Get Connected


Parents of first-time college students want to make sure that they are doing everything they can to access funding for college, so we designed this Timeline and Top Five Checklist. If your financial circumstances change after you file the FAFSA,  please visit Special Circumstances.

Please be aware that we communicate primarily with students, usually through the MyClarion Portal/Web for Students, and by e-mail to their Clarion University student accounts. We may discuss your student's financial and academic information with you only if s/he authorized this by signing a Release of Information Form in the Office of the Registrar.

The Links section of the Prospective or Current Students Page will direct you to what we believe are the best sources of information on all aspects of financial aid. Parents are also interested in the "What you must know" sections of the Current and Prospective Student pages.
