How Do I Enroll?
In order to officially enroll in the College, you will need to reply to your offer of admission through your Bard Portal. See the instructional video below: How to Access Your Bard Portal. Submit your deposit by May 1 (which is the deadline for entering first-year students). You have the option for online payment using your Bard portal or you can indicate that you are paying by check in the portal. If paying by check, the checked must be postmarked no later than May 1. See the instructional video below: How to Reply to Our Offer of Admission.
After submitting your enrollment deposit, you will receive instructions in your portal on how to activate your bard account and email. Once you activate your account, about 2-4 business days later, an Enrollment Tab will appear on your portal. In that tab, you will see your Enrollment Checklist. See the instructional videos below: How to Set Up Your Bard Account and Email; and How to Navigate Your Enrollment Checklist.
NOTE: Financial Aid awards need to be accepted online and required documents must be received so that awards can be processed and credited to your tuition billing statement in a timely manner. See the instructional video below: How to Accept Your Financial Aid Offer; and How to Access and Pay Your Tuition Bill
