Innovation in Student Equity: Cleveland State’s Approach to Leveling the Playing Field
The cost of test prep and credentials can pose a significant barrier to those pursuing graduate degrees or professional certifications -- a barrier that especially impacts students from historically excluded groups. In the spring of 2022, Cleveland State University (CSU) became the first state school to provide all of its students access to free prep courses for graduate-level admissions exams, such as the GRE, GMAT, LSAT and MCAT, as well as licensure and credentialing programs.

Join CSU's Brittany Wampler and Kaplan’s Kim Canning on Thursday, February 2, at 2:00 P.M. ET for an in-depth look at how the school embraced this new model for enhancing student access, including a walk-through of the initiative’s inception, planning, implementation and student outcomes thus far.
