Academic Affairs

The mission of Academic Affairs is to assist students and faculty in managing their academic business.

Through the Office of the Registrar, we help students maintain their course schedules and advisor status; receive transcripts, verification letters, and transfer credits; and propose tutorials, independent studies, and extended campus projects. The academic services coordinator helps students arrange private music lessons through the Community Music Program, take courses at Bard College, and apply for internships, Simon’s Rock merit scholarships, and external scholarships and grants such as Fulbright and Rhodes Scholarships. The dean of Academic Affairs is responsible for curriculum development, upholding academic policies, and academic strategic planning.
