Transfer Orientation Programs
All transfer students are required to complete an orientation program. The orientation programs are designed to help students connect with each other and Bard faculty, become familiar with Bard's Annandale campus, and work on their writing and critical thinking skills, building upon the college experiences they bring with them from other institutions of higher education.
Transfer students enrolling in the fall complete an orientation program in August and transfer students enrolling in the spring complete an orientation program in January. Exact dates and details are shared with students well in advance of their arrival.
