General Information on the Account Statement
- The Total Amount Due: This total reflects both the deduction of all potential financial aid and anticipated credits. If you have other anticipated aid items that are not reflected on your statement, please use the Payment Explanation Form to disclose this information to us. If you are mailing a payment, a copy of the account statement should be enclosed indicating any deductions that you are making from the Total Amount Due, or you may enclose a separate sheet of paper that also has the name and student ID number printed on it.
- Payment Instructions: You may either use the “Make a Payment” button to make an electronic payment or mail a payment. If mailing the payment, please make the check payable to Dartmouth College and return it with a copy of the statement to: Dartmouth College/STAC, 6132 McNutt Hall, Room 103, Hanover, NH 03755-3541. Your check must be payable in U.S. dollars. Foreign currency will not be accepted. Dartmouth does not accept credit or debit card payments.
- Authorized Financial Aid: Financial aid credits that appear in this category have been approved for payment but have not been disbursed. Disbursement will automatically occur on predetermined future dates. Following disbursement, the aid will appear on the account statement in the Current Payments section. Authorized Financial Aid/Special Payments & Credits appearing on the account statement reduces the amount due accordingly.
- Anticipated Credits: Items in this category generally include financial aid credits that have not been authorized for payment by the Financial Aid Office due to outstanding processing requirements. Other anticipated credits may be scholarships or non-federal loans from sponsors or external agencies. Once authorized or received, these credits will appear on account statement as Authorized Financial Aid or Current Payments depending upon the processing date. Note: failure to submit requested documents to the Financial Aid Office may result in the forfeiture of anticipated funds. Anticipated Credits appearing on the account statement reduces the amount due accordingly.
