Partnership Aims to Ease Transition from CSN to UNLV


The College of Southern Nevada and UNLV are formalizing a partnership to help students transition between the schools.

CSN President Michael Richards and UNLV President Neal Smatresk will unveil the UNLV/CSN Transfer Partnership on Tuesday at the CSN Charleston campus, 6375 W. Charleston Blvd.

School officials said the partnership, which includes housing two full-time UNLV transition advisors within CSN Transfer Centers, is designed to improve the transfer experience and provide CSN students with more support as they move from the two-year college to the four-year university.

“Navigating the transition from community college to university can be difficult, and the transfer office will provide significant assistance in for students planning that transition. We also hope it will inspire others whose goals did not include a four-year degree to think bigger,” said UNLV executive vice president and provost John White.

UNLV transition advisors will have offices at CSN Transfer Centers on the CSN Cheyenne and Charleston campuses. Both will rotate to the CSN Henderson campus.

The principal role of the UNLV advisors will be to work with CSN students to:

  • Complete transfer degrees
  • Work with CSN students for seamless transfer to UNLV
  • Arrange for tours and/or orientations for CSN students to UNLV campus
  • Participate in the CSN curriculum and general education advisory committee
