Bard College offers a four-year tuition prepayment plan to incoming first-year students who do not receive financial aid toward tuition costs. The cost of tuition for each year of the student’s four-year tenure is stabilized at the first-year amount. For those electing this option, payment of $222,264 (4 x the 2019–20 tuition of $55,566) is due by June 20, 2019. We regret that payment extensions beyond this date are not available. If a student withdraws from the College before completing four years of study, the excess credit balance is refundable. The prepayment plan applies to tuition only; room, board, and fees are payable as due. If you plan to use this payment option for the tuition cost, please complete the four-year tuition prepayment form and return it to the Student Accounts Office along with your payment.
If making a payment in office or by mail in the form of a check, money order, or cashier's check, please make it payable to Bard College and include the student's name and ID number.

Wire or Electronic Transfer of Funds Wiring or Electronic Transfer of funds may require a processing time of three to five days or longer, and accrue bank processing fees of at least $35.00, depending on the banks involved. When arranging a wire or electronic transfer, please remember to add this processing cost to the amount being transferred. If a wiring or electronic transfer fee retained by a bank creates a balance due on the student's account, it remains as an unpaid balance due; it is not absorbed by the College.
Please contact the Office of Student Accounts for wiring information.
