Clark State was recently approved to offer two bachelor’s degrees. A four-year degree in Web Design and Development is anticipated to be available to students beginning in 2020 pending final approval by the Higher Learning Commission; and a four-year degree in Manufacturing Technology Management will be available to students beginning in the fall semester of 2019.
Clark State offers one of the lowest tuition rates in the state of Ohio at just $155.33 per credit hour for in-state students. Additional discounts are available for active duty military and students who qualify for the Tuition Challenge program.
Clark State offers a reduced tuition rate to all active military personnel in the state of Ohio. Active duty personnel receive a 50 percent reduced tuition rate and their spouses receive a 25 percent reduced tuition rate.
