What might you pay?
Clark’s Office of Financial Assistance will work closely with you and your family to explore a range of funding options.
This tool can help you anticipate your college costs and estimate your eligibility for need-based scholarships. An education at Clark University is more affordable than you think.
Net Price Calculator
Use the College Board’s Net Price Calculator to give you a rough estimate of your eligibility for need-based assistance. The calculator provides an estimate only, and you may be eligible for more or less assistance than the results suggest.
Your application to Clark automatically puts you in the running for our merit scholarships. Read more about our Presidential Scholarship (for first-year students only) and other merit scholarships for both first-year and transfer students.
Find out about the process of applying for aid. Learn more about need-based aid, including grants, loans and work-study opportunities.
Clark recognizes that your family may need to explore additional financing options. Many families use a combination of payment plans and loan options to help pay the education costs that financial aid doesn’t cover.
Each year, Clark University selects several states to receive our regional incentive grant, a $5,000 automatic grant for admitted first-year students who attend high school in geographic areas outside of New England. For Fall 2023, the regional incentive grant states are California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Oregon, Texas, and Washington.
