Purpose of the Catalog

The Undergraduate Catalog is the official source of the university’s undergraduate academic programs, courses, policies, and procedures.  The catalog should be used as a guide, in conjuction with your academic advisor, in planning a course of study and in meeting requirements for graduation.  See the table of contents and index for an overview of the information provided.



This publication is neither a contract nor an offer to make a contract. While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information in this publication, the University reserves the right to make changes at any time with respect to course offerings, degree  requirements, services provided, or any other subject addressed in this publication. The information in this publication is provided solely for the convenience of the reader, and the University expressly disclaims any liability which may otherwise be incurred.

The University reserves the right to amend its rules and regulations within the limits commonly accepted by colleges and universities. Students must keep themselves informed of amendments.

Catalog Rights

Degree candidates are responsible for meeting university graduation requirements stated in the Cleveland State University Catalog for the academic year in which they are admitted to Cleveland State University. These graduation requirements are known as catalog rights. Colleges reserve the right to alter the content of courses, add and delete courses, and change required curricula. It is the student’s responsibility to remain informed about such changes through regular interaction with their adviser in monitoring progress towards graduation. No university official can relieve students of this responsibility.

Students who interrupt their enrollment in the university for one full academic year or longer, consecutively, including summer, must meet the university graduation requirements of the catalog in effect when they return.

In all instances, students who return to Cleveland State University after enrolling at another college or university (except with transient or cross-registration permission) must follow the university graduation requirements of the catalog in effect at the time of their readmission.
