Additional Information for Graduate Students

  • It is important for a student who plans to finish their degree at the end of any given semester to complete the Application for Degree in CUWeb by a pre-determined date established by the Registrar’s office.  The Registrar’s Office will email students the application and instructions to their Clark email.
  • Students who do not pay their accounts by the pre-determined due date each semester will receive an email notifying them a hold will be placed on their record.  This hold will prevent students from making adjustments (e.g., adding, dropping) to their registration; viewing their online transcript; and requesting an official transcript.  Students will also be at risk of financial withdrawal and/or having their registration cancelled.
  • Students will be assessed a late payment fee  of $200 if they have not paid their account balance by the due date.
  • During add/drop, students will be able to make changes to their registration without financial penalty, as long as their account has been paid and there are no current holds on their records.
  • Any course withdrawals made after the end of the add/drop period will be subject to the Graduate refund policy.  Other changes made to the student’s schedule (e.g., late adds, changing unit value) after the add/drop period may result in additional charges and a late registration fee of $100.
  • The University offers graduate students the option of paying their financial obligations using a payment plan administered by Nelnet Payment Plan.
  • Students planning to use financial aid to pay their financial obligation should submit necessary paperwork to the Financial Aid Office by the pre-determined date established by Financial Aid Office each semester.
  • Any graduate student (full-time or part-time) registering for a summer semester or term will receive an email with instructions to view charges in Cashnet and pay their account by a specified due date.

Students in full-time graduate programs will receive electronic semester invoices every fall and spring semester. Students will be billed based upon course units.

The semester invoice will include fees, tuition remission and other fellowship awards for students in full-time programs.

Part-time students receive an email to their Clark email account with instructions to view their student account and pay their account by a due date specified in the email.  Charges for Spring 2020 will be assessed on November 18, 2019 if registered for classes and thereafter upon registration.  The Part-time student billing due date for Spring 2020 will be January 3, 2020.  Part-time students who register after January 3, 2020, will be expected to pay their account balance 48 hours after registering.

CUWEB or Cashnet will reflect tuition charges for current registered course units, fees, tuition remission and other fellowship awards.  If a student later adds additional course unit(s) additional charges will be assessed.  The student is responsible for viewing their account in CU Web – or Cashnet and paying any account balance.

Payment Plans

We understand that it is not always possible or preferred to pay your entire balance by the semester due date.  One of the options that Clark offers in cooperation with Nelnet Campus Commerce (formerly Tuition Management Systems), is a monthly payment plan that provides a flexible, interest-free alternative.  To meet the frequent requests of our current payment plan users, Clark is now offering to both undergraduate and graduate students a five-month and four-month payment plan, with installments due on the 10th of the month. The $40 enrollment fee is the only associated charge with this plan.

Plan 5 Month 4 Month
First Payment Due Date November 10 December 10
Last Payment Due Date March 10 March 10
Online Enrollment Closes January 12 January 12
Student Population Undergraduates/Graduates Undergraduates/Graduates
Enrollment Fee per semester $40 $40

NOTE: The plan may begin before the semester statements are published, however students are encouraged to use the estimator tools available on the Clark website as well as their Student Accounts Counselors for help estimating a more precise balance due and the down payment. Once the statements have been published, the payment plan can be adjusted to meet the exact balance due at no extra cost.

The Student Accounts Office and the Nelnet Campus Commerce staff are always ready to help with any questions. To speak with a representative from Student Accounts call 1-508-421-3801, or call your student accounts counselor directly.

For Your Reference

For your reference, below is the Statement of Financial Responsibility, spelling out students’ responsibility for paying tuition, fees, and other associated costs at Clark University.

Statement of Financial Responsibility

I understand that when I register for any class at Clark University or receive any service from Clark University I accept full responsibility to pay all tuition, fees and other associated costs assessed as a result of my registration and/or receipt of services. I further understand and agree that my registration and acceptance of these terms constitutes a promissory note agreement (i.e., a financial obligation in the form of an educational loan as defined by the U.S. Bankruptcy Code at 11 U.S.C. §523(a)(8)) in which Clark University is providing me educational services, deferring some or all of my payment obligation for those services, and I promise to pay for all assessed tuition, fees and other associated costs by the published or assigned due date.)

I understand and agree that if I drop or withdraw from some or all of the classes for which I register, I will be responsible for paying all or a portion of tuition and fees in accordance with the published tuition refund schedule. I have read the terms and conditions of the published tuition refund schedule and understand those terms are incorporated herein by reference. I further understand that my failure to attend class or receive a bill does not absolve me of my financial responsibility as described above.

Financial Hold: I understand and agree that if I fail to pay my student account bill or any monies due and owing Clark University by the scheduled due date, Clark University will place a financial hold on my student account, preventing me from registering for future classes, requesting transcripts, or receiving my diploma.

Late Payment Charge: I understand and agree that if I fail to pay my student account bill or any monies due and owing Clark University by the scheduled due date, Clark University will assess late payment fee of $200 and finance charges at the rate of 1% per month on the past due portion of my student account until my past due account is paid in full.

Collection Agency Fees:  I understand and accept that if I fail to pay my student account bill or any monies due and owing Clark University by the scheduled due date, and fail to make acceptable payment arrangements to bring my account current, Clark University may refer my delinquent account to a collection agency. I further understand that I am responsible for paying the collection agency fee which may be based on a percentage at a maximum of 33 percent of my delinquent account, together with all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, necessary for the collection of my delinquent account. Finally, I understand that my delinquent account may be reported to one or more of the national credit bureaus.

Method of Communication:  I understand and agree that Clark University uses e-mail as an official method of communication with me, and that therefore I am responsible for reading the e-mails I receive from Clark University on a timely basis.

Contact:  I authorize Clark University and its agents and contractors to contact me at my current and any future cellular phone number(s), email address(es) or wireless device(s) regarding my delinquent student account(s)/loan(s), any other debt I owe to Clark University, or to receive general information from Clark University. I authorize Clark University and its agents and contractors to use automated telephone dialing equipment, artificial or pre-recorded voice or text messages, and personal calls and emails, in their efforts to contact me. Furthermore, I understand that I may withdraw my consent to call my cellular phone by submitting my request in writing to Clark University Student Accounts or in writing to the applicable contractor or agent contacting me on behalf of Clark University.

Updating Contact Information:  I understand and agree that I am responsible for keeping Clark University records up to date with my current physical addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers by following the procedure at  The linked procedure is incorporated herein by reference.  Upon leaving Clark University for any reason, it is my responsibility to provide Clark University with updated contact information for purposes of continued communication regarding any amounts that remain due and owing to Clark University.

I understand and agree that if I am younger than the applicable age of majority when I execute this agreement that the educational services provided by Clark University are a necessity, and I am contractually obligated pursuant to the “doctrine of necessaries.”

This agreement supersedes all prior understandings, representations, negotiations and correspondence between the student and Clark University, constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the matters described, and shall not be modified or affected by any course of dealing or course of performance.  This agreement may be modified by Clark University if the modification is signed by me.  Any modification is specifically limited to those policies and/or terms addressed in the modification.
