Cristina Sanchez Wayton
Director, Undergraduate Admissions and Student Transition

Welcome to Cleveland State University! I am pleased that you are considering CSU in your college search. In the Admissions Office, we want to support your exploration of all that CSU has to offer. We've assigned an admissions counselor to your school or area so that you have a direct contact who can answer all of your questions and assist you with the application process. Why not reach out and introduce yourself if you haven't already?

It's a great time to be a CSU student. Our students benefit from CSU's prime location in the heart of the city, thousands of internships and co-ops, robust student organizations and athletics and nationally-recognized academics and support services. I love calling CSU "home," and I hope you will too!

CSU is an amazing urban institution located in the heart of a major U.S. city. The faculty and staff are passionate about every student’s success while they matriculate here at CSU. Engaged learning is more than just a tagline, it is an array of endless opportunities both inside and out of the classroom with real-life experiences. With over 175 academic programs in 10 colleges, our students take advantage of more than 3,000 internships and co-ops each year.

I focus on high schools within the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, Mahoning County and Southeast Ohio counties.
