The Clarion Admissions team knows that this is a trying time for secondary school counselors, and our hope is to help support you through this. Due to social distancing and work being performed remotely, we will be accepting electronic copies of high school transcripts, recommendation letters and essays for admission review.
We appreciate and value your hard work and dedication, and we hope this page provides some useful resources for helping students make one of the most exciting decisions of their young lives.
Finding the perfect match for your college-bound students is no easy task. Our goal
is to enroll students who will be a good match both academically and socially to Clarion
and you play a very important role in helping them explore their options. We look
forward to working with you, your staff, and your seniors to ensure the successes
of the next class of Clarion University students. Please contact us if you have any
questions, comments, or concerns.
We're here to help!
