Important information about cash payments to Clark University

Clark University is required to file IRS Form 8300 on behalf of all students who pay $10,000 or more in cash within a 12 month period. If a student's total cash payments for a 12 month period equal or exceed $10,000, the student must bring their passport or current driver's license to the Cashier's office when making payment.

Students 60 or Older

Students 60 or older may register for credit, on a space-available basis, for one undergraduate course per semester for $100 plus any relevant fees. Students must contact the COPACE office prior to registering for a course. Additional courses will be charged at full-tuition rates. The 60-or-older tuition benefit does not apply to independent study, directed readings, some off-campus programs or to graduate courses. Students wishing to be assured a space in class where enrollments are limited should pay full tuition when registering. (All students are encouraged to donate to this "over 60" program or any other COPACE scholarship program.)

Course Withdrawal Refunds

The student must fill out a course drop slip in the COPACE office. Please see the academic calendar for specific dates and refund percentages. Alumni Enrichment, 60 or older and Friends of COPACE scholarships are non-refundable except in the case of a course cancelled by COPACE.
