1 All BGIA students must have health insurance coverage during the program. Students are automatically enrolled in Bard College’s health insurance plan, although enrollment may be waived if the student is determined to have comparable coverage (through self, parent, spouse, etc.). Bard College students are billed for a 12-month health insurance plan each fall, if not waived, and non-Bard students will be billed for a semester or summer of coverage. 
 
2 This is not standard health insurance. This fee is specific to the Bard College Health Service, which offers medical and mental health care including treatment for illness and injury and counseling services on Bard College's main campus in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY. This is 2+ hours north of NYC and not easily accessible. The Health Services Fee is mandatory for Bard students and billed on an annual basis. Non-Bard students can waive this fee.

3 Bard College students are not billed for the refundable facility deposit. Non-Bard students can request this refund upon completion of the program barring any damage to BGIA, 92Y or internship facilities.
