Online Application

Step 1: Complete the Online Undergraduate Application.

Clarkson College and its educational offerings are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Our graduates are allowed to sit for national licensure board examinations. Because state licensure requirements vary by state, Clarkson College is unable to ascertain licensure requirements in every state. It is up to the individual student to be aware of and abide by licensure requirements in the states in which the student chooses to obtain licensure and employment.

Clarkson College is currently authorized to offer online education in the following states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, Nevada, North Dakota, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia and Wyoming. In addition, Clarkson College is able to offer limited online programs in Colorado, Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, and Washington. If you reside in a state offering limited online programs and wish to apply, please contact us at 800.647.5500 prior to completing the application process.

While the College has aimed to offer online education in various other states throughout the nation, specific state requirements have made it cost-prohibitive or unreasonable at this time. We are optimistic about expanding our reach in the future, as state authorization is a fluid situation that is subject to change.
