Procedures for International
International students should follow the same application
procedures described for local students. The Test of English as
a Foreign Language (T.O.E.F.L.) is not necessary when an
international student studies with Cleveland University. As an
internationally accredited university, all degree programs can be
completed in the student's native language. Presently, the
Cleveland Programs can be completed in: English, Spanish, Korean,
Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese and Arabic.
Combine Degree Program:
A well-qualified student may be permitted to sub-matriculate,
that is, to begin work on a higher degree program before
completing all the requirements for graduation at a lower degree
level. While there is considerable tuition savings when a student
is permitted to sub-matriculate, the Admissions Committee is the
only authority that can grant approval for a student candidate to
enter a Combination Degree Program.
Educational Expenses As A Tax
Educational expenses may be deductible when the expenses are
incurred as a part of an effort to maintain or improve skills
required as a condition of your employment, job status or
compensation. Consult your tax advisor to determine if your
educational expenses can be used to your tax advantage.
Advanced Payment Discounts:
Discounts are available for students who pay the total cost
upon registration. Please consult with your Recruitment Advisor
