Cleveland State Fall Registration Now Open

Thursday, July 25, 2013

Registration for fall semester at Cleveland State Community College is going on now until August 22 for all students.

The last day to submit applications for degree seeking students is Friday, August 16, and classes for the fall semester will begin on Saturday, August 24. The deadline for submitting financial aid documents is Friday, July 26.

Cleveland State offers a wide variety of programs including four Associate of Arts options, three Associate of Science options, and seven Associate of Applied Science options with 24 concentrations, and 23 technical certificates. There are a number of different scheduling options for working adults, as well as the ADVANCE program, the Regent’s Online Degree Program (RODP), and programs for veterans.  

In addition to traditional day and evening classes, there are many distance learning options available to Cleveland State students, including online and independent study courses.

Another option for the fall semester is block scheduling, a convenient option that allows students to attend classes with the same group of students with a pre-determined class schedule for an entire year.

First-time students, who are seeking a degree or a certificate, readmit and transfer students must participate in the New Student Online Orientation process and attend a New Student Advising and Registration session held at CSCC in order to register for the fall semester. These sessions are held prior to each fall and spring semester and are designed to familiarize students with the services, resources, and programs available at CSCC. During these sessions, students will be able to register for classes, speak to an advisor, and tour the campus.

For more information about fall registration or to view a schedule of classes, please visit or contact the Enrollment Services Center at 472-7141, ext. 310.
