Financial Aid Timeline of Important Dates

This fall, Clark College is upgrading the software that runs MyClark. This upgrade is necessary and will provide lots of great new features for students, but you need to prepare for it!

Because it will take time to convert to the new system, some important timelines may be shifted earlier than you might be used to. In the Office of Financial Aid, these are the important dates and deadlines you will need to keep in mind to make sure you receive your financial aid on time. Information received after these deadlines will be reviewed after the software upgrade.

All dates below refer to the 2019-2020 Academic Year.
