Multiterm registration at Cleveland State University is making headlines on Inside Higher Ed, a leading online source for news about higher education.
“Cleveland State University’s new strategy to get students to degree completion faster is a pretty simple idea that’s surprisingly uncommon: students are allowed (and encouraged) to register for an entire year’s worth of courses before the fall semester,” writes reporter Allie Grasgreen.
Starting with the 2012-2013 academic year, CSU became the first state university in Ohio – and one of the few in the nation – to offer multiterm registration, which allows students to plan their entire academic year in advance.
“This is a real navigational tool for students,” CSU President Ronald M. Berkman told Inside Higher Ed. “The more tools that we can find to help students navigate, the more success we’re going to have.”
