  • Advanced transfer planning available. We will work with you semesters ahead of transferring to aid in selecting transferrable courses.
  • We celebrate AA or AS degrees. We value the importance of you completing the AA or AS; this accomplishment prepares you for a smooth transition and future success. You come to to Clarke as a mature, confident, and responsible individual, having already been in the world of higher education.

Academics
As a transfer student, you come to Clarke with a lot of college experience under your belt. We have plans to help you transition smoothly into Clarke’s academic life. Advising begins before you arrive on campus. An admissions counselor will contact you to make your arrangements, help with class selection, and answer any questions you may have. Clarke is renowned for its close community and hands-on involvement in the life of students. Your advisors and professors will provide a framework of support to ensure you have every tool you will need to succeed.

Value
A bachelor’s degree from Clarke University signifies a level of commitment and work that is impressive to graduate schools and potential employers. When our graduates speak about the Clarke moments that helped shape them, there’s always a professor in the story. That’s because being a faculty member at Clarke University requires a deep passion for educating, encouraging, and empowering students. Here, your professors will know your name. They will push you to develop your full potential, and then they’ll ask for more. And, they’ll be right there to congratulate you when you exceed even your own expectations. Often, it’s a relationship that lasts a lifetime.

Campus Involvement
Take your involvement beyond the classroom. Clarke offers ways to get involved on campus and the community around you. Studies have proven that students who become involved in activities and organizations stay in school longer, have a higher graduation rate, enjoy a better relationship with faculty and staff, and report a higher level of satisfaction with their college experience. So, try some different things, meet unique people, and have some fun. With many student-run clubs and organizations and countless other activities, there are plenty of ways to get involved.
