Parent Connection

Hello CSU Parents and Family Members!

With Fall semester just around the corner, this edition of the Parent Connection provides you with helpful dates and information regarding your student’s transition to Cleveland State. The end of July is a busy time for students as they start to prepare for the reality of attending college. While your student will receive emails regarding these important CSU items, here are a few things that you can expect: roommate assignments and move-in information mailed, tuition and fees posted on CampusNet (don’t forget that bills are no longer mailed), and parking passes available for purchase.

If you have any questions, please contact our Orientation staff at 216.687.9379. Any questions regarding tuition and financial aid should be directed to our Campus411 staff at 216.687.5411.

In August, you will receive the “Back to School” edition of the Parent Connection. This will include information on the start of Fall classes and events occurring throughout campus. Also, please visit our New Vikings website for important dates and events: This site will be updated throughout the summer.

I wish you a wonderful summer and best of luck for the start of the Fall semester!

Abbey Shiban
Manager, Orientation and Family Services
