Before You Arrive
With your Clark Account you will be able to access critical services including email, ClarkYou, network file storage, Moodle courses, use of lab computers and printing, etc. You will have received login information in emails earlier this summer.
Your Clark email address is where you will receive important updates and orientation calendar invitations from Clark, your professors, and fellow students — so it’s critical that you check your email often. We recommend you install the Outlook application for your mobile device. You can also check your email and calendar online.

It also gives you access to campus buildings, the library, printing services, dining, parking, and student discounts. OneCards will be distributed by your school or department upon your arrival on campus.
