Serving you throughout your Clark journey

The Academic Advising Center offers general academic services to help you plan your academic program. Work with us to explore majors or design your own major, develop strategies to overcome academic difficulties, receive assistance around learning or special needs issues, evaluate transfer credits, and more.

In your first year at Clark, you will be assigned a faculty adviser to help you select your courses and programs. Once you declare your major, faculty within that academic department will coordinate your academic advising. However, you may continue to receive support from the Academic Advising Center. We are here for you.
