Virtual CU Registration

Your first day as an official Clarkie.

We are so excited that you have decided to join us and we can’t wait to share a piece of our campus with you. This day is the official start of your Clarke experience, but there are still some things to do before classes begin in August.

What to Expect at CU Registration
Registration day activities will run for two hours, plus individual appointments in the afternoon. You’ll meet with faculty, current Clarke students, receive important information, see what your first year will look like, and register for classes where you become an official Clarkie.

After the virtual part of CU Registration, you can expect to receive emails with information regarding setting up your Clarke accounts, financial aid, and billing.
