Clark is home to an exceptionally diverse community of students. Our undergraduates hail from countries across the globe, but all have one thing in common: a desire to challenge convention and change our world.
We are a community of many voices and ideas, and we are global to the core, welcoming students, faculty, and scholars from more than 80 countries. We are proud of the contributions and accomplishments of our international students, and our common understanding is broadened by the array of perspectives they bring to our campus.
We invite you to explore our admissions requirements, academic offerings, and our beautiful home in the heart of New England.
If English is not your native language, then please read our English Language Proficiency requirements below.
If English is not your native language, you will need to submit an official TOEFL, Duolingo, or IELTS score report. We do not have minimum scores for any test. We will consider your English proficiency holistically, based on your scores, transcript, essay, and letters of recommendation.
We strongly encourage all applicants to sit for an interview. This is especially important for applicants who do not speak English as a native language. Test scores only tell us so much; we want to give you the opportunity to tell your own story. Your options for an interview are:
- Email your admissions counselor to request a Skype interview with a current Clark student.
- Schedule an interview as part of a campus visit.
- Send us an interview from Vericant or InitialView.
If we determine that you are academically qualified to attend Clark, but could use additional language support, we will refer you to our English for Academic Success Program or Undergraduate Pathway Programs. Depending on your level of English proficiency, you would spend between one and four semesters in this program before joining the undergraduate degree program. You would not need to take the TOEFL or IELTS again after finishing the program.
If you have any questions, email your admissions counselor.
