Transfer Students

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's of Arts program—either as sophomores or first-year students with advanced standing.

Simon’s Rock welcomes applications from Bard High School Early College graduates wishing to transfer into the Upper College program. As affiliates in the Bard network, Simon’s Rock and Bard High School Early Colleges both offer young people similar strong foundations for advanced work in the liberal arts and sciences. Simon’s Rock can be a great fit for BHSEC graduates seeking to continue their education in a highly individualized program of study on a small, close-knit campus with the kind of personalized attention and high academic standards they have come to expect.
