Every applicant for admission to Clarke is considered on an individual basis. The college attempts to select for admission those students who appear to be able to benefit most from its educational programs.

Because past academic success is an indicator of future success, a student's high school record is of primary importance in the evaluation process. Particular attention is paid to cumulative high school rank in relation to the overall type of academic program pursued. Scores from the ACT or SAT I also are considered.
