The CSU Viking Welcome Page

Welcome to Cleveland State University!

CSU is a University on the rise and it’s an exciting time to become a student.

We’ve created this site to help you start your CSU experience off on the right foot. Bookmark this page and reference it often as it contains anything and everything you’ll need to know about attending CSU before your first day of classes.

Remember – your first step to become an official CSU student is to notify the University of your intent to enroll.  To do so, simply log on to CampusNet, click on the Applicant tab and choose "Yes" to accept your admission.


If you are admitted as a freshman, you must pay the enrollment fee to save your spot at CSU. Once you have accepted your admission to CSU, you can pay the $120 fee online by logging on to your CampusNet account, navigating to the Applicant Tab and selecting the Enrollment Fee button. Your enrollment fee covers orientation for you and up to two guests and your Viking ID card. We recommend paying early to get the best dates for orientation. We will offer refunds until May 1. Students who have limited financial resources and meet the NACAC requirements may request that the fee be deferred until the beginning of the fall semester.
