New CSN Program Gives Students Money to Enroll in More Classes

News logo

LAS VEGAS, Aug. 18, 2015 – The College of Southern Nevada is launching a new program today that will give students free money to spend at the bookstore if they take more classes this semester.

The CSN Future Grad program encourages students to take as close to a full load of credits as possible. Full-time students are more likely to graduate, and that’s what CSN wants its students to do.

Sponsored by Follett Higher Education Group, which operates CSN’s bookstores, the program is available to new students enrolling in their first three-credit classes or returning students adding additional three-credit classes between Tuesday, Aug. 18, and 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 23, which is the last day to register for 16-week courses for the fall semester.

After enrolling in a new three-credit course, students must email their names, student identification numbers and the names of the new courses in which they enrolled to futuregrad@csn.edu. Funds are limited to the first 1,000 students who email the college and meet the requirements. More details are available at www.csn.edu/futuregrad. Students who complete all the course work they began at the start of the semester will be eligible to receive another $100 CSN bookstore voucher for the spring semester.

“CSN has a variety of courses available now and we hope this program can compel potential students considering attending to make that final step and enroll, and returning students to take more credits toward graduation,” CSN President Michael D. Richards said. “We are grateful to Follett for generously providing the funds for this program.”

When: Now through 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 23, which is the last day to register for 16-week courses for the fall semester
