Bard College

Tuition & Aid
Bottom line

In general, a Bard education is high quality, with a high cost unusually well balanced for a school of its caliber with financial aid defrayments. 97 percent of first years, and 94 percent of undergraduates overall, who demonstrate need receive some form of scholarship or grant aid, and 70 percent of undergraduates total receive some form of aid. Less than half of Bard students must borrow in order to pay for school, and their average cumulative indebtedness upon graduation is less than $25,000, or less than one full year of tuition. Overall, Bard clearly works hard to deliver an education that students feel is worth it, both in terms of academic quality and in terms of the school’s financial support.
