Paying for Your Education

A Barnard education supercharges your intellectual growth, your personal transformation, and the likelihood that you’ll change the world, so we’re determined to make it a realistic option for you, regardless of your family finances.

Your application to Barnard is more than a list of your accomplishments. For us, it is a window into who you are — your values, your interests, your whole self. 

Christina Lopez, Dean of Enrollment Management

Access and Support Programs

Barnard has multiple programs to help first-generation and low-income students flourish here. The beautiful result: a community of women that represents the city, the country, the world. 

When I returned as an admitted student, my host showed me her favorite neighborhood spots, and the admissions counselor who read my application stopped me to tell me she remembered my file.
