“We stand ready to answer all your questions and to work with you to ensure a smooth transition to Clark. I wish you all the very best in your future and hope you will join us.”
A Unique Opportunity, A Natural Synergy
In establishing the Becker School of Design & Technology at Clark, we are keeping this important academic asset right here in Worcester. Under the leadership of Dean Alan Ritacco and your current Becker faculty, we will retain much of the school’s core programming. As a student, you will benefit from a consistency in your academic experience. You also will gain additional opportunities through the combination of the strengths of our two institutions: Becker’s highly respected, specialized fields of study and Clark’s robust interdisciplinary liberal arts curriculum and graduate programs.
Our Streamlined Transfer Application
We have created a streamlined application process for your transfer to Clark. Just fill out a single form, and we’ll take it from there.
Our goal is to make the transfer process as simple for you as possible. After receiving your application, our dedicated transfer advisers will meet with you to review your application, transfer of credit, course selection, and financial aid. We also will be offering several channels so you can learn more and get to know Clark University.
- Final Deadline: July 1
Cost and Affordability
Affordability is a high priority. When you transfer to Clark, your undergraduate tuition will remain the same for the 2021-22 academic year, with a $12,100 grant to close the gap between Clark’s and Becker’s published rates. Merit scholarships will be honored, and our financial assistance team stands ready to work with you to meet your needs. Room and board options and rates will vary based on your selections. Similar to what you have experienced at Becker, base tuition, room, and board rates at Clark are subject to annual Board-approved increases.
