CSN Parents & Families

CSN Parent & Family Experience

Our goal at CSN is to partner with parents and families to support the overall success of all students! The CSN new student first year experience begins with the recruitment process and provides overall support & connections for your student through the first year. The focus for CSN is to provide families & students a network of information, support and resources to aid in the successful completion of the first year and toward graduation and prosperity!

The sections below provide an introduction to information important to know for your student's CSN experience and opportunities for parents & families to get connected and stay connected to the overall experience.

For any questions, please contact the First Year Experience (FYE) and Student Success Initiatives Office at 702-651-2727 or at Contact Us.
