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.
