Countdown to Clark

Starting your college career is an exciting time, and we’re excited to share it with you — but you’ve still got a few things to do before you arrive on campus.

The below list provides you with lots of information you need to be prepared to arrive to Clark – from necessary actions to get situated in Clark’s system, to important health documents, to all the ways you prepare for your first academic semester at Clark. Deadlines are listed below, but it is always great to get started early on completing some of these tasks that may take more time – like mailing your health forms or completing your Writing Placement exam!

New Clark accounts must be activated by you before they can be used for all network services. Activating your Clark account allows you access to your Clark email (where all official university communication goes), as well as your ClarkYOU account – where you can find information about classes, billing, and access to much of what Clark has to offer!

If you haven’t done this already, activate now. Click the button below to begin.
