Current Students

Students who are admitted to Barnard with a Barnard College Grant may expect grants in future years if they continue to meet economic and academic eligibility and reapply for financial aid each year. The deadline to apply for financial aid for 2019-2020 is April 15th, 2019.

All continuing students will receive access to a new Financial Aid Portal for the 2019-2020 academic year. The new portal includes a section to securely upload all documents and a personalized financial aid checklist that will allow students to track the status of their application as documents are reviewed. All applicants should review their financial aid checklist on a regular basis to ensure all required documents have been received.

Notification of financial aid awards for students who have submitted all required documents will be posted in the portal before the first week of July, 2019.
