Topics covered in our online information session will answer the following frequently asked questions:

Barnard Admissions staff members will be available to answer your questions live during each session.

Ask A Student Chats
Ask A Student is a virtual chat with current Barnard students providing you with the opportunity to have your Barnard questions answered. The chat is a face-to-face Zoom meeting with a small number of participants to allow for a unique, interactive experience.
Note: the Ask A Student chats serve as a solely informative space and hold no evaluative impact on the student if they choose to apply. Barnard does not track demonstrated interest.
This experience is for prospective students only. Parents/guardians and counselors of prospective students are welcome to connect with the Office of Admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Optional interviews are available to prospective first-year applicants who are considering applying to Barnard for Fall 2021 admission. Interviews are short conversations with a staff member, Barnard alumna, or current senior trained to conduct interviews.
Interviews allow our admissions team to get to know you beyond your written application. An interview is both informational and evaluative in nature, allowing you to learn about Barnard and for us to learn more about your curiosities, interests, and experiences.
“When I visited as a prospective student, I had a unique perspective because I came for a regular tour rather than any of the admitted students’ events. Seeing Barnard in its natural habitat was what helped me decide to come! I got to witness so many students moving with drive, passion, and purpose through campus and the larger NYC community, and I knew I wanted to become one of them myself. Now, as a Barnard student, I know that it is the community on campus that has taught me the most —about myself, about the work I want to produce, about the world at large.”
