Admission Procedures

Applications to the BGC are submitted online. Prospective students should consult our online academic catalogue. All applications are due by January 9th, 2015. Prospective students should consult our online academic catalogue which includes program information and application instructions. Please know that you are very welcome to contact the Academic Programs Office at any point if you should have questions. Feel free to e-mail me directly at simon@bgc.bard.edu.

I also encourage you to attend one of our open houses, at which members of the faculty and staff are available to answer questions, lead tours of our building, and talk about financial aid and admission procedures. This fall, our open houses will be held on Sunday, October 12, 2014; Sunday, October 26, 2014; Sunday, November 9, 2014; and Monday, December 1, 2014. We hope to see you at one of these! Registration is required, which you may do here.

To learn more about the the daily goings-on at the BGC, read my Dean's blog, Learning from Things: Behind the Scenes at the BGC. You can also follow BGC Admissions on Twitter.

Choosing a graduate school is a serious matter, but the process of admission should never be an ordeal. Please feel comfortable asking me any questions you may have as you go through the process.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm wishes,
