Cuyahoga County

Cleveland State is excited to be a partner with Cuyahoga County for their Employee Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). CSU helps working students advance their careers, enhance their social mobility through education and develop talent to meet the region’s workforce needs.

The County TAP is an education benefit that empowers employees to learn new skills for career success. We help meet individual learners where they are on their education journey through a variety of education and upskilling opportunities.

Getting started is easy!

Step 1: Students new to CSU should apply online at engagecsu.com/apply.

Step 2: Follow instructions to schedule advising appointment and schedule classes.

Step 3: Complete the Cuyahoga County TAP Approval Form (see Cuyahoga County employee intranet site)

Step 4: Upload a copy of your approved Cuyahoga County TAP Approval Form here.


Provide a copy of your transcript to the County to begin the reimbursement process.  Pay the remaining balance on your student account within 4 weeks of the end of the term.

The cost of books, course or material fees are your responsibility.  No penalties will be assessed on your student account throughout the semester as long as your initial payment was received before the first day of class and your final payment is made within 4 weeks of the end of the term.
