Freshmen CORE Registration

Thursday, August 20, 2015

CORE Registration is when you officially become a Clarke Crusader. You will have the opportunity to register for classes, meet with faculty, talk to financial aid staff, set up your Clarke email, check out the dorms, and much more!

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 learn 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. CORE Registration is designed for new crusaders and their parents. While siblings are welcome, specific programming for siblings is not provided so you are invited to bring books, computer/tablet, etc. for them.

Confirm your CORE Registration

Confirm your CORE Registration program today. You must pay your $200 enrollment deposit to attend CORE Registration. If needed, you can submit that deposit online

All new students must take an online writing assessment prior to CORE Registration. Depending on your score you may be required to enroll in a one-credit writing and skills lab, in addition to Cornerstone (first-year writing and speaking course). Your CORE Registration date will be confirmed after you complete the writing assessment.
