International Admissions

FAQ: After Acceptance

I was admitted. Now what do I do?

After you have received confirmation that you were admitted to CSU, please wait for a Welcome Packet to be emailed to you. In this packet you will receive your Welcome letter that will also give you information about arrival, housing, and orientation. Once the I20 is processed you will be emailed about how to register for your visa appointment and express mailing options.

How do I transfer to Cleveland State University? I have an I-20 from another university?
In order for Cleveland State University to issue you a new I20, you must contact your current school and request them to release your I20 to Cleveland State.

How do I ask an urgent immigration question?
