How to apply
Students accepted to The Clarkson School are considered for federal,
state and University funds. Clarkson offers families an array of financial
aid options and tools to ease the financial commitment associated with
a college education. Federal financial aid in the form of grants and loans
is determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
for United States citizens and permanent residents. To be considered
for financial assistance, you much first file the FAFSA, and designate
Clarkson as a recipient (Title IV Code: 002699). Students can apply
It is important to note if they choose to
remain enrolled in a high school while they are enrolled in The Clarkson
School, they will only be eligible for Clarkson Financial Aid. All students
are automatically considered for all scholarships and grants available at
Clarkson University upon acceptance.
Clarkson School students are college students; we do not grant high school
diplomas. However; students who wish to earn a high school diploma, or its
equivalency, have three options:
Receive the high school diploma while enrolled at TCS. This requires
working out a plan with the high school ahead of time. TCS personnel can
assist the student and their high school with this process. In some cases
students are able to schedule their high school required classes in the first
semester allowing them to graduate in the January time frame.
