Cleveland State University (CSU) warmly welcomes Notre Dame College (NDC) students seeking to complete their degree programs as part of our Teach-Out agreement with NDC. At CSU, you'll find yourself supported by a university that welcomes transfer students with open arms. 

CSU is committed to providing all students in good standing with 60+ credits who are transferring for the Summer 2024 or Fall 2024 semester from NDC in equivalent degree programs with:

  • guaranteed admission for NDC students in good standing, with no application fees
  • a waiver of minimum enrollment requirements and credit requirements as transfer students
  • 100% transfer of all credits granted or accepted as transfer by NDC, including graduate credits
  • pathways to graduation that will allow you to complete your program in a comparable timeframe (or sooner) as was possible at NDC
  • a net cost to complete courses and other requirements to graduate comparably or less than what the student would pay at NDC

CSU offers many of the degree programs offered by NDC, and we will work with you to develop a pathway to degree completion!
