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. 

I love spending my afternoons leading prospective students and their families on campus tours! Working for the Admissions Office has been one of the many highlights of my time at Barnard, and it has helped me realize my desire for a career in higher education.
