As part of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF) under the CARES Act, Bard received $1,032,393 for its campus in Annandale and its subsidiary, Longy. Of those funds, $1,025,967.32 is to be distributed to Title IV recipients in Annandale. For those without Pell grants, Title IV recipients will receive $330 for eligible expenses incurred as the result of the Covid pandemic. For Pell-eligible students, the relief funds will map to the percentage of the Pell grant that an individual is eligible for up to $1,385 maximum check. For example, a student who is receiving a maximum Pell grant, will receive $1,385; whereas a student who receives a 50% Pell award will receive a check of $692.50 (50% of $1,385).
By accepting these funds, you certify that you will use the funds for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19, such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care and childcare. Funds received in excess of such eligible expenses should be returned to the College.
A student who takes a leave of absence or withdraws after the first day of classes must complete a leave or withdrawal form at the Dean of Students Office. The forms must include an official leave/withdrawal date, which will determine if a refund will be given and the amount of such a refund. If a refund is applicable to the students' account, please contact the Student Accounts Office by phone or in writing to request such refund.
Refunds and Financial Aid
Financial aid recipients should also confer with the Financial Aid Office to determine the amount of aid that is removed from their student account. If the leave or withdrawal date is before the first day of expected arrival, the semester charges are reversed in full. If the leave or withdrawal date is on or after the first day of classes, tuition and board can be refunded on a prorated basis; no refunds are given for required fees and room charges. No refunds for tuition are given for leaves/withdrawals outside of the below refund schedules. The full meal plan charge for the current semester remains on the account if the student withdraws during the last six weeks of the semester.
