Financial Aid Online

The Financial Aid Office is currently working remotely, and our on-campus offices are closed. Students can meet with the Financial Aid Office representatives virtually. CSN's Financial Aid Office uses Microsoft Teams, a video conferencing tool. You can use Teams on your desktop computer, but if you are using a phone or tablet, you will need to download the Microsoft Teams app from the Apple App Store or Google Play. You can view this video if you need assistance accessing Microsoft Teams.

To protect student information, you must show a valid federal or state photo ID that we can view through your camera to discuss your financial aid file. We look forward to meeting you!


If you cannot meet virtually, you can contact the Financial Aid Office by email or call our Call Center at 702-651-4303 during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

CSN Mission Graduation Scholarship


Creating Opportunities and Enriching Lives


Scholarship Background:

The College of Southern Nevada has created the Mission Graduation Scholarship for students that are in their final semester to graduate. The Financial Aid Department would like to alleviate stress that may be felt as students try to achieve their educational goals.

We are looking for students that have completed their 2020-2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have attempted enough credits to achieve the degree they currently have declared with CSN.  We would like to encourage these students to meet with their counselor and determine if they are in their final semester for graduation.

Funding is limited and will be awarded on a first come/first serve basis. Applications should be submitted at the beginning of the graduating semester to allow time for processing.  Once funds are exhausted, no additional students can be considered. Due to limitation of funds, we are unable to award this program retroactively (previous semester or previous academic years).

Scholarship Amount:

Maximum award amount is $2,000 at full-time enrollment (12 credits or more).  Students needing less than fulltime to graduate will be considered for an amount prorated based on your enrollment level. (Offered during Fall & Spring semesters only.)

Funding is limited to only classes leading to the graduating degree(s) approved by the counselor.  Please note that students using a substitution waiver in the funded semester must have this noted on the Signed Degree Sheet for eligibility.

Students in their final semester for graduation may qualify for this scholarship if they meet the following criteria:

Qualifying Criteria:

  1. Must meet one of the following:
    • Cumulative 3.0 GPA or higher at CSN.
    • Have an Academic Satisfactory Progress pace of 80% or higher at CSN (You can find this information on your Satisfactory Progress Letter that the Financial Aid Department sends to students).
  2. Completed 2020-2021 FAFSA and turned in any documents listed on students “To Do” list.
  3. Registration must have a completed Application for Graduation on file.
  4. Met with an Academic Counselor/Advisor and provided a signed degree sheet confirming student will be eligible to graduate at the completion of the term.  Students may use a sub-waiver if the signed degree sheet is clearly indicated for the class/es being substituted for eligibility to graduate.

**Please note, this scholarship is for Fall and Spring semesters only**
