No matter where your degree is found, we’re sure you’ll make connections with our faculty who are excited to help you on your educational journey. At Clarion, none of our classes are taught by graduate assistants. All of our classes are taught by seasoned faculty, most of whom have doctorates from prestigious institutions across the country. These faculty members truly care about Clarion and its students.
One way Clarion shows it cares about its students is through the Center for First Year Experience. The goal of the Center for First Year Experience is to provide a supportive environment to ease the transition of our first year students into the academic, cultural and social life of Clarion University. The university also offers ways to help students thrive with the Student Success Center. Under this center, you'll find Advising Services, Disability Support, Educational Talent Search, Minority Student Services, TRiO Support Programs, Tutoring & Learning Skills, Upward Bound and Writing Center.
Another tool to help you along the way is Career Services. Career Services can help you build a sharp resume and prepare you for job interviews. Both resume reviews and mock interviews are available through Career Services.
Throughout your educational journey, don’t forget to keep track of the Academic Calendar. You’ll want to remember important dates that mark the semester such as holidays and examination periods. Be sure to fill your academic calendar by researching the Catalog and Class Schedules. You’ll want to allow yourself time to succeed academically, but also have time to make memories socially.
One of the most important aspects of your college career is the registrar’s office. The registrar’s office is home to a variety of academic services and functions such as registration, drop/add for classes, withdrawals, information regarding graduation, transcripts and more. The office also is where you learn about key policies regarding your academic progress and success.
For graduate students, be sure to check out Graduate Student Services, where you’ll find key information and forms necessary for earning that advanced degree.
