Guidelines for Pre-Registration

One of the most important things to remember as you imagine what you might enroll in is that you have several years to take classes. For your first term at Bennington, you should explore as widely as possible. Develop your passions, certainly, but open yourself to discovering others. Your goal is to build a schedule that incorporates a variety of subjects (e.g. music, biology, literature, visual arts) and approaches (performance, labs, reading, writing, studio work).

Step-by-Step
