You must submit official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions you have attended. An "official transcript" is sent directly from the institution to our office. If you attended Cleveland State University the Graduate Admissions staff will obtain that transcript. Graduate Admissions will accept hand-delivered transcripts if they are presented in the issuing institution's sealed envelope and bear the appropriate seals and signatures.
