Tuition and Fees

Upon acceptance of admission, new students pay a nonrefundable deposit of $515. This deposit is due two weeks after notification of admission and financial aid decisions. The balance of tuition and fees for the academic year is billed in two equal installments. Billing statements reflect tuition, fees, and credits for scholarships, fellowships, and approved student loans. Payments are due in the beginning of August and January for the fall and spring semesters, respectively.

Bard MBA offers variety of options for financial assistance to reduce the cost of attendance. Students may apply for fellowships, campus employment positions, or student loans.  All assistance awards are made without regard to sex, sexual orientation, race, color, age, marital status, religion, ethnic or national origin, or handicapping conditions.
