Most students interested in applying for transfer admission to Simon’s Rock are seeking admission as juniors to take advantage of the College’s bachelor of arts program; however, we also welcome students with some college work who wish to be admitted into the Lower College—the College’s associate of arts program—either as sophomores or first-year students with advanced standing.
Are you in your second year of the associate of arts at one of the Bard High School Early College (BHSEC) programs? If so, you may consider transferring to Bard College at Simon’s Rock to finish your bachelor of arts program.
