As you consider course options, you will also need to consider the issue of financing a Barnard education. We know that you want the very best, and we would like to help you consider the options. A summary of annual fees as well as alternative payment and federal loan options offered by Barnard are available.
In planning your budget, please note:
These requirements are outlined in "Terms and Conditions of Residence Hall Living." Please note that Dining Dollars alone are not considered a meal plan.
Invoices for the fall term will be mailed in early July for resolution by August 1 to avoid a progressive late payment fee. Invoices for the spring semester will be mailed in early November for payment by December 1. Late fees begin at $75; there is no grace period.
If you prefer not to pay fall tuition and fee charges in full by the semester deadlines of August 1 and December 1, the Tuition Management Systems (TMS) Payment Plan at www.barnard.afford.com may offer you a realistic and attractive alternative. Please apply before the deadline to avoid Barnard's escalating late payment fee. (Although the annual 10-month TMS Plan begins on July 1, you may join later by making all past due payments. A five month plan for spring begins on December 1. Note that late fees will be assessed after these deadlines.)
If you are interested in applying for a Federal Direct Stafford Student Loan or a Federal Direct PLUS (Parent) loan, you can obtain information and applications from Barnard’s Office of Financial Aid.
