Cleveland State University Appeals Process for Transfer Students

Cleveland State University observes all of the rules and procedures stipulated by the Ohio Articulation and Transfer Policy. In particular, we grant transfer credit for all college-level courses taken through institutions of higher education holding accreditation by a regional accrediting body accepted by Cleveland State University, in which a sufficient grade was achieved.

Cleveland State University offers the following appeal process that you may pursue if you are not satisfied with initial university decisions regarding applicability of your transfer credit:

  1. Contact the Office of the University Registrar to request a review of one or more courses on your Transfer Credit Evaluation (TCE). Requests may be submitted by email to tce@csuohio.edu or in writing, together with supporting material that you consider relevant.
  2. If you are not satisfied with the decision of the Office of the University Registrar, you may file an appeal with the Transfer Credit Evaluation Appeals Committee. Complete the Transfer Credit Evaluation Appeal form at www.csuohio.edu/enrollmentservices/registrar/forms/TCEAppeal.pdf in consultation with your academic advisor and submit it to your college advising office. The committee will respond to your appeal in writing within 30 days.
  3. If you are not satisfied with the decision of the Transfer Credit Evaluation Appeals Committee, meet with your academic advisor to discuss if an appeal to the University Petitions Committee is appropriate. The University Petitions Committee will usually only consider a TCE appeal if the student can provide new evidence supporting the appeal.
