Should I apply?
Use Dartmouth's cost estimator or the College Board's financing calculator to help determine if you may qualify for financial aid.
How do I apply?
The application process for financial aid is completed online and is processed separately from the application for admission. Financial Aid application deadlines and forms are included with the checklist for each admission cycle.
- All applicants for financial aid will submit the College Board's CSS/Financial Aid Profile. The Profile is an online application that collects information used by hundreds of colleges and scholarship programs to award financial aid. By using the Profile, applicants can enter financial information for multiple colleges in one location. Students are charged a fee for use of the Profile, but fee waivers will be automatically granted to those who qualify (based on the information entered by the student and their family).
- United States citizens and Permanent Residents will also file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) when applying for financial aid. The FAFSA is used to determine eligibility for federal funds that may be included in your financial aid award.
- After submitting the Profile, applicants who live in the United States (regardless of citizenship) will be receive information from the College Board about filing any required additional documentation through the secure Institutional Documentation Service (IDOC).
- The Dartmouth Office of Financial Aid website includes all of the information that you'll need to know when applying for financial aid.
