CORE registration is when you officially become a Clarke Crusader. You will have the opportunity to pick your classes, meet with faculty, set up your Clarke email, check out the dorms, and much more!

Dates are available on a first come, first served basis. There are limited spaces for nursing and athletic training majors at each CORE Registration program. Students are required to be on campus for the entire day to complete all registration activities.You can view the
CORE Registration schedule now.

Parents, you are joining the Clarke family, too, which is why there are separate sessions for you during CORE Registration. You will earn about your student’s transition to college, financial aid information, the advising process and more. Plus you can help your student complete required paperwork. We hope you will attend with your student.
