Welcome, Transfer Students!
Questions? E-mail Lora Seery (email@example.com), Associate Dean of Students.
What We Do
The associate dean supports transfer students as they make their transition to Bard. We recognize that students coming to Bard from other institutions of higher education have a unique Bard experience, especially in their first year at the College. We are here to help! Don't hesitate to get in touch.
Spring Transfer Student Arrival
We look forward to welcoming you to Bard for the spring 2014 semester! Transfer students should plan to arrive on campus on January 22 between 10:00 a.m. and noon in the south lobby of the Reem-Kayden Center. Academic orientation, advising, and registration will take place on January 23 and 24.
Transfer candidates with less than a year of college coursework may be required to participate in Bard’s first-year program, as determined by the Registrar of the College.
Am I Exempt from Bard's First-Year Program?
Transfer candidates who have been full-time students and will have completed at least one year of college coursework at the time of matriculation at Bard (as determined by the Registrar of the College) are exempt from the College’s first-year program. They also have the option to take First-Year Seminar.
Bard's Curriculum Even if they arrive at Bard with 64 transferable credits and junior-class standing, transfers may not be prepared to moderate into the Upper College by the end of their first semester at Bard, and are therefore granted two semesters in which to complete their moderation.
