First-Year and Transfer Information Session
Do you have questions about Barnard's admissions and financial aid processes? Sign up for one of our live online information sessions!
Topics covered in our online information session will answer the following frequently asked questions:
- What does an interdisciplinary liberal arts curriculum look like at Barnard - and what does liberal arts mean, anyway?
- How does Barnard's partnership with Columbia work, and how do Barnard students take advantage of being in New York City?
- What are the unique benefits of a women's college experience?
- What qualities are admissions officers looking for when reviewing applications and what is required to apply?
Barnard Admissions staff members will be available to answer your questions live during each session.
In the meantime, you can request a recorded version of our information session aimed at prospective first-year applicants to Barnard.
Intro to Student Life @ Barnard
Intro to Student Life @ Barnard is a virtual chat with current Barnard students providing you with the opportunity to have your 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: Intro to Student Life @ Barnard serves 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 email@example.com.
Virtual Campus Tours
Whether you have been able to visit campus in-person or you can't make it to New York, we are excited to offer a live virtual campus tour option! Led by a student tour guide, these Zoom tours will take you around spaces that are not available on an in-person campus tour, such as classrooms, laboratories, residence halls, academic centers, and more.
“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.”
