- IDP registrants must complete readings in advance of their IDP date. (2021 Readings will be posted in early September.) The workshop is an important part of IDP. Applicants MUST attend the workshop and discuss the associated readings in order to get a clear sense of what a Bard class is like. This workshop is not graded and does not factor into the admission process - its purpose is to provide IDP applicants with an authentic Bard College experience!
