Hanover, New Hampshire
SAT/ACT mins: Since testing is only one of many factors considered, there are no minimums set for ACT, SAT or SAT subject tests. However, admission to Dartmouth is highly competitive. For averages and middle 50% range on tests see http://www.dartmouth.edu/admissions/facts/test-stats.html
SAT or ACT Scores must not be more than: 5 years old, and students who have been away from school for more than 5 years may request a testing waiver (see http://www.dartmouth.edu/admissions/apply/transfer/testing.html)
LSP Application deadline: The Early Decision (ED) application deadline is October 1st, and the Regular Decision (RD) deadline is December 1st. ED is a binding program for applicants who know that Dartmouth is their first choice; decisions for ED applicants are issued by mid-December.)
In the past, we have worked with deployed active duty personnel to adjust RD application deadlines if needed. We’re happy to continue to do so.
Where to find application: Students apply to Dartmouth using the Common Application (commonapp.org). Applicants apply online through commonapp.org or download forms from the website http://www.dartmouth.edu/admissions/apply/
Freshmen class report date: Orientation typically starts during the first week of September and pre-Orientation activities begin in late August. The fall term will begin on or near September 10.
Yellow Ribbon participant: Yes, for 2012-2013 Dartmouth is a Yellow Ribbon school.
Will you cover difference between tuition minus GI Bill and cost of in state "state" school tuition? Or do you want to keep it to in-state residents? Tuition and fees for in-state and out-of-state students are the same at Dartmouth.
Do you want to donate additional money to each applicant should the need arise? Dartmouth guarantees to meet the full financial need of all students who qualify and for all four years of undergraduate study. We are also “need-blind” in our admissions review process (which means that applying for financial aid does not impact one’s chances for admission).
Processing fees: $80.00 for first-year applicants; $90.00 for Transfer applicants.
All majors open to Marines? Yes. Dartmouth does not admit by major or by program. Students must declare a major by the end of their fifth academic term (sooner if admitted as a transfer student).
Recognize AA degree or any college course work:
Dartmouth grants credit for college course work on a course-by-course basis, awarding credit for each course that qualifies.
Earning an Associate’s Degree does not guarantee credit for course work.
Dartmouth does not grant credit for online course work and awards credits for community college courses only for US military veterans (and only for courses that meet the approval of the faculty).
Recognize awarding of college credits via alternative means, e.g., DANTES or CLEP: Beginning with students entering in fall of 2014, Dartmouth will no longer grant course credit for AP, A-level, or IB examinations. Other alternative credit programs such as CLEP are not accepted.
