We are still focusing on finalizing what the spring looks like, but will begin discussing the fall options very soon. We are hopeful that fall will be more normal in light of vaccinations, but as always, we need time to evaluate.

As we did last spring, the International Center and the Dean of Students office will work with international students who are not allowed to return to their home country.

The Clark Commitment and Student Conduct

Clark will follow up on any report submitted that indicates a member of the Clark community is not adhering to the Clark Commitment. Reports can be submitted here.

Students are highly encouraged to stay on campus and make the best decisions that not only protect themselves, but also fellow Clark community members. Specific student concerns or behaviors that are not in keeping with the Clark Commitment should be reported so follow-up conversations can take place to address concerns. Reports can be submitted here.

Commencement

We are planning for several options for Commencement, but the final decision will ultimately rely on what the state allows for gathering numbers. We hope to announce our plans soon so that families can plan accordingly.

Tuition and Financial Assistance

Clark is proud of our commitment to high quality instruction regardless of modality. Tuition will remain the same as the published rates for 2020–2021.

If your family’s circumstances have changed since filing your application for financial aid — including anything related to the COVID-19 pandemic — you may file an appeal with Clark University’s Office of Financial Assistance.

Our full-time tuition will continue to cover the range of 3-4.5 units for undergraduate students. We recommend your student work with Academic Advising to find the course load that works best for them.

Any student who decides to drop to part-time should contact Academic Advising to complete the necessary form. There is no penalty or demerit for dropping to part-time; however, it may impact financial aid. Please reach out to finaid@clarku.edu with any concerns.
