Student loans

Federal and private student loan programs are available to graduate students. You may apply for loans if you are a degree-seeking graduate student enrolled at least half time and you are a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen. Loans must be repaid, usually after graduation, so you should not borrow more than you need or are able to repay.

Payment plan

The best way to limit debt is to consider the interest-free monthly payment option that is offered through Tuition Management Systems (TMS), with which Clark has an agreement. For more information, please call TMS at 888-216-4258 or visit their website at
