Bard Immediate Decision Plan
Admission to Bard is highly competitive.The Immediate Decision Plan (IDP) is recommended for the accomplished student for whom Bard is a top choice. The IDP is designed to help students develop a more informed opinion of the College and to accelerate the admission process during a daylong session. IDP is non-binding; we strongly discourage IDP applicants from applying Early Decision to another institution.
