Fall 2012 Registration Changes
Fall registration is open for all students. Payment is now due by 11:59pm on the day of registration unless a payment plan is set up.
Students can sign up for a payment plan online via MyCSN or can do so in person at a campus cashier’s office during regular business hours.
Changes affecting students who do not have a high school diploma or its equivalent:
Incoming students seeking a degree or certificate of achievement from CSN must have a high school diploma or its equivalent, to be admitted to an academic program at CSN. An incoming student without a high school diploma or its equivalent may apply for admission to CSN as a degree-seeking student under alternative criteria. Incoming students may be admitted under alternative criteria by satisfying one of the following requirements:
- Placement testing scores sufficient for entry into ENG 100 and Math 095 or higher; or
- Transfer credits equivalent to NSHE’s ENG 100 and Math 095 with grades of “C” or better from another accredited college or university; and have good standing at any previously attended institutions, including but not limited to, records of disciplinary action.
Subject to the approval of appropriate high school and college officials, junior and senior high school students who are at least 16 years old may be admitted and enrolled at CSN.
Due to changes in federal regulations, students must have a high school diploma or its equivalent to be considered for financial aid.
Current degree-seeking CSN students without a high school diploma or its equivalent receiving financial aid (including students satisfying the Ability-to-Benefit requirement) will be allowed to complete that program with financial aid assistance but will not be able to change their declared majors after June 30, 2012 without first earning their high school diplomas or its equivalent.
Therefore, please verify that your declared major/degree program in your MyCSN Student Center is accurate.
If you have not graduated from high school and would like to take the GED (offered in English or Spanish), you may prepare for and take the GED exam at CSN. You must pre-register in person with a proper government-issued picture ID at CSN’s Testing Center, located at each campus. CSN also provides GED preparation classes. For a paid class ($135), contact 702-651-4747. For a free course at CSN’s Sahara West Center, please call 702-651-4487.
