You will soon receive your degree from Clark University.

Commencement 2018 will be held Sunday, May 20, on the Jefferson Academic Center Green.

Although most of your work is completed, there are a few significant details to which you need to attend before graduation in May. Please read carefully and note important dates, times, locations, procedures and attire requirements for Commencement 2018.

Students who have completed all work and whose grades (no incompletes) have been received at the Registrar’s Office are automatically included in the Commencement Program and invited to participate in the graduation ceremony.

Please review your student account prior to April 1 to see if you have any holds and/or a balance due. All holds and balances must be eliminated before you can be cleared for graduation. If you have any questions, please contact your student account counselor before April 1 at the phone number matching the first letter of your last name, below:

All students who received federal or Clark institutional loans to finance their education must complete an online exit interview. These are mandatory, and diplomas of any students who do not complete online exit interviews may be withheld. You will be notified in April about the exit interview process.
