Information for All Senior Degree Candidates and Undergraduate Evening School Candidates


You will soon receive your degree from Clark University. Commencement 2017 will be held on
Sunday, May 21, on the Jefferson Academic Center Green.

Although most of your work is completed, there are a few significant details to which you must attend before graduation in May. Please read carefully and note important dates, times, locations, procedures and attire requirements for Commencement 2017.

Students who have completed all work and whose grades (no incompletes) have been received at the Registrar’s Office are automatically included in the Commencement program and invited to participate in the graduation ceremony.

Please review your student account prior to April 1 to see if you have any holds and/or a balance due. All holds and balances must be eliminated before you can be cleared for graduation. If you have any questions, please contact your student account counselor before April 1 at the phone number matching the first letter of your last name, below:

  • A-G  508-793-7721
  • H-O  508-793-7483
  • P-Z  508-793-7491

All students who received federally funded or Clark institutional loans to finance their education must complete an online exit interview. These are mandatory, and diplomas of students who do not complete online exit interviews may be withheld. You will be notified in March about the exit interview process.

Senior Surveys

Make your voice heard! Please remember to complete the Senior Survey and the First Destination Survey (you will complete this survey when you pick up your cap and gown). Each survey will take approximately 10 minutes. Your feedback is extremely important to the University and future Clarkies – your opinions matter!


If after reviewing the information on this page you have additional questions, please email the Dean of the College Office or call  508-793-7671.
