The start of college is a very exciting time in your life, and we at Clark are pleased to be a part of your personal journey. While you are enjoying your final high school activities, you may be anxious about all the steps you need to take before the most important one: stepping onto campus on Move-in Day.

Below, you’ll find a to-do list that will help keep you organized, answer your questions, fuel your excitement, and ease the transition.

Log in frequently to CUWeb/ClarkYOU to keep track of your progress.

To-Do List

Activate your new Clark account to begin using the University’s network services and completing the tasks required of new students. If you haven’t done this already, you should activate now by clicking on the button below.

ACTIVATE YOUR ACCOUNT

All students will have access to view semester invoices and monthly billing statements online by logging into CUWeb (ClarkYOU).

However, if you want your parent or someone else to receive e-bill notifications and view your e-bill, you must grant this authorization by following the steps below. Once you do, they will receive an email message whenever your e-bill is available; you also will receive that email message via your Clark email. Note: You must log in to CUWeb (ClarkYOU) to accomplish this task.

LOG INTO CUWeb

  • Once you you are logged into CUWeb (ClarkYOU), click on Registration under CU Web (Welcome tab).
  • On Registration page, click on red bar that says Student Services & Financial Aid.
  • On Student Services and Financial page, click on Student Account Information.
  • On Student Account page, click on View and Pay Student Account to go to the cashnet.com site.

  • On the Parent or Third Party PIN Information page, you may enter information about your parent or third party. Note: In the first box, Parent or Third Party Authorization, enter a unique identifier such as the parent or third party’s name; this creates a user name.

Clark has special T-shirts to celebrate our first-year class. We need you to vote on a T-shirt style, and select your size, so we can order you a T-shirt.

Check back here for details (coming soon).

To ensure you register for the writing class that will best prepare you for writing assignments throughout your four years at Clark, you must complete the writing placement process, which involves submission of a questionnaire and a placement essay. All incoming first-year students are required to do so. Note: You must log in.

START NOW

Housing:  Living in one of our residence halls as a first-year student is a key part of your Clark experience. But there’s a lot to know — like how to apply for housing and plan for your arrival in August.

Meal Plan: Students living in Traditional Lifestyle or Suite Lifestyle Housing are required to have a full meal plan and will be assigned the All Access Plan if no selection is made.  Note: You must log in.

HOUSING AND MEAL PLAN SIGN-UP

With a couple of exceptions, the professor who teaches your First-Year Intensive (FYI) seminar will become your pre-major adviser. All faculty are prepared to advise first-year students, regardless of the area of interest. In preparation for your summer advising appointment, it’s important that you fill out this form so your adviser can best guide you in choosing your first-semester courses and academic program.

FACULTY ADVISER INFORMATION FORM

Log into MOODLE, Clark’s course management system, to complete the online Summer Advising and Registration Tutorial between June 10 and July 8. You must complete the tutorial before you can schedule an appointment with your summer adviser.  Note: You must log in.

TAKE THE TUTORIAL

The Mathematics Placement Test is an independent assessment of a student’s quantitative ability. Analytical, computational, and technological skills have become increasingly important in many disciplines and professional careers. We therefore encourage students to improve and further develop those skills, independent of their intended majors, by taking courses in mathematics and computer science starting in their first year.

TAKE THE TEST

You know you’re an official Clarkie when you get your Clark OneCard! It’s more than your campus ID; it serves as a key to a number of campus services (including access to your residence hall). Find out more about the OneCard.

All students must have a photo ID. Submit a digital photo online, and your OneCard will be printed and ready for you when you arrive for Orientation. Photo requirements are similar to those for a driver’s license or passport. Note: You must log in.

SUBMIT YOUR PHOTO

Please use a JPG/JPEG file. Your photo should be no larger than 480 x 640 pixels and less than 200KB in file size.

All students will have access to view semester invoices and monthly billing statements online through CUWeb (ClarkYOU).

Note: You must log in to CUWeb (ClarkYOU) to accomplish this task.

To complete wellness training, you will need internet access and speaker/headphones to play the audio in the courses.  Your progress is saved automatically, so you may complete each course in multiple sittings.  Please know that all of your responses are confidential.

A link with instructions is coming soon.

Complete the health insurance waiver form if you have other comparable health insurance coverage and want to remove the health insurance charge from your student bill.

Incoming students who do not complete a health insurance waiver/enrollment form by the July 19 deadline will be automatically enrolled in, and charged for, the Clark University Student Health Insurance Plan so the University may comply with Massachusetts law.

To avoid registration holds and loss of class time, all balances must be paid by the due date.

To complete your enrollment, Admissions needs your final transcript from your high school. Contact the Admissions Office if you have specific questions about what is required.

UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSIONS

The Office of Financial Assistance wants to wrap up all of your awards before you come to campus; this requires you to finish a bit of paperwork. Make sure to contact the Office of Financial Assistance to see if anything is still outstanding.
