Review FAQs

The Office of Financial Assistance is committed to assisting eligible graduate students meet their responsibilities to cover the cost of education.

Graduate students at Clark can apply for two categories of assistance: merit scholarships and student loans. Graduate students attending at least half-time can also enroll in the University’s payment plan.

Merit Scholarships

Merit scholarships are generally awarded at the time of admission to Clark by the academic department. Students generally receive notification when they receive their admission decision. Please contact the academic department for additional information.

Student Loans

Federal and private student loan programs are available to graduate students. Degree-seeking graduate students who are enrolled on at least a half-time basis and are U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens can apply. Loans must be repaid, usually after graduation, so students should not borrow more than they need or are able to repay.

Payment Plan

The best way to limit debt is to consider the Interest-Free Monthly Payment Option that is offered through Tuition Management Systems. Please call TMS at 1-888-216-4258 or view their website to obtain more information.
