How to Apply

In this Section

Our admission process, like the Clarkson experience itself, is highly personalized. We’ll evaluate your application carefully to determine whether you and Clarkson are a good fit. We look for the best in you, and in return we expect you to demand the best from us.

In reviewing your application, we’ll consider your secondary school record, your ACT or SAT scores, your personal statement, extracurricular activities, individual honors and accomplishments, and recommendations from those who know you best. Shorthand, we take everything into account, not just the numbers.

We also strongly recommend that you come for a visit and an admission interview. Hands down, that’s the best way for us to get to know you and for you to know Clarkson. If you’re a high school senior, plan to stay overnight to get an even better sense of our community.
