Cleveland State Offers Extended Hours Leading Up To Fall Semester

Friday, August 10, 2018

In the spirit of “Community First,” Cleveland State is providing extended hours for student services in the upcoming weeks leading to the beginning of the fall semester.  

While campus offices are regularly open 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and the Advising Center is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays on the main campus, the campus will be extending the hours in order to serve all of the continuing and incoming students. Therefore, Admissions, Records, Financial Aid, the Bursar’s Office, Advising Center, Testing Center and the I.T. Help Desk will be open until 6 p.m. Monday – Thursday and 4:30 p.m. on Friday. The Advising Center will be open 10 a.m.–4 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday and Friday, with extended hours 9 a.m.–6 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday. New and returning students are invited to come during any of these times to make sure they are enrolled and ready to start classes on Monday, Aug. 27.

“We want to make it as convenient as we can for students to complete the enrollment process,” said Dr. Michael Stokes, vice president for Student Services. “As the start of the semester is approaching quickly, it's important that students who want to enroll this fall complete the advising and registration process as soon as possible to ensure their spot in fall classes.” 

Students are also invited to save some time and skip the line in the CSCC Bookstore by ordering books online at and select free in store pick up. Cleveland State will send an email when the order is ready to pick up. When students arrive at the bookstore they will not have to wait in the line for the register. They may inform a bookstore team member they ordered books online. Students need to have a photo ID at the time of pick up. Students may use financial aid to purchase books and supplies. Financial aid can be used on the website beginning on Monday and ending at 11:59 p.m. on Aug. 28.

Neither Honduras or our subjective media in America have been honest with us in the past. So, how do we know why that many people are marching across Central America?   ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Who Do You Trust?

About this time last month a 25-year-old kid with a fresh degree in “public policy” left me a phone call hoping to get my views.
