The following admission requirements apply to students who have taken college coursework since graduating from high school, regardless of whether or not any credit was earned.
To be considered for the Honors Program, new transfer students must complete the Honors Program application and be admitted to the University prior to February 28.
Transfer applicants have earned a high school diploma or equivalent (such as a GED) and must have earned at least a 2.0 cumulative grade-point average (GPA) at all previous colleges and universities combined in order to be admitted to Cleveland State University as a degree-seeking student. Students transferring with fewer than 12 semester credits must meet freshman admission requirements and the transfer GPA requirement.
Some academic programs have more selective admission requirements that exceed the minimum admission requirements stated above. Students not meeting these requirements may be considered for pre-admission into one of our academic colleges. In some circumstances, students may be admitted into University Studies.
