What to Expect

After check-in, anyone assisting students to move in must vacate campus. This step is unique and out of an abundance of caution during COVID-19.

Once students have received a negative test result, a small offering of masked and socially distanced events will be available.

Prior to arrival, virtual orientation will be filled with opportunities to discuss academic, personal, and social challenges that you will be navigating in your time at Clark. There will also be a few staff- and faculty-led programs designed to introduce you to life at Clark.

Every person you meet will give you a better idea of the richness and diversity of the Clark community. By participating fully you will discover the exciting options waiting for you at Clark.

Classes begin Monday, February 22, 2021.

Our spring 2021 schedules are not ready but for a preview of topics, review our schedules from last year!
