Student & Graduate Reviews

4.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Education
Graduation Year: 2019

I am currently working on my master's in health sciences. As a full time mom, employee, and student, this master's program is completely offered online. I am able to complete all work assignments, while taking care of my family. If you are seeking for a graduate program that allows you to continue the current life that you are living, l highly recommend Cleveland State University. They have many graduate degrees that are fully or partially offered online. This was one of the best academic decisions that l have made.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2018

This program teaches real life application in a realistic setting. The program is responsive to students needs and offers great networking and internships in the local community. The campus could improve on safety. This college offers an evening program that is flexible for students who work. The scholarships are generous but hard to maintain.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

My experience with CSU Counseling program has been a real journey of self-development. The faculty don't just teach students theories and techniques; there's a large focus on self-reflection as both a clinician and a person. One area for improvement might be the lack of variety in elective courses. There's a Counseling and Spirituality class and a new Counseling LGBT Clients class so I think they're trying to develop a larger offering, but at the moment it could be better.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2017

One of the main things I love about Cleveland State University is the diversity. Its like having over hundred countries on one campus, which is beyond priceless. No only are the in-state residents hospitable and friendly, they are also willing to lend a helping hand when needed.
3.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012

The business school facility is excellent, very modern and clean and in a good location for commuting from outside Cleveland, as well as accessing other on-campus resources. I do feel that many of the core courses could challenge students a little more, in the way that the capstone strategy course does, but nonetheless the educational opportunities are great.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2010

It's. Great school to grow your knowledge while also continuing to work full time. Very reasonable price compared to other area schools.
3.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2006

It is wonderful college with full of resources. The engineering department has very good programs.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2006

It was a good program. I attended when the program was relatively new. I learned a great deal, but because it was a Master's Program it focused mostly on theories. I wish it was more hands on.
4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I had an opportunity to be educated through Cleveland State University's Education department with the concentration of Sport Management. Under this program I was engrained with the knowledge necessary to pursue a career in athletic administration or management. The program helped develop my research ability through many rigorous courses and broadened my scope of understanding culturally sensitive issues as it pertains to sport attendance and participation. With Dr. Lam as the chair and Dr. Patterson as the Dean of Education it was a tough road because these two professors expect excellence from their students. Dr. Lam is always available, spending many late nights on campus assisting students with research, proposals and IRB requirements for Doctorate programs. Dr. Patterson always welcomes all her students with a heartfelt smile and will do everything that she can to assist you in graduation and beyond. I would wholeheartedly recommend anyone to go through his program if they are looking to grow in the sports administration field.
4.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2010

Cleveland State University is a great school with an excellent business program that has been accredited by AACSB. Offers a wide range of classes to accommodate all types of students with convenient classes on line and in class. In state tuition is most comparable to other colleges and the school also offers payment plans to students to make school more affordable.
