Transfer Students

Barnard meets the demonstrated need for any admitted student.  While Barnard is very proud of our policy to be need-blind for first-year students who are US citizens or permanent residents, due to our limited resources we are need-aware in our transfer admissions decision.  For students applying for the spring semester, we do not offer institutional aid.  Students are welcome, however, to apply for any federal aid.  We do offer institutional aid for students applying for the fall semester and if we admit a transfer student with need we will meet that demonstrated need.  A student who received Barnard aid upon transfer to the College may only apply for aid for the difference between eight semesters and the number of semesters for which she has received transfer credit.

Spring 2016 transfer admits are eligible to apply for federal and state aid.  You should file the FAFSA, Dependent Student Verification Worksheet, and submit the parents' and student's federal income tax return by November 1st.

Documents to be submitted directly to the Financial Aid Office may be faxed to 212-854-2902 or mailed to the Financial Aid Office, 3009 Broadway, New York, NY 10027.  Please do not email tax documents--tax documents sent via email will not be accepted.  Barnard does not participate in College Board's Institutional Document Service (IDOC).

Federal Aid Only: Students who are not interested in applying for need-based Barnard College Grant aid, but would like to take advantage of U.S. Department of Education Federal Student Aid, including Federal Direct Stafford loans and the Federal Pell Grant, are not required to complete the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE or the Noncustodial Profile.
