How to Register

  • Clark Students: Register via CUWeb as you would for the fall/spring semesters. You do not need a registration PIN. Consult with your academic adviser if you have questions about which course(s) to take and how they fit into your program requirements.
  • Visiting Students: Review application instructions and apply here.

All visiting students should submit their completed form at least one week before the course starts to allow enough time to activate their Clark student record to access the course and resources.

Technical Requirements

To be successful in an online course, you will access materials and submit assignments in Canvas regularly. Canvas is Clark’s Learning Management System (LMS). It is your responsibility to ensure that you can do so. At a minimum, you will need access to the Internet and a supported Web browser (Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari).

In general, you will be expected to submit assignments in MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or PDF format (Clark provides MS Office at no extra cost if you need it). Unless the assignment specifically requires an alternate format, please be sure to submit in one of the above formats or the instructor reserves the right not to grade the assignment. If students need assistance with converting or formatting documents, they should contact the ITS Help Desk.

If you need technical assistance with Canvas, using your Clark accounts, or with software used for completing course assignments, contact the ITS Help Desk: email them at or phone them at 508-793-7745.
