International Transfer: How to Apply
Each transfer candidate is individually reviewed with consideration given to both academic and personal potential. We consider the student's college record, academic references, personal statement, high school record, test scores and cocurricular activities. Emphasis is placed on the work done in college (as represented by grades and recommendations.) Typically, transfer students with a college grade point average of 3.0 or higher are successful at Clark.

If you attend or have attended a college or university outside of the United States, you are required to submit your academic records to a credit evaluation service to receive transfer credit and advanced standing from Clark.
International Transfers: Credit Evaluation Services
International students applying for transfer admission from colleges and universities outside the United States are required to submit their academic records to a credit evaluation service (see below) to receive transfer credit and advanced standing from Clark. All costs associated with these evaluations are the responsibility of the student.
Since overseas educational systems, requirements and credits differ from those in the United States, we ask you to contact these agencies in order to assist us in granting you appropriate transfer credit. Applicants who fail to submit their academic records to an evaluation service will be considered incomplete and will not be considered for admission to Clark. International students transferring from U.S. colleges and universities may submit their U.S. transcripts directly.
