Award Procedures for International Students

Prospective students' files are maintained in the Admission Office along with their admission documents. The Admission Office reviews the Declaration of Finances for each student. Upon notifying the student about admission, assuming that the decision is favorable, the Financial Aid Office will prepare a response to the student about financial aid. At times the need of the student is far greater than the College's resources can meet. In such a case, the Admission Office will correspond with the student, stating that no offer of aid is being made due to that fact. The student in this case is given an opportunity to submit a new Declaration of Finances, indicating available resources to be higher.

Financial Aid Packages

Financial aid packages are mailed and e-mailed to new candidates in early April. Packaging for new candidates begins in late March. Students are notified of their package in a financial aid award letter, assuming that an admission decision has been made and Bard has received all of the necessary financial aid application materials. Packaging of returning students is done early May.
