Policies & Procedures

Welcome to the College of Southern Nevada Policies & Procedures Webpage

CSN Policies provide direction and guidance that, along with Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) policies, assist members of the CSN Community in the daily conduct of CSN business. Policies are approved by the President generally upon the recommendation of the Faculty Senate.

These policies and procedures do not constitute a contract or implied contract. The President is vested with the right to interpret, amend or withdraw these at his discretion.

There are 5 categories of Policies: General (GEN), Faculty (FAC), Student (STU), Finance & Facilities (FIN), and Human Resources (ADM), and the policies are listed alphabetically. Also, provided below are several informational items concerning topics that are frequently addressed.
