You are on your way to becoming an official Clarkie! Each Clarke applicant for admission is considered on an individual and personal basis.
- Admission preference will be given to those who have a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 (4.0 scale).
- Admissions preference will be given to those who have a 2.5 (4.0 scale) in core high school courses.
- Clarke is temporarily test-optional; we will provide admission decisions without a test score.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 academic years will follow the test-optional policy at Clarke University. This allows applicants the option to either submit or not submit their SAT or ACT scores for the admission process. We believe students should present the most comprehensive picture of their academic and intellectual accomplishments when applying for admission to Clarke. If a student believes his/her standardized test scores will be valuable supporting information during the review process, then the results may be submitted. Students who feel their high school records alone are a better indicator of their academic achievement and ability may choose to exclude their test scores from their application without penalty.
- Fill out the application.
- Request that your high school sends us your transcripts. Transcripts should include class rank (if available), cumulative grade point average, and senior subjects in progress. Clarke accepts unofficial transcripts for acceptance purposes but will require a final high school transcript upon graduation.
- Request that your ACT, SAT I, or TOEFL score report be sent from the testing agency. Clarke also accepts a copy of the student score report for the ACT or SAT; which is available for free online. Enter the Clarke Code:
- 1290 for ACT
- 6099 for SAT I
- 6099 for TOEFL
