Enrollment Requirements

Financial Clearance

Students’ accounts must be current with respect to payments and financial aid matters before financial clearance is issued for participation in registration and room draw and for start-of-term enrollment validation. The financial clearance dates are noted on statements and in correspondence sent both to parents or guardians and to students prior to these scheduled events.

Accounts not cleared prior to the financial clearance dates are subject to financial holds; a $100 fee is applicable before such holds are removed.

We encourage you to call the Office of Student Accounts in advance of these dates to verify the financial clearance status of the account, in order to avoid unexpected complications.

Annual Enrollment Deposit

For first-time applicants, the $500 annual deposit is due by May 1, 2016; for returning students it is due by April 15, only if the deposit was deducted from the final installment payment of the Spring semester costs. Note that it is a deposit for the entire 2016–17 academic year, not just for the fall 2016 semester. The deposit is made in spring 2016 for purposes of housing and course selection for the upcoming fall term and is retained for purposes of registration for the following spring term. The deposit may be applied toward the final payment for the 2017 spring term or left on the account to be used as the deposit payment for the following academic year. VIEW MORE >>

Enrollment Confirmation

Each April and October, students must declare, in writing, their plans with respect to taking a leave of absence, academic or personal, studying at one of Bard's auxiliary programs, or withdrawing from the next term.  Students who are enrolled at the Annandale campus must complete the Status form in person at the Office of Student Accounts.  Students who are enrolled in a Bard auxiliary program or who are on a leave can send written notifications as to their plans of continuing their leave or returning to Annandale campus, via email or regular mail.  VIEW MORE >>
