LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - The College of Southern Nevada expects to graduate its largest class ever at its 46th annual commencement ceremony May 14 at the Thomas & Mack Center.

A record 3,597 students are eligible to receive 3,716 degrees and certificates, according to preliminary data. Official numbers for the spring 2018 semester will be available once final semester grades are available. In the last five years, more than 15,000 students have graduated from CSN.

"I could not be more proud of these students, and of our great faculty and staff who work so hard to change lives every day," said CSN Acting President Dr. Margo L. Martin. "Nevada needs more college graduates. I'm thrilled that so many students have been able to seize the opportunities that CSN offers them. I cannot wait to celebrate each and every one of them at our largest commencement ceremony ever," Dr. Martin added.

The college has continually graduated record class sizes for more than five years, which college officials attribute to a consistent focus on student success. Since 2012, the college has launched or expanded services such as free tutoring, opening math and writing resources centers on each campus, and dedicated counselors for degree-seeking students. In addition, new freshmen are required to attend orientation sessions, take placement testing and meet with advisor or counselors prior to enrolling at classes.

CSN's 46th Commencement Ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. Monday, May 14, at the Thomas & Mack Center on UNLV's campus. The ceremony will also be streamed live on the internet and available to the public at
