The Cleveland Transfer Connection Program

Navigating the path to your future can be confusing. There are so many decisions: Which college do I choose? Where are my friends going to school? Am I ready for a large campus? Are my grades strong enough? What can I afford?

The Cleveland Transfer Connection (CTC) at Tri-C and Cleveland State University is a Learning Communities program designed to help you answer those questions and provide a path designed with you in mind. When you begin your college career in one of the six CTC Learning Communities, you will automatically be pursuing two degrees as part of a cohort of students who have the same interests.

The Cleveland Transfer Connection is a program unique to Cleveland because it provides services from two dynamic institutions and offers two degrees (an Associate’s and a Bachelor’s) in one community of students.

Cleveland Transfer Connection:
  • Strengthens your academic skills to make your college career more successful.
  • Helps you navigate the admissions, scheduling and advising/counseling processes.
  • Offers classes on both campuses, providing more campus life experiences.
  • Takes learning beyond the traditional classroom into the city of Cleveland.
  • Provides a support system of peers and Peer Mentor Coaches.
  • Enables you to receive two degrees seamlessly on two campuses.

Why Should I Join a Learning Community?

More students are joining Learning Communities at colleges around the country and are finding college life more enjoyable and successful. Their grades are higher, they are more connected to their campuses, and they are more engaged in their classes. Learning Communities work because they

  • Connect all of your classes so you may have a better grasp of the material.
  • Reserve smaller classes so you have more interaction with your instructors.
  • Extend classes into the community with field trips and service learning.
  • Provide additional advising and support with a staff dedicated to you.
  • Provide opportunities for using various technologies.
* This program is made possible through a Title III Grant award from the United States Department of Education. For more information call CSU: 216-687-5413 or Tri-C: 216-987-4654.
