Project 60

The Project 60 Program enables any Ohio resident, age 60 or older, to enroll in classes at Cleveland State University on a tuition-free, space-available basis. Students are responsible for purchasing their own textbooks, paying lab fees, transportation, paying for parking, and any other special fees.


  • Classes are taken on an audit basis.
  • Students cannot earn credit toward a degree with courses taken through the Project 60 program.
  • Project 60 students may not take both degree seeking and Project 60 classes during the same semester.
  • If you wish to earn a degree or credits toward a degree, please visit our Undergraduate Admissions Office or call 216.687.5411.
  • Project 60 students are bound by the Student Code of Conduct.
  • Many CSU classes are open to registration for Project 60 students every semester but a Project 60 student may be denied registration for a class, for instance if the instructor has not given permission or if the student does not meet class pre- or co-requisites.  See the Special Permission section on the Course Enrollment page for more information.
