CSN prides itself on our graduating High School class. The Financial Aid Department and Academic Affairs worked together to create a scholarship to assist our high school graduates to become CSN graduates. Through hard work and dedication, many students are very close to completing an Associate's degree with CSN after high school graduation.
To support your continued success, CSN is offering a one-time CSN President's Scholarship to complete your degree for up to $3,000 for fall and spring ($1,500 per semester) immediately after you graduate .

Benefits of completing an Associate's Degree at CSN:
- Most four year colleges and universities in and outside of Nevada are also more likely to accept all credits from your Associate’s degree rather than just transferring in some of the college credits that you earned while at CSN High School.
- CSN has world class professors who not only have graduate degrees, but most have “real world” experience in the field that they are teaching in. Your professors maintain several office hours each week to help support you in reaching your success. Additionally, you will really get to know your professors and other students at CSN since our class sizes are smaller than you will find at most four year colleges/universities.
- CSN prides itself on providing free and unlimited access to an array of academic success support services to help you succeed in your courses. Services like one-on-one tutoring in a variety of subjects, drop in tutorial support centers in writing, math, reading, communication, accounting, international languages and more as well access to online 24/7 tutoring are all at your disposal at CSN. We also provide world class library resources with dedicated instructional librarians who are standing by to assist you. All this, with free parking at all our campuses.
