We're glad you've chosen to apply to CSN.

Before you apply, we want to remind you that this non-degree-seeking status is designed for students who wish to take courses but do not plan to pursue a degree.

Please note that:

  • Non-degree-seeking students are not eligible to receive financial aid. To be considered for financial aid, you must complete the degree-seeking application.
  • Non-degree-seeking students may change their status to degree-seeking at any time after admission through their MyCSN student account.

Before you decide to continue as a non-degree seeking student, we encourage you to learn about our Areas of Study. Choosing an Area of Study can help ensure you are taking the classes that count toward a degree or certificate, should you choose to become degree-seeking. First, watch the video below.  Then look through the 11 Areas and see if there is one that matches up to your career interests. 


If you decide to declare an area of study and become degree-seeking, make sure to submit that application.

If you wish to continue as a non-degree-seeking student, view our important dates and deadlines page and look through the enrollment steps below.
