Payment Options

The annual comprehensive fees are payable in four installments per year: the fall term costs in June and July, and the spring term costs in November and December. The College offers the Bard Budget Plan (BBP), which allows payments of the comprehensive fees to be made in 10 installments. Registered students may deposit funds to be used at the bookstore, dining services, and for printing services. Funds are accessed with the student identification card. Monies deposited in these accounts must be used toward purchases and cannot be refunded or transferred.

Tuition Prepayment Plan

Bard College offers a four-year tuition prepayment plan to incoming first-year students who do not receive financial aid toward tuition costs. The cost of tuition for each year of the student’s four-year tenure is stabilized at the first-year amount. For those electing this option, payment of $216,840 (4 x the 2018–19 tuition of $54,210) is due by June 20, 2018. We regret that payment extensions beyond this date are not available. If a student withdraws from the College before completing four years of study, the excess credit balance is refundable. The prepayment plan applies to tuition only; room, board, and fees are payable as due.  If you plan to use this payment option for the tuition cost, please complete the four-year tuition prepayment form and return it to the Student Accounts Office along with your payment.
