New Student Advising

Congratulations on Starting Your CSN Journey!


CSN Academic Advising is looking forward to getting to know you and having the opportunity to work with you during your academic career.

After you are accepted to CSN and have completed your account validation, there are two steps you MUST COMPLETE BEFORE scheduling to meet with an academic advisor:

  1. Complete Orientation. To complete orientation, log into GoCSN and search for the "Online Orientation" tile. 
  2. Complete placement testing OR send your qualifying ACT or SAT scores to CSN. Qualifying scores must be less than two (2) years old and high enough to place you into classes. For more information about placement testing, including cutoff scores for qualifying ACT or SAT exams, visit the Placement Testing Webpage.  


Ready to Meet with an Academic Advisor?

After steps one and two are complete, you can schedule a time to meet with an academic advisor and other students in your area of study (all advising sessions will take place online in small groups). During the workshop, you will register for classes. These advising workshops are based on your area of study, so choose either your area of study or major below to see when workshops are available. Click on your preferred date and register for the session. After registering, you will be emailed confirmation of your chosen date and instructions on accessing the workshop.  

*Students in Health Sciences majors should visit the Getting Started Webpage to schedule a meeting with a health programs advisor. 

*If you have an IEP or 504 Plan and wish to meet individually with an academic advisor, please contact us by phone to schedule an online appointment: 702-651-3165. 

*If you have not completed the two steps above, your advising workshop registration will be canceled and you will have to reschedule for a later session. 

*Still have questions? Contact Us

*Coming Soon: if the available sessions don't fit your schedule, an on-your-time option will be available soon. Check back to this page for updates and instructions on how to complete advising when the time is best for you.
