Clarkson Admission Decisions Class of 2025

Please provide your admission decisions in the same post with the stats:

of APs or Dual Credit

May the Decision be in your favor!

Clarkson decisions have gone out in the mail on Tuesday (first batch) with the final batch going out today! It will not show up on the portal, as they are old school and it comes in the mail. Good luck all!


My daughter just received her acceptance for Chemical Engineering in the mail today (1/21/21)! Now she needs to decide how far away from home she wants to be.

We live in central Massachusetts near the RI border.

AP English Comp - 3

Do you mind posting her stats (see initial post) @Hbw2019 ? This way, future years applicants can get a good idea of what it takes to get in. Also, did you get a scholarship offer at the same time for merit? Do you also mind stating what general part of the country you are in so we know how long notification is taking? Thanks and congrats to your daughter!

All fixed! Thanks for the reminder!

Invitations to interview for the Honors Program are out.

Does anyone have insight into what the interviews are like? Are they done as a panel or one on one, etc.?

I would assume they’re one on one. From the email it seems like they’re with a professor/staff member and a current student. Haven’t done the interview yet though. Signed up for one next week.

My daughter’s interview is in about an hour. She’s a bit nervous, but I told her to do it anyway for the interview practice. My father and brother both went there which is part of the reason she applied, but she’s concerned about the distance from home in MA.

Does anyone know when Honors Program notifications will go out? I know there’s the event tonight.

Answering my own question. DS contacted his admissions counselor. She said that they mailed the decision yesterday and they will show up on the portal on Monday.
