This has to be the worst college in Nevada. I have attended UNLV and CSN and both institutions are extremely better then NSC. The professors are rude and disengaged. Two weeks before the semester started they canceled the biology class i had registered for without notice and i was required to search for open class on my own. When i went seeking for answers to why i was dropped from the class because it just said TBA on my schedule and "dropped" not a single person from the advisors office could answer me. My history teacher requires unrealistic readings and spend majority of the class with group discussions while he's probably on FB....Please don't ever call the IT department @ 5 or anytime near that because the will only recommend you buy a new computer and not even attempt to help resolve any issues your having.... One other instructor states she will respond to any emails with in 48 hrs but she means 48 hrs from when she receives it because i've been waiting almost a week now for a response to resolve a quiz issue.....Not to mention many of the students are very young and immature...Students have been distractions in the class and not one instructor has addressed the issue instead they allow then to act like high school students and ruin the class completely. I am very disappointed with this school and have heard the same from many other students. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE....

I am not impressed. I started classes at Nevada State College two semesters ago. My first semester was great. The education teachers were great. I took some business classes this semester. It seems I am beginning to understand that this school operates on a shoestring budget. The professors may be very qualified but are disengaged. One of my professors actually works for State College, PA as well and resides there. The school is small. I am not surprised that some students are having problems getting a job after school. I have an Associates from CSN and I am planning on returning there to get another because my first degree in in general studies and really not doing much for me. Thinking about getting a second degree in paralegal studies or in accounting. Not sure but this has been a bad experience and I will not be returning next year.

I am in my senior year at NSC and let me tell you IT IS NOT WORTH THE CHEAPER CLASSES!!!!!!! The school is so disorganized and no one answers the phone. If by chance someone does answer they wont know the answer to your question and they will "transfer" you to someone else, who wont answer the phone. I have been mislead by couselors, I have been lied to by admissions, and I have been given the run around by financial aide. EVERY semester there is a major problem, that I, as the student have to solve with no help from the school. One semester my fin aide will go through without a problem, but the next I have to spend hours on the phone trying to get them to fix their error. I think the school should reevaluate their procedures and hire some people who ACTUALLY know whats going on. The one benefit, and I mean one, is the professors in the school of education are wonderful! They are accomidating and there for support. If only the rest of NSC would take a hint from them they would be a lot better for it!

I agree with Amy B. about N.S.C... The first semester I attended the school I did not receive my financial aid until a week after school started. I emailed my teacher to advise her I could not purchase my book until I received my funds. I was advised that I should be prepared for class even if I didn??t receive my aid. I'm in my third semester and N.S.C. and again school is starting and I have not received my financial aid. I applied when it first came available and now here school starts and no check. You can never get any straight answers from this school. The administration is horrible. I went to this school for the Biology classes but after my last teacher I may be transferring to another school.

I am on my second semester at NSC. When I first enrolled, the staff was very quick about processing my paperwork. My husband was so impressed, he decided to apply the week before classes started, and he too was able to get processed in time.

The only hiccup we encountered with the registrar's office was with transcripts. After paying the fee to have transcripts sent electronically from CSN to NSC, they somehow didn't get them. We had to pay again, and then eventually we just went directly to CSN to pick up a copy.

Fast forward to the second semester. Because of the State's major budget cuts, the financial aid office is left with just one employee to process all scholarships and grants.

What that means for us?
We are 2 weeks into Spring semester classes and still have not received our Pell grants. I had to drop a January minimester class that started earlier this month because I couldn't afford to pay out of pocket nearly $600 for just the class and the book. However, even though I dropped it 3 days into it, I was still required to pay for the entire class with no refund, That was taken out of my student loan when that was disbursed the day classes started. We had to pay for classes and books out of our already very tight budget, with the hope that our reimbursement will come soon.

When we went to the office to inquire about the situation, there were others in line who had been purged from their classes due to nonpayment because they didn't receive their aid either. We were told at that time by the Director of Financial Aid that it would be processed by the following day and that we would receive the grant money in the mail that week. That did not and still has not happened. Now, the Director refuses to return calls or e-mails. Guess he's on vacation maybe?

The class sizes are very decent, much better than UNLV or CSN. The teachers are just as good too. However, many of them are very rigid and unwilling to work with exceptions. Being employed full time and having a family, I chose this school because of its flexibility within the degree. Being able to do most of the classes online is a blessing. Although, some of the teachers who teach the online classes seem to have the belief that the only people who should be taking the class are those who have no other commitments outside of school.

I would still recommend this college. Just be prepared to make a full commitment, both timewise and financially.

Been going here for 3 1/2 years. I am going to graduate with a business administration degree. It is professional and the staff help you along the way. Professors are easy to talk with. The on-line classes are very good. The only reason I went to this school is that they have a very extensive lists of classes that are on-line. My adviser has been there when I needed to talk about the best way to graduate. I recommend this college to any one how is busy and want to graduate on their own time. I have two kids and am busy with life challenges, but with this school, I will graduate in 4 years!!! One more thing. You do have to take some classes on campus. Out of the roughly 35 classes I have taken, I have had to go to class for 4 of them.

I graduated from Nevada State so I know it's strengths and weaknesses.

Strengths: The classes were very small. The professors were very accessible. This place is cheap. If your thinking about attending U of Phoenix, DeVry, I.T.T. you will save a ton by going to NSC. It's only $97.50 per credit. UNLV is around $142.50. I had some excellent professors that went to Yale and UC Berkley. There was only one dud, Grace Thompson. She was terrible.

