Transfer ApplicantsThe Conservatory welcomes transfer applications from students currently attending other conservatories, liberal arts colleges, and universities. Applicants must submit a Bard College Transfer Application in addition to the Bard Conservatory Application. Upon favorable review of the prescreening materials, invitations will be extended to audition at Bard College or New York City on an ad hoc basis. Please consult the Bard College admission page for general information on completing the Transfer Application.

Fall semester start transfer applicants for the Conservatory are welcome (and strongly encouraged) to submit their materials by the January 1 regular undergraduate deadline so that they can audition along with first-year applicants in early March.
