Checklist for Spring Term

Your journey to Bennington continues here! We want to start to get to know you—your academic interests, your living preferences, who we should contact in case of emergency, and so on. Use the checklist below as your guide for what to do when.

At Bennington, email is our primary mode of communication. Students typically check and respond to email twice a day. Bring good habits to Bennington by checking your email frequently. It’s how we will contact you if we have questions about your course preferences or roommate information and housing assignment, and how we will send you information on accessing student employment opportunities on campus.

If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask. And if you have any issues registering your Bennington account or logging into a form, please email
