Immunization Requirements at Bard
Bard College is mandated by New York State law to enforce this requirement. Bard College submits an annual report to the NYS Department of Health, and is also subject to audits by the State regarding the students' immunizations.
Providing proof of immunization is a preadmission requirement. Students found in violation of this requirement via NYS audit will be billed the fine, which is currently $2000.
Immunization and medical forms are due JULY 1st or 30 days prior to your first semester at Bard. Registration for classes may be blocked if the forms are not on file by the start of the semester.