Weaknesses: If your looking for a traditional college experience (dorm life, greek life, sports) your not going to find it here (at least yet). They have a few clubs but not too many. So even though the college is small, you may feel disconnected from your classmates. Also, the Career Center is non-existent. This part was extremely frustrating to me. There was no on-campus interviews for internships etc like UNLV. NSC should have some connections with local businesses in Henderson. I had a hard time making connections with local businesses. This doesn't mean that you will be a janitor after you graduate. It does mean that you will have to work harder than a UNLV graduate to find work. I finally did get interviews for Wells Fargo (manager trainee) and Wynn (marketing) and a school. This took about a year though!

I've been in this college for just about three years now (since Fall of 2005) and I have watched the school change before my eyes. When I first started, there were not many professors, the bookstore was pathetic, and the school had no style. As time passed, the bookstore went through a major overhaul (it's great now), the number of full time faculty has increased, and the school has more style than it used to. To make matters even better, a brand new state of the art building will be opening in about three months just in time for the fall semester. Even though it has taken time, the school is expanding before my eyes. I have liked just about every professor I've ever had, and a good number of them genuinely care. Many of these professors are Doctors and they could easily go somewhere else, but they care care about the students and school so much that they would rather stay. Yes, it has taken time for the college to grow, but doesn't this case apply to everything in life?

This is really sad. I have friends who graduated from this school and can't get a job. Two are working as janitors in local casinos and one in Burger King.

If you want to work at Burger King you might as well go straight there, no need to waste time and money at a place like Nevada State College.

This place sucks... very disorganized and very bad teachers who are unprofessional. I had a teacher that barely spoke English and was teaching a very hard class. Organic Chem. The nursing program is toxic. Not one person is happy that is in current attendance , and the teachers change every semester. They also haze the students and treat them very poorly. If you decide to seek help from the dean , forget it. She doesn't care ... The teachers are aware of how much they can get away with, because the school can't find teachers.TERRIBLE

I've been going to Nevada State College for nearly three years now, and I think it's time I gave my two cents on the school.

THE GOOD:
Because it's a slightly more obscure school than CCSN or UNLV, you don't have to worry about overcrowded classes. The classes are small and instructors are always willing to answer any question you may have regarding the subject. And unlike UNLV, where every day is a struggle to find a parking place, this place has tons of parking. And even if the lot is full, you can easily park in the dirt lot across the street. The school has a number of majors available to pursue.

THE BAD:
This school's problem is that they're still getting off the ground. Despite several majors being offered, there are plenty of majors and classes that aren't yet available that you can take at other colleges. Likewise, due to the up-and-coming nature, NOT EVERY CLASS IS AVAILABLE EVERY SEMESTER. This, along with changing my major, means that it's gonna take over five years to get my four-year degree. The school itself isn't even consistent with graduation requirements; I've gotten countless different stories depending on who I talked to. This is totally unacceptable. And due to the small number of students, classes get cancelled often (I mean at a semester level, not individial sessions being cancelled.)

Take my advice and get your two-year degree at CCSN before you consider attending here, since they know what they're doing. Despite its larger class size and poor parking situation, I still have to recommend UNLV over this place.

THERE ARE TWO LOCATIONS FOR THE NEVADA STATE COLLEGE. ONE IS IN THE HEART OF LAS VEGAS AND THIS ONE IN HENDERSON. THEY ARE BOTH EXCELLANT IN PREPARING THE STUDENTS FOR THE JOBS THAT THEY ARE GETTING EDUCATED FOR. THESE COLLEGES USE PROFESSORS WHO ARE EXPERIENCED IN THE PERSPECTIVE FIELDS THAT THEY ARE TEACHING ABOUT.
THIS COLLEGE OFFERS COURSES IN COURT REPORTING,COMPUTOR SCIENCE,MEDICAL ASSISTENCE,DENTAL ASSISTENCE,ACCOUNTING,BANK TELLERS,ACCOUNTS PAYABLE, AND SO MANY MORE COURSES TO PREPARE YOU FOR A CAREER IN THE BUSINESS WORLD. THEY ALSO OFFER ON-LINE CLASSES. ONE GOOD THING ABOUT ATTENDING NEVADA COLLEGE IS THAT THEY OFFER FINANCIAL ASSISTENCE. THE HAVE A FINANCIAL COUNCIL OFFICE AT EACH CAMPUS. THEY ALSO OFFER NIGHT AND WEEK-END CLASSES. ONCE YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE REQUIRED HOURS TO GET YOUR DEGREE , THEY HAVE A WONDERFUL JOB PLACEMENT PROGRAM, AS THE NEVADA COLLEGE WORKS CLOSELY WITH MANY,MANY LOCAL BUSINESSES THAT CONTINUELY HIRE THE GRADUATES. THE FEE'S TO ATTEND VARY ACCORDING TO WHAT CLASSES THAT YOU ARE TAKING. THE CAMPUS IS NICE AND SPACIOUS AND THEY HAVE A NICE CAFETERIA. THIS IS A WONDERFUL TEACHING COLLEGE TO PREPARE IT'S STUDENTS FOR THE WORK WORLD THAT IS AHEAD OF THEM.

PROS: GOOD PROFESSORS, FINANCIAL ASSISTENCE
CONS: NONE
