BECNO allows all enrolled students the opportunity to earn college credits from Bard College, completely free of charge to students and families. This saves students and their families up to two years of college tuition, fees, and related costs.  While there are additional costs of providing a college program in high school, Bard relies on funding from public and private sources to ensure that costs are not passed on to students and families.
