Bard College Replaces Campus Tours with Virtual Let's Meet Sessions Until August 31
The Bard College Office of Admission canceled all campus tours through Monday, August 31 and replaced them with online Let's Meet sessions. Let's Meet sessions will allow prospective students and their families to join virtual information and Q&A sessions hosted by an admission counselor and a current Bard student. You can register for these sessions by going to this webpage. We apologize for the inconvenience this might cause and want you to know that we are available for additional conversations by phone and email.
Although this is an open campus, we are recommending that you do not visit campus during this time.
NEWS! Starting in September, Bard will host live virtual campus tours. Registration and more information will be posted later this month!
We know this is a difficult time. We wish you well and hope that you will reach out to us if you have any questions at all.
