How Do I Apply?
Admissions for the 2022–2023 academic year are now closed. Bard Microcollege Holyoke holds admissions once a year, from March 1 through April 15. Admissions for Fall 2023 enrollment will open on March 1, 2023.
If you’re interested in applying for Fall 2023, you can share your name and contact information with us here and we’ll reach out to you when admissions opens in the spring.
You can also get more information by calling The Care Center at 413-532-2900.
Microcollege applicants begin by participating in a timed, in-person writing session at The Care Center. At the writing session, you’ll write an essay in response to a prompt (you should plan to spend 1.5 to 2 hours on this part of the process). After that, you’ll be contacted to start your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), and discuss your needs for childcare and transportation. Finalists will then be contacted to set up a 10-15 minute interview via Zoom.
No standardized tests or placement exams are required to apply. There is no application fee to apply to Bard Microcollege Holyoke.
