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.
Financial aid award notifications are sent to CSN students who have a completed financial aid file, are enrolled and have maintained satisfactory academic progress. Financial aid awards are made on a first-come, first-served basis.

Federal, state and institutional financial aid is calculated based on courses that meet your declared program and does not cover courses outside your degree requirements. Please visit our website and click on “Important FA Dates” for the year you are attending to see each semester/term dates for disbursement as well as other important dates that affect your academic career.
Communication Center for Notifications and Announcements
The Financial Aid Office’s primary method of communication is through the MyCSN Communication Center portal and email. The award letter can be viewed by logging into your MyCSN Student Center Portal at https://www.csn.edu/dashboard.
After logging into MyCSN, please review the Finances and click on View Financial Aid. Click on the column “Aid Year Description” to find your awards and scheduled disbursement dates for the semester/year. Students can also view their course eligibility and Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) status.
The first disbursement will pay approximately 7 days prior to the start of each semester. The Financial Aid Department will apply financial aid payments to the student accounts of eligible students. Any remaining balance is your responsibility to pay before the first day of the semester or your payment due date. Excess financial aid will be refunded to you within 14 days of the payment date unless you sign up for Direct Deposit on MyCSN. Paper check refunds are mailed to the permanent address you have on file with the Registrar's Office. Please remember to keep your mailing address current with the Registrar's Office.
