Dartmouth College encourages interested students to participate in Dartmouth-sponsored study away programs. Details of the sponsored programs, such as FSP, LSA or Exchange programs, administered by the Off Campus Programs Office are available here. While students apply for Exchange programs through the Off-Campus Programs Office, students who are accepted then apply to have their courses approved for transfer by submitting the Transfer Credit Approval (Form 2) in the manner described below for Transfer Terms, to the Registrar's Office.
Students also have the option to take a leave term, and to independently seek out an alternate program. This opportunity, referred to as a Transfer Term, is an option provided to students seeking to earn transfer credit towards their Dartmouth degree while studying at another institution, or a program sponsored by another institution. Transfer terms are administered by the Registrar’s Office and the Committee on Instruction. Students may transfer up to a total of four credits to Dartmouth throughout their academic career.For information on participating in a Transfer Term, see below.
To begin the process of studying away on a Non-Dartmouth sponsored program, please use the following checklist:
Before you return from your your program:
Travel Waiver (PDF)
A non-refundable, non-petitionable application fee of $1100 is assessed for the fall term, and $2200 for the winter, spring, and summer terms.
Other Institution's Fees:
Students should be aware that dates for other school's payments may not line up with Dartmouth transfer term deadlines, and therefore if they elect to participate in another institution's program they may need to make a deposit, and risk losing it, before they are notified of the outcome of their transfer term application.
Dartmouth Financial aid is not available for transfer terms. Check with a financial aid counselor regarding your situation. You may be asked to provide a copy of your approved forms to the Financial Aid Office.
Students and Parents will want to consider the safety and security of the program they are attending. Students are encouraged to register their itinerary and contact information in the Dartmouth Travel Registry at http://Dartmouth.edu/global/travel-resources/travel-registry-form This is managed by the Provost's Office.
Dartmouth does not support travel to countries that are under U.S. State Department warnings. If a student is considering traveling to one of these countries, the student must seek a Travel Waiver from the Provost's Office. For more information see http://dartmouth.edu/global/international-initiatives/travel-waiver-policy
Dartmouth’s Dickey Center for International Understanding has prepared 3 videos for travelers: Travel Safety, Health and Wellness, and Emergency Support. We encourage students to view them at http://dartmouth.edu/global/travel-resources/helpful-videos
Students attending a non-Dartmouth study away program (transfer term) are subject to the rules and regulations of the program on which they participate.
Student applications are reviewed and approved or denied by a subcommittee of the Committee on Instruction and must be submitted by the dates on the Registrar website. Normally no more than 5 students may participate in the same program in the same term.
