Remember Two Essentials: Your Clark Email and OneCard

Your Clark Email Account

All Graduate Orientation events are online, so it is important that you activate your email account and check it often. Your Clark email and calendar are used for official communications from the University, and will be critical tools for staying in touch with your instructors, your classmates, and the campus community. Access your Clark email online, or with the Outlook application for your mobile device (recommended).

Your Clark OneCard

Your OneCard is your official University identification card and is required for all students. It also gives you access to campus buildings, the library, printing services, dining, parking, and student discounts.

To receive your OneCard, you must first upload your Clark OneCard photo. OneCards will be distributed by your school or department when you arrive on campus.

Arrival on Campus

You will receive specific arrival information via an email sent to your Clark email account.
