Rocket Express

Dual Admission Program

Rocket Express is a partnership between Owens Community College and The University of Toledo. It is designed to provide you a seamless pathway to a bachelor’s degree while also decreasing the time to degree completion. The University of Toledo offers the most diverse range of collegiate academic programs in the Northwest Ohio region. As a UToledo student, you can choose from any of 140 undergraduate majors and programs. UToledo offers nationally ranked professional programs in business, engineering, and law, and health science programs including physical and occupational therapy, nursing, pharmacy and medicine. For decades, The University of Toledo and Owens Community College have worked together to make the process of transitioning from Owens to UToledo as smooth as possible for students. With Rocket Express, this process is now easier than ever.
