Cleveland State University

Founded in 1964, Cleveland State University is a public research institution with over 17,000 students, 10 colleges and schools and more than 175 academic programs.


Our dynamic campus in the heart of downtown Cleveland continues to evolve. Engaged Learning connects CSU students with 3,000 co-ops, internships and other experiential learning opportunities with employers in virtually every industry, ensuing they graduate fully prepared to succeed in their chosen professions.


CSU has strengthened its ties to Cleveland through a series of forward-thinking partnerships. Campus International School and MC2STEM High School provide pathways to college for young people, by way of the Education Park that CSU has created with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. CSU serves unmet health-care needs in our community through the Partnership for Urban Health. CSU has teamed up with Case Western Reserve University to lead the way in evolving the internet of things.


Cleveland State is championing an educational environment and experience committed to access, opportunity and excellence. Our student-success initiatives save time and money for students. The average CSU graduate’s debt is nearly $2,000 below the state average, and CSU’s average student debt per borrower is the second lowest among Ohio public universities.
