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 you were dually enrolled for while in High School. This scholarship would be $1,500 per semester for the first year after graduation. Please review the following information to see how to qualify and maintain qualification for the following semester.

Benefits of completing an Associate's Degree at CSN
CSN has world-class professors who not only have graduate degrees, but most have “real world” experience in the field that they are teaching. Professors maintain several office hours each week to help support students reaching their success. Additionally, students will really get to know their professors and other students at CSN since class sizes are smaller than most four-year colleges/universities.
