Admissions & Financial Aid

Take a look at us, see for yourself.

Full-time and part-time. Young and, well, less young. No matter who you are, you are a part of us.

Going to college is a big step and can be a little scary at any age. Clark State staff and faculty know this and are always here to help…whether you are just starting college, coming back to school after working and/or raising a family or still in high school.

Students of all ages, backgrounds and academic abilities are welcomed at Clark State. Even if you weren't a straight A student in high school, the caring environment and small class sizes at Clark State will help you achieve your life and career goals. The diversity of our students will enrich your classroom experiences and often makes for lively debates and interesting conversations. Take some time to check out this website and learn more about Clark State or visit one of our campuses in Springfield, Beavercreek, Bellefontaine or Xenia and then apply – you'll be glad you did.

You will be accepted into the College after your completed application has been received by the Admissions Office. If you are applying to a health or court reporting program, contact the Admissions Office for additional application requirements.

Acceptance letters are mailed throughout the year. If you are applying for the next academic semester, you will receive an e-mail acceptance within three business days and a hard copy will be mailed to you.
