Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many colleges have suspended or relaxed some admitted student requirements and extended decision and enrollment deposit deadlines. We recommend that you contact the colleges to which you have been accepted directly for the most updated and accurate information.

Clark University, founded in 1887, is a private, research-based, liberal arts university whose motto is "Challenge Convention and Change the World." Clark students are socially conscious and committed to making a difference. They benefit from small class sizes, easy access to professors, an intercultural community, and learning through inquiry. In addition to research and internship opportunities, Clark's Fifth-Year Free Program allows qualified students to study for five years at the price of four and receive both a bachelor's and a master's degree. Its 50-acre campus is located in Worcester, 40 miles west of Boston.
