HOW DO I APPLY FOR EARLY STUDIES?

1. All students taking early studies classes are required to complete the High School and Early College Programs Admissions Application. Click HERE to apply. Students will be admitted and will receive their CSN issued Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) student ID number in 3-5 days. 

2. Once a student has applied and received their NSHE student ID number they will need to validate their CSN student account. After a student has validated their CSN student account, they will be prompted to create a password. This will allow students to log in to GoCSN and access all of their CAN related apps in one place, including MyCSN, CANVAS, ALEKS, Tutoring, CSN Library, CSN Student email, and more.

HOW DO I GET TEXTBOOKS?

Textbooks are NOT OPTIONAL. They are necessary for you to do well in all college courses. Before the semester starts, find out if you will have to purchase your textbooks for your class or if textbooks will be provided to you. If you do need to purchase your books, take your printed class schedule to a CSN Bookstore. The bookstore staff will tell you which books you need to purchase and which books may be available for rent. You can also order your books online at Follett Live.
