So, what does it cost to go to Clark State?
Less than you might think. Our tuition is one of the lowest in Ohio. But even with our low tuition, why spend money when you don't have to? See if you qualify for financial aid assistance.
The State of Ohio provides 40 percent of the College's revenue through two state subsidies: the State Share of Instruction and Access Challenge. The rest of the College's revenue come primarily from tuition and fees.
If you are an Indiana resident taking classes at an Ohio college or university, the Indiana Ohio Reciprocity agreement may influence the cost of your tuition.
If you are classified as a nonresident and are being charged out-of-state tuition, refer to the Ohio Residency Application linked below for the guidelines, as defined by the Ohio Department of Higher Education, to determine if you qualify for in-state tuition. Students who are in the United States on a Visa may refer to the last page of the application to determine if your Visa type qualifies for in-state tuition.
