Financial Aid

Bard seeks to assist qualified students who might not be able to attend a private college because of the cost. In recent years, approximately two-thirds of all Bard students have received some form of assistance from the College and/or federal, state, and private programs. Domestic and international students are also eligible, based on need and merit, for Bard scholarships and loans. The average Bard Scholarship is $29,808 as of the 2012-13 academic year. Bard has a need-blind admission policy, which means admission to the College is based on the applicant’s accomplishments and promise, not on his or her ability to pay.
