  • Students living on campus: Students living on campus are not allowed to return home on weekends; dorm rooms and meal plans are paid for by the program.
  • All Clark Students Must Have a Photo ID for Comet Card Pick-Up: Students will need a valid Driver’s License (with a photo) or a US Passport to pick-up their Comet Card.
