At its meeting in March, the Board of Trustees set the College's tuition and mandatory fees for the 2006-2007 academic year at $33,501, an increase of 4.8 percent (or $1,536) over the current year's tuition rate. With room, board, and mandatory fees, next year's overall charges will be $43,341.
The rates apply to students in the arts and sciences at Dartmouth, including all undergraduates as well as students in arts and sciences graduate programs, and all students in Dartmouth's Thayer School of Engineering, which offers both undergraduate and graduate programs. Tuition charges for Dartmouth Medical School will be $36,050 per year, a 4.5 percent increase, and for Dartmouth's Tuck School of Business $40,650, a 5.9 percent increase.
"Regarding undergraduate tuition, the Board of Trustees and the Dartmouth administration are absolutely committed to keeping a Dartmouth education within the reach of students of limited financial means," says President James Wright. "Our goal continues to be to draw students of exceptional talent from all areas of society and to provide them the best undergraduate education available anywhere. To that end, we continue our longstanding commitment to a 'need-blind' admissions policy and to meeting the financial need of the students we admit."
