Tuition and Fees

Cleveland State University tuition and fees are automatically calculated based on your enrollment status, residency and course selections. The number of credit hours as well as the specific courses completed at other institutions may influence the remaining number of coruses that a student has for their business program at CSU.  Visit the Office of Treasury Services website for information on the per-credit hour fees.

Current CSU tuition rate for in-state per credit fee: $401.50

CSU does have a tuition band in place for 12-18 credits.

Students in the Online BBA Degree Completion Program are charged the same CSU flat tuition rate with an additional web course fee of $25.00 per credit hour.

Additional fees include books and supplies.

Students in the Online BBA Degree Completion Program experience savings in the areas of housing, meal plans, transportation and parking. Additionally, students in this program are not charged the $25.00 UPass fee assessed per semester for downtown Main Campus students.

Financial Aid

Due to the part-time credit schedule of the Online BBA Degree Completion Program, students must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credit hours (part-time student status) and meet all other compliance requirements to qualify for Financial Aid.

In order to apply for financial aid, students must first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). By completing the FAFSA, you are applying for gift aid (scholarships and grants) and self-help programs (Federal Work Study and loans). Filing a FAFSA must be done every year in order to receive financial aid.

For additional information about financial aid, as well as a step-by-step guide to completing the FAFSA, visit CSU's financial aid website.


Continuing CSU students and new transfer students are eligible to apply for scholarships.

Students are also encouraged to apply for scholarships through external sources.
