School District Program for Non-Degree Seeking Students
Please note that participation in the School District Partnership Program requires a signed School District partnership agreement with Clarke University.
Note: Please complete this application form if you are a new non-degree-seeking student OR if you have not enrolled at Clarke in the past year. Since this is not a degree-seeking pathway, students will not qualify for financial aid.
Current non-degree School District Partnership Program students who have been enrolled at Clarke within the past year may register for courses through the Graduate Education Course Registration form.
New non-degree School District Partnership Program students (or students who have not enrolled at Clarke for over a year) will register on the Non-Degree Application Form.
Returning After Absence
Students who have previously taken courses through Clarke University as a School District Partnership Program non-degree student but who have not enrolled at Clarke in the past year must re-submit the Non-Degree Application. Returning non-degree School District Partnership Program students who have been enrolled at Clarke within the past year may register for courses through the Graduate Education Course Registration form. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the non-degree-seeking application or registration process.
Add/Drop/Withdrawal deadlines are located on the Academic Calendar for fall/spring semesters. Summer add/drop/withdrawal deadlines are listed here. If you need to add or drop courses before the add deadline, please email email@example.com to request the add/drop. After the add deadline, please submit an Add/Drop Form or a Withdrawal from Course Form on the Registrar’s Forms Page.
Your bill will be sent to your home address around the time that your course(s) starts. Upon receiving your bill, you may mail a check to Clarke University Student Accounts (1550 Clarke Drive, Dubuque, Iowa 52001), or you may call Student Accounts at 563-588-6699 to pay over the phone. As a non-degree-seeking student, you will not be able to pay your bill through MyInfo. If you have any questions about billing, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
