Student & Graduate Reviews

4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

This is an excellent program which not only teaches the theory and skills needed for a career in this field but also enables a student to look inside and learn about himself or herself as an individual. I can not think of any cons of the graduate program.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

The graduate program takes a lot of work and effort. The faculty are very involved and are willing to help out in any way they can. The program offers financial assistance in terms of assistant ships which is very helpful because the cost of living is high.
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

The surrounding area of campus is not ideal but the program of Physical Therapy at Cleveland State has been a very beneficial Learning Sanctuary
1.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2012

This school was inexpensive for a Physician Assistant program, but overall the quality fell far below my expectations.
3.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

Challenging, but with great support from faculty members.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The Doctorate of Physical Therapy Program at Cleveland State University has exceeded my expectations. The faculty and adjunct instructors in the program are willing to bend over backwards in order to help meet the students needs. Also, the professional opportunities available to the students is one of a kind with the Cleveland Clinic and University Hospital right down the road and other urban setting facilities. Overall, the atmosphere on campus is on the rise with all the recent and future upgrades in the area. I never thought I would attend Cleveland State University being from the area, but I'm glad I made the choice to continue my education in my hometown.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

At Cleveland State University, the pros outweigh the cons. The pros include a very accessible staff and a very social and diverse student dynamic. Also, the opportunity to get a job works well in my field of public administration in Cleveland as our college is well-connected with the local scene. Public transportation works wonders, as well. I am a student who does not have a car and I find the ability to use public transportation to readily access a wide variety of locations, from the West Side Market to Severance Hall to the suburbs, to be immensely satisfying. The con, I would argue, is that the education seems to be lacking a challenging punch. Of course, professors are ready to supplement your thirst for more knowledge if you ask, so that is an easy, and manageable, situation.

Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program is very challenging, although, not all that different from the upper level undergraduate classes.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The cost is not quite what I expected but there are opportunities to help cover costs
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

CSU has been awesome both for undergrad and graduate study. There is tons to do on campus, accessible parking, good security. I've loved my entire CSU experience.
