Apply for Admission

If you are at least 18 years of age, have graduated from high school, or hold a GED certificate, you are qualified to attend Clark College. Special consideration may be given to students who do not meet these requirements.

All new incoming students, as well as returning students who have not attended for six quarters or more, are required to submit an admissions application.  Please note a non-refundable, one-time application processing fee of $25 is required at the time of application for new students to Clark College.  You can apply for admission any time during the year. You are encouraged to apply early to meet Admissions Deadlines.
