Aw, bummer. I’m sorry to hear it. Unfortunately, as you’ve probably already guessed, the freshman application period for this fall is 100% closed, since we’re currently in the process of sending out decisions to fall 2013 applicants.
However, you should know that a spring transfer is still very much a possibility. In order to qualify as a ‘transfer student’ (for application purposes), you’ll need to have graduated high school and enrolled at another college for at least a term. Spring transfer applications are due by November 1st (along with the FAFSA and financial aid app) and notifications are sent out in early December. So keep that in mind, if you keep researching Bennington and continue to be intrigued.
Also, come visit us! Regardless of whether you decide to apply for next term or next year or even not at all, visiting campus really is the best way to get a sense of what Bennington is like on a daily basis. You can sit in on a class, get a personalized tour, eat lunch with students, and (my favorite) just wander and explore. You can schedule a visit on our website or call Admissions at (802)440-4312 to have us schedule one for you.
Whatever you decide, best of luck!
Hi, friendly anon. Bennington DOES have rolling admissions, but ONLY for fall transfer students. The application deadlines are as follows:
