Option 2: Bard Budget Plan

The Bard Budget Plan (BBP) is an alternative payment system and allows student account payments of required fees to be made in 10 installments from July through the following April. The plan participant receives a billing statement each month. In order to maintain enrollment in the BBP, a participant's account must be kept current each month. A €30 annual application fee covers administration of the plan and is due by July 30. This once-a-year, nonrefundable fee is not reflected in the installment amount. Enrollment after July 30 will be accepted if an initial payment equal to the amount required to cover all missed payments is made. To apply for the BBP, please contact the Financial Aid Office (studentaccounts@berlin.bard.edu).
