Start Your Application
Applying to The Clarkson School is just like applying to college. In fact, if you’re accepted to The Clarkson School and attend, you’re automatically admitted to Clarkson University. Upon successful completion of The Clarkson School year, you may continue at Clarkson University as a sophomore. Or you can carry your credits to the college or university of your choice.
Among the factors we consider in your application are your secondary school record, scores on the SAT or ACT exam and scores on the SAT Subject Exams. Since numbers don't tell the whole story, we also consider personal recommendations, extracurricular activities, individual honors and accomplishments, special talents and your own personal statement. Please visit Steps to Apply to submit the online application and to learn more about the required materials to complete your application portfolio.
Exceptional effort deserves recognition: if your admission application shows promise, and you are accepted, you will automatically receive a financial aid package made up of awards totaling at least $30,000.
The first step is working with you to make your early college experience affordable through grants, scholarships, work study, loans and other sources of financial aid.
Applying for financial aid is easier than you might think. When you file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), we will check your eligibility for federal, state and institutional need-based programs as well as Clarkson School Grants. These awards are based on financial need and a strong potential for success. To be eligible for merit scholarships and grants, we ask that you submit the FAFSA.
