Which forms must be returned?On this page, there are documents to read, there are forms that are to be filled out if applicable, and there are mandatory forms. The mandatory matriculation forms, which all students must submit, are the following:
- Housing Profile
- Medical Forms
- Student Health Insurance Plan/Opt-Out Waiver: All students attending Bard are required to have health insurance.
Students are automatically enrolled in the College’s health insurance plan, although enrollment may be waived if the student is determined to have comparable coverage (through self, parent, spouse, etc.). If a student is not approved to opt out of the plan, he or she will be required to buy the Bard College health insurance and the charge will be reflected on the Student Account bill.
Please read the Student Health Insurance Plan/Opt-Out Waiver document to understand the type of coverage you will need at Bard and to find the instructions on how to opt-out of Bard's health insurance plan.
International students also need to read "Attention Non-US Citizens" below, which describes approved health insurance plans should you decide not to use Bard's health insurance plan.NOTE:
-The matriculation forms below are for 2018 Spring Transfer Students and Exchange Students.
-The matriculation forms will be updated in March 2018 for incoming Fall 2018 First Year and Transfer Students.
