Payment Information

All fees assessed by the college are subject to change as approved by the NSHE Board of Regents. Students may consult Class Registration through MyCSN or the Cashier’s Office web page at www.csn.edu/cashier for current fee information and payment deadlines.

 

Balance of Tuition and Fees: Currently enrolled students may receive an up-to-date account balance by logging into MyCSN. To avoid errors in billing and refunds, a student must use complete name, NSHE ID number or social security number, and local address on all transactions. Please print clearly and retain all receipts.

 

Methods of Payment

Online Payment: Students may pay for tuition and fees with a credit card through MyCSN. CSN accepts MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, and Diners Club credit cards. In the event that a credit card is declined online, classes will not show as paid, and all classes are subject to be dropped due to non-payment.

 

In-Person Payments: Students may pay for tuition and fees in person at the Cashier’s Office at any of the three main campuses during office hours if paying by cash, cashier check, money order, or personal check. Checks must be made payable to the NSHE Board of Regents. Be sure to write the student’s NSHE number on the check when paying in person.

 

Mail-In Payment: Students may mail in personal checks for payment. Be sure to write the student’s NSHE number on the check and allow sufficient time for mail delivery. The mailing address is:

College of Southern Nevada
ATTN Cashiers Office - NLVE124
3200 East Cheyenne Avenue
North Las Vegas, NV 89030

 

Returned Checks: Personal checks are accepted for payment of fees owed to the college, although no counter checks or checks altered in any way are accepted. A fee of $25.00 will be assessed for any check returned unpaid by the bank. The prevailing bank rate is assessed for any check returned unpaid by the bank. Any returned check must be made good within ten (10) days after being returned to the college. If the account remains delinquent, collection procedures will be instituted. Personal checks returned for any semester fees from the bank constitute a financial withdrawal. The college reserves the right to place the student on a cash basis only, and withdrawal procedures may be initiated at the option of the college. A stop payment placed on a check does not constitute an official withdrawal from courses. Official withdrawal must be made via MyCSN or in person through the Office of the Registrar. Stop-pay checks will be processed as returned checks and are subject to the same fee and collection procedure.

 

Payment Plan: A payment plan is available to students who register for six or more credits per semester for Fall and Spring semesters. A non-refundable fee of $10 will be charged upon enrollment of the payment plan. Directions for payment plan setup are outlined on the Cashier’s Office web page at www.csn.edu/cashier. It is the student’s responsibility to follow the payment plan schedule. A penalty fee of 10 percent (minimum of $10) will be charged per installment not paid by the due date. Any unpaid balance on a payment plan is treated as an official fee hold and is subject to collection procedures.
