The Dartmouth Admissions Office welcomes and values our collaborative working relationships with counselors and advisors from secondary schools, community-based organizations, and scholarship foundations. You are important partners in helping to guide students through the complicated college search and application process.
Please take a moment to join our counselor mailing list, even if you were directed to this page by an email from our office. We are actively attempting to update our counselor records, and receipt of an email message from our office is not confirmation that you are in our database for counselor communications.
If you are looking for a specific contact person in our office, please consult the Regional Responsibilities page.
We encourage you explore our admissions site and to bookmark this page for updates specifically offered for counselors about Dartmouth and our admissions activities. As we launch into the admissions cycle, here are some updates that may help you in your work with your students and our office in the coming months.

Academic and Student Life Updates
- Dartmouth's Board of Trustees has appointed Philip J. Hanlon '77 as President-Elect of Dartmouth College. The Dartmouth family is thrilled to welcome a distinguished alumnus as its 18th President. Hanlon currently serves as Provost and Professor of Mathematics at the University of Michigan. He will take office on July 1, 2013.
- For the fourth consecutive year, Dartmouth earned the top national ranking for "Strong Commitment to Teaching" from U.S. News and World Report.
- Following an October 2012 vote of the Dartmouth's Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exam results for enrolling students will be considered for course placement only, rather than for credit towards the Dartmouth degree. This new policy will take effect in the fall of 2014; it does not apply to current applicants and admitted students who will be enrolling in the fall of 2013.
- Dartmouth's distinctive and flexible calendar system, the Dartmouth Plan, allows over 60% of Dartmouth students to study abroad before graduation, one of the highest rates of study abroad participation in the nation. The College also has one of the highest percentages nationally of students completing full-time internship or fellowship experiences while enrolled.
- Dartmouth remains committed to making an Ivy League education affordable. Recently, the College expanded our free-tuition/no loan program to include all families earning less than $100,000 in annual income. This year, Dartmouth will distribute more than $80 million in need-based aid. The average scholarship for the Class of 2016 was over $40,000.
