The Office of First Year Experience (FYE) & Student Success Initiatives welcomes you to the College of Southern Nevada.  Your next step to becoming a Coyote is to participate in orientation. Orientation is an important part of the new student First Steps requirements, and is MANDATORY for all incoming first time in college students.

As a result of completing orientation, our goals are for students to experience the following learning outcomes:
  • Develop a value for the importance of community within CSN
  • Enhance knowledge of career paths, degrees, and student success
  • Cultivate an awareness and exposure to CSN campus resources
  • Communicate students’ rights and responsibilities
  • Understand where to locate academic advising help
  • Enhance knowledge of student activities, student leadership and service-learning opportunities
  • Complete the first steps enrollment process

Orientation will help answer questions that are common to new students, introduce you to student resources and services, connect you with faculty and staff, and put you on the path to a successful transition to CSN and college life.  At CSN, students have the option to complete orientation in-person through one of our CORE sessions OR Online.  We highly encourage you to attend the in-person CORE orientation session for a more engaged experience, but you may complete the online orientation as alternative.

ANNOUNCEMENT:  Registration to attend CORE events in preparation for Spring 2020 semester has closed.  CORE events in preparation for Fall 2020 enrollment will become available for registration in mid-April, 2020.  You may still complete orientation using our online orientation option, currently located in your MyCSN account.
