Because... You can start over

"Crime, addiction, having my kids taken by the state, and no one would hire me. That was me in 2003. Caring instructors and others at CSI believed in me, encouraged me, and showed me I could change my life. I counsel many of my clients to make CSI part of their own lives.

My success began at CSI."

Do any of these apply to you?

  • I wasn't exactly the best student in high school. After graduation, I just went to work instead of to college.
  • I didn't actually finish high school. See, my boyfriend and I decided...
  • I enjoyed high school and looked forward to going to college, but things didn't work out. I have a job that's OK, but I've always wished I could...
  • Where did the time go? I want more for myself and my family, but how can I possibly change directions in my life now that I have kids?

Many students at CSI can say yes to one or more on this list, but they're here and they're finally accomplishing what they've been putting off. That's one of the great things about CSI; we can help you pick up right now from wherever you left off. Still need a high school diploma? We can help. Need help getting ready for college classes? We can help. Would you like to figure out what you're really good at so you can enjoy a better career? Yep, we can do that, too.

Life, they say, is what happens to you while you're making other plans. Let us help you make a plan for a better life.

affordability is just one of many ways CSI is so attractive. I’m a sophomore honors student. I walk around campus and I know people everywhere I go. The professors are friendly and welcoming and there are events every week to attend. What’s more, I happen to be only 30-45 minutes from some of the best fishing in my life on weekends! Class sizes are reasonable, too. I wouldn’t have gone anywhere else for my first two years of college!
