Step 1. Apply for Admission


Review CSN's Residency Information & Application process.

NOTE: To apply for in-state residency for the fall 2017 semester, students must submit their residency application with all supporting documentation no later than August 4, 2017.

Late applications submitted after the deadline will not be considered; the student will have to submit a new residency application the following semester.


Prospective students seeking a degree or certificate of achievement from CSN must have a high school diploma, its equivalent (GED), or be a qualified international student.

A student who does not meet these admission requirements may apply for admission to CSN under alternative criteria, but will not be eligible for financial aid. Students may be admitted under alternative criteria by satisfying one of the following requirements:

1. Placement testing scores sufficient for entry into ENG 100 and Math 095 or higher; or

2. Transfer credits equivalent to Nevada System of Higher Education's ENG 100 and Math 095 with grades of "C" or better from another accredited college or university; and standing at the previously attended institution, including but not limited to, records of disciplinary action.

CSN is an incredible choice for so many students from Nevada, 49 states and over 60 countries. There are numerous opportunities in high demand fields such as healthcare and information technology. Receive a personalized approach to your education and choose from over 150 degrees and certificates in 70 academic programs.
