School Overview

With a total annual enrollment of just over 16,000 full and part-time students, Clark Community College in Vancouver, Washington is one of the largest community colleges in the state. The college was founded in 1933 and was originally established as a private junior college that offered two-year programs. Today the college is a public institution that offers two-year associate degrees and adult education courses. Several of Clark’s degree programs are designed for students who intend on transfering to a four-year college or university to pursue a bachelor’s degree, while others (e.g nursing, dental hygiene, welding, etc.) are designed to prepare students to enter the workforce upon graduation.

Clark College’s main campus is just over 100 acres just southwest of Water Works Park in Central Park. The college’s campus is home to several unique buildings and structures including an equatorial sun dial. Another noteworthy feature is the Carillon Chime Tower which as been operating since 1964.

Clark has strategic partnerships and/or articulation agreements with several four-year universities in the region including Washington State University Vancouver, Portland State University, Concordia University and Eastern Washington University (EWU). Through its partnership with EWU, Clark College is able to offers qualifying students the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree in social work, dental hygiene or technology, as well as a master’s degree in social work–which requires three years to complete.
