As part of an effort to help keep undergraduate students on track with their academic and career goals, Clarkson University is once again offering a special summer tuition price. Clarkson students and eligible undergraduate students from other higher education institutions are eligible for the special waiver. Options include both on-campus courses in Potsdam and more than 35 offered online.

This year, the special price is in honor of the year Clarkson was founded…1896! The special summer price ensures that each student pays no more than $1896 per three-credit course. Tuition is normally $5,796 for a three-credit course. This special tuition price is valid in summer 2023 only and thanks to the alumni's generous support.

Interested students, including non-Matriculated Students from other institutions, should contact Cathy Avadikian, Director of University Advising at, and fill out the non-degree student application.
