Active Minds/Project 60 Program


The Project 60 Program enables any Ohio resident, age 60 or older, to enroll in for-credit classes at Cleveland State University on a tuition-free, academic space-available basis. Students are responsible for purchasing their own textbooks, providing transportation, paying for parking, and any other special fees.


If interested students would like to join us for the upcoming semester, please mail or deliver an application form to: Project 60, Cleveland State University, 2121 Euclid Ave., EC 100, Cleveland, OH 44115-2214. The application form is a simple, one-page form. You can download the application form or you can call 216-687-9379 for assistance.

On the Thursday prior to the first day of the semester, students can register for their courses online through CampusNet.  Individual assistance to register for classes will be provided at the Project 60 In-Person Help Day (optional) at the main campus or West Center.  Please visit the Project 60 website for the upcoming enrollment dates.

Classes are taken on an audit basis only, so students are unable to earn a degree or credits toward a degree with the classes taken through the Project 60 Program.  Project 60 students may not enroll in both Project 60 classes and degree seeking classes during the same semester.   If students wish to earn a degree or credits toward a degree, please visit our Undergraduate Admissions Office website or call 216-687-5411.
