Applications with Special Circumstances

Bennington welcomes applications from students with non-traditional backgrounds.

Transfer Students

Our transfer students are part of a growing community at Bennington, often adding clear ideas about what they are seeking from an education.

Advanced Coursework

First-year entrants to Bennington may submit college transcripts and scores from AP tests, IB higher-level exams, A-level exams, and French baccalaureate exams to be evaluated for credit.

Early Entrance and Early College

We regularly review early entrance applications from qualified students who are prepared for college before they have graduated from high school.

Home-Schooled Students

Applicants enrolled in home-school programs follow the same application procedures as first-year or transfer applicants, with some changes to the requirements.
