Submit disability documentation to the Director of Student Accessibility Services, and self-identify, by June 18, 2021.
August 17–18, 2021
Early Orientation provides you with a solid overview of Clark’s accessibility services. You will:
- Meet and get to know your Orientation peer adviser
- Connect and form friendships with other students attending pre-orientation programs
- Have some additional time to transition and find your way around campus
Our Fall 2021 schedule is still coming together, but feel free to check out 2019’s in-person orientation schedule below!
To attend our Early Orientation, follow this timeline:
- From deposit to June 18 — Register with Student Accessibility Services
Enroll at Clark! Self-identify as a student with a disability (this usually happens when you say, “Hi, I am looking for accommodations.”) and submit appropriate documentation for review. Documentation guidelines can be found here.
Though accommodations are processed on a rolling basis, it is imperative that first-year students complete the process in a timely manner, as there are a large number of new students to be assisted. Any students who submit documentation after June 18 may miss early registration and may need to register during general course registration times.
- By June 18 — Schedule an Intake Meeting
Schedule and complete an intake meeting with SAS staff. This meeting can happen over the phone or via Zoom and should take no longer than 30 to 40 minutes. Zoom meetings are preferred during this time! The intake meeting should be completed by June 18 so you can take advantage of early registration as an incoming First-Year Student.
- June 18 through summer — Course Registration
First-Year students registered with SAS are able to participate in early registration for their first semester of courses. Please note that this is only done for the first fall semester unless otherwise accommodated. SAS staff and Summer Advisers can assist with course selection and planning.
- June 18 to July 23 — RSVP to Early Orientation
Let SAS staff know if you’re interested in participating in Early Orientation. Please RSVP by July 23 so that we can communicate the Early Orientation list to the Orientation Team.
- July 31 — Final Confirmations
All new student meetings to review documentation, accommodations, and course selection should be completed by this date to be processed in a timely manner for the fall semester.
