International Student Services

Cleveland State University has created a global pathway program to make CSU undergraduate and graduate programs more available to international students. Students receive application assistance from enrollment advisors. These advisors are experts on schools’ application requirements, and on the ways that students can maximize the appeal of their applications. Advisors simplify and shorten the application process, and often manage to get the application fee waived. The advisors can provide assistance with English proficiency tests such as the IELTS and the TOEFL, help students match themselves with the most fitting majors and programs, and provide students with various kinds of assistance obtaining their student Visas, such as Visa interview preparation, help filling out forms, housing and dining choices, and more. The program also works with the City of Cleveland and a variety of local businesses, including hospitals, Fortune 500 companies, government researches, and cultural institutions to provide work experience and easy access to employment opportunities for international students.
