Early Orientation provides you with a solid overview of Clark's accessibility services. Benefits include:

  • meeting and getting to know your Week One peer adviser;
  • meeting other students attending programs that begin early;
  • having some additional time to transition and find your way around campus; and
  • forming friendships with your peers as a result of attending a small pre-orientation program.

Important Dates

In order to attend our Early Orientation, you will need to:

  • submit disability documentation to the Director of Student Accessibility Services and self-identify to attend Early Orientation by June 2.
  • schedule a summer meeting or telephone conference between June 22 and July 10 to discuss your documentation, academic accommodations and course selection.
