Clark Can't Wait to Meet You!

Posted by Kathryne Sonnett on Jul 31, 2019 2:21:13 PM

Sadly summer is winding down but Graduate Admissions is very excited that you are joining our global community of passionate scholars and leaders.  We are delighted to welcome you to campus!  In addition to getting to meet the faculty and administration for your department at Graduate Student Orientation, you will get to know your peers and the wonderful campus and area that we call home.

We've compiled some helpful tips to guide you through your first few days:

Getting Here

Transportation Service from Logan Airport

We are proud to offer free shuttle service from Logan Airport to Clark’s campus on Saturday, August 17; Sunday, August 18; and Monday, August 19. The shuttle will run three times per day. Pick up times will be determined based on demand. Please sign up to request the shuttle service before August 1, 2019. We will collect your travel plans now and will identify a shuttle time to pair you with later this summer. You will not be able to register for a precise time, but rather you will be scheduled on one of three shuttles closest in time to your arrival. Please note that due to space constraints, we are only able to offer this service to those students who are traveling alone. Additionally, this program limits you to two pieces of luggage or fewer. Sign up for the shuttle here.

Parking Permits

If you plan on bringing your vehicle to campus, there are a variety of options available to you as a new student of Clark. Please see our campus parking and permits page for more information about campus parking decals and regulations. Please note, the parking permit form for the upcoming academic year is available in mid-June.


New Student Orientation is more than a time to register for your classes; it’s your chance to explore campus, get to know your future classmates and faculty, and learn about student services. You will meet your adviser and prepare for the undertaking of your program’s curriculum. Please bring any missing transcripts and immunization forms with you to orientation in order to finalize your enrollment. International students should also bring their travel documents to the event.
