Applying to Bard College at Simon's Rock

Your application is not a set of numbers but an expression of your character, ambitions, imagination and intelligence. We ask for all of the standard information—recommendations and transcripts—but we also ask you to do a good deal of writing. For all applicants, we require a personal interview with a member of our staff. There’s no script, no set list of questions, and no right answers; we just want to know you as a live, talking, thinking person. College entrance tests are optional for most students, and we welcome applications from home-schooled and international students.

You can begin college at Simon’s Rock in either the fall (August) or spring (January) semesters. We encourage you to apply early for admission and financial aid, since admission decisions are made as applications are completed, and financial aid is awarded on a first come first served basis. An applicant will usually receive an admission decision within several weeks of completing all application requirements.
