and cancel if no longer needed vs. waiting and then not making a cut off because you had not meet with an advisor yet."

  • Degree: Biomedical Sciences
"My degree program greatly impacted my understanding of the medical sciences and helped me prepare for medical school. It was not easy, and it took many days and nights of studying, but it definitely paid off in the end. The teachers are accommodating to your needs and schedule, and are willing to assist you with any problems or concerns you may have. I talked to them many times in the beginning of the semester in order to figure out the best ways of studying. I would visit them less frequently throughout the semester but that was only because I did not need their assistance as much as I did in the beginning. The research project was difficult, I will admit that, but my mentor gave me tips to help lessen some of the burden and my worries. Also, the librarians are very helpful if you have any concerns or questions about research or obtaining an article; their help was appreciated tremendously. Overall, I would rate my experience as satisfactory, even if I did struggle at times and stressed out on more than one occasion."

"The UT campus is very beautiful and active in the summer and fall. There is plenty of activities both on and off campus to keep you busy with a diverse group of people. Most professors are very good, or try their best, keeping a general interest in their students. There isn't much that i honestly would say needs drastically improved. The university is a great place for someone who really wants an excellent education."

"Staff was helpful. There was one professor who challenged students and made his class difficult, but as long as you could write papers and attended class, it was not too challenging. I would recommend getting involved in professor's projects outside of class as those are excellent learning opportunities."
