Financial Aid & Loan Information

Graduate students are eligible for an Unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan. Students who seek financial aid will need to file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The Clarke school code is 001852. In addition to the FAFSA, students must complete all admission requirements, including any required entrance exams, and be offered admission before a financial aid package is offered to the student.

How to Apply:

  1. Apply for admission to the university. Financial aid packages are prepared after the student has been accepted for admission to Clarke.
  2. Check the appropriate section of the admissions application indicating whether or not you plan to seek financial aid.
  3. File the FAFSA and indicate that Clarke is to receive a copy of the need analysis report. The Clarke school code is 001852. The priority deadline for financial aid is April 15.

When a student is accepted for admission and the need analysis report has been received from the processing center, the Financial Aid Office will prepare an individualized financial aid package. To avoid a delay in receiving an aid package, tests and other admission requirements must be satisfied prior to the anticipated start date.

Financial aid awards are determined annually after a current FAFSA is filed. Students receiving financial aid must maintain satisfactory academic progress as determined by the Vice President for Academic Affairs and the Director of Financial Aid.
