Degree Completion Programs are intended primarily for adult students with prior college credit, or for community college students who intend to finish the associate’s degree while purposely preparing to complete a bachelor’s degree at Cleveland State University. The Levin College accepts academic and technical credits from regionally accredited institutions. Students may take advantage of the College’s online courses, evening and Saturday classes, and Credit for Life Experience program to facilitate timely completion of the Bachelor’s degree.
Students who have earned Associate of Applied Business (AAB), Associate of Applied Science (AAS) and Associate of Arts (AA) degrees in a number of fields can transfer their technical credits and complete a B.A. in a related area. An official transcript of all post-high school institutions attended must be submitted to:

The Levin College offers programs through the University Partnership at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C), Lorain County Community College (LCCC), and Lakeland Community College (LCC). The partnership program allows students to enroll at the community college to complete lower-division requisite requirements and CSU General Education requirements. They may simultaneously enroll at Cleveland State University and take major field and college requirements.
Application Procedure for Partnership Programs:
As a student in the partnership program, when you complete courses at Tri-C, LCC or LCCC, an official transcript of your grades will be sent to the Cleveland State University Registrar’s Office so that these courses can be added to your CSU record.
All college-level classes graded C- or better will transfer. College-level classes graded D or better will transfer for those holding an Associate of Arts (AA), Associate of Science (AS), or Associate of Applied Business (AAB).
University Partnership students apply for financial aid through Cleveland State University. Each semester a partnership student enrolls at both CSU and the community college, he or she must complete a Consortium Agreement and have it signed by an academic advisor. CSU will take into account the student’s total number of registered hours in awarding aid.
Cleveland State University will not pay tuition to Cuyahoga Community College, Lakeland Community College, or Lorain County Community College; partnership students will need to make arrangements with those institutions for payment of tuition and fees.
The Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs conducts an Assessment and Accreditation of Prior Learning Experience (AAPLE) Program which recognizes that learning takes place in settings other than the classroom and is designed to award academic credit for substantial previous learning experiences. In preparation for receiving this credit, students enroll in a two-credit hour course: UST 190* (Analysis of Experiential Learning in Urban Studies).
