Progress Reports and Tutoring

Through Start@CU, three Progress Reports are sent out each semester to professors to provide feedback on your class performance, and follow-up meetings are scheduled when necessary.  Tutoring is provided by The Clarkson School to assist students primarily in math and science courses while Clarkson University Student Success Diversity & Inclusion Office provides a number of support services including tutoring.  These services are to ensure a smooth transition from high school to college.

The College Application Process

Many students choose to stay at Clarkson as sophomores but you don’t have to. Clarkson School students also migrate to some of the best colleges and universities in the country, including Ivy League schools, major research universities, and other highly selective liberal arts schools. In almost every case, they enter with advanced standing. Wherever you go, you will typically take sophomore-level courses the next year. While more than half of Clarkson School alumni stay at Clarkson, many go on to complete their education at other colleges and universities, including:  Boston College, Boston University, Brown University, Carnegie Mellon University, Colgate University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Georgetown University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Michigan State University, United States Military Academy at West Point, University of California at Berkeley, University of Chicago, University of Michigan and others.

The Associate Head of School holds college workshops at the beginning of the semester to assist you in applying to other colleges/universities. In addition, she requires each student to submit applications and essays for her to review before sending to admission offices.  She wants to make sure you put your “best foot forward”!
