Policies

  • Dartmouth's admissions policy is "Need-Blind." This means that admission applications are reviewed and accepted based solely on a student's qualifications and not on their ability to pay.
  • Dartmouth College is committed to meeting 100% of every student's demonstrated need, following federal and institutional guidelines, during their four years of undergraduate study.
  • Dartmouth Scholarships are 100% need-based; we do not offer any aid based on merit, talent or other criteria.
  • A student's demonstrated need is reassessed each year, and the financial aid package is adjusted as necessary.
