Transcripts from international programs that do not include the original language and its English translation will not be considered with your application. If you submit an official final transcript, please make sure to include confirmation of earned degree.

Financial Documents

Please do not send financial documents as part of your application for admission. Financial documents will be needed after you receive an offer of admission and choose to enroll at Clark University.

  • International Student Information Form (located in the application portal)

  • If the bank statement is not in your name, you must send a Signed Affidavit of Support form

Obtaining a Student Visa

After you upload the documents listed above, your information will be reviewed by Clark University's International Students and Scholars Office (ISSO). In most cases, the ISSO will issue an I-20 or DS-2019 form so you can apply for a student visa.
