Early College Network and Opportunity Scholarship Program

An increasing number of Bard Early College (BEC) graduates choose to pursue their B.A. degrees at Bard’s main campus in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York. In recognition of the synergy between academic programs in the Bard network, and in order to facilitate a smooth transition from the Early Colleges to the B.A. program, we offer BEC students curricular counseling and preregistration for classes. Applicants who demonstrate significant financial need may also apply for Early College Opportunity (ECO) scholarships, which provide grants covering up to full tuition.
