CSN High School is a dual credit program designed to provide a smooth transition from high school to college. CSN High School provides a combination of high school and college credits through an agreement between the Clark County School District (CCSD) and the College of Southern Nevada (CSN). There is a CSN High School location on all three CSN main campuses- Henderson (South), North Las Vegas (East), and Charleston (West).
The CTE College Credit Program awards free college credit for high school classes. Eligible high school classes are a part of a CTE high school program which is generally three years of high school classes (Level 1-3). There are over 45 CTE programs offered through Nevada, which have been approved for college credit at CSN. High school students can apply as early as their junior year if they are in the third-level course.
