Deans Office Student Consultants (DOSCs)

Learn more about our DOSC program!


Check out our new blog to keep up with the various events sponsored by our deans and DOSCs. It includes entries from the DOSCs themselves and their own personal tips, stories and experiences at Dartmouth.

The Deans Office Student Consultants (DOSCs) are a group of students in their senior year who provide academic peer advising on an informative, but informal, level. They also direct students to the various offices that constitute the advising network at Dartmouth.

More about the DOSC Program:

The DOSC program receives training from the following: Undergraduate Deans Office, Pre-Major Advising, and Undergraduate Advising and Research, the Academic Skills Center, the Center for Professional Development, Residential Education, and Baker Library, as well as other advising offices on campus, including OPAL and Pre-Health Advising.

DOSCs spend a majority of their time assisting students - either in individual meetings or by responding to questions submitted by email. They also initiate, coordinate and implement outreach programming and information sessions with campus groups and administrative and advising offices.

  • Examples of the issues addressed in DOSC events or information sessions include:
    • major choice,
    • time management,
    • study strategies,
    • enrollment patterns and D-plan strategies,
    • internship and research opportunities,
    • funding resources,
    • library skills,
    • major courses and curriculum requirements,
    • off-campus programs.

DOSCs receive a termly stipend!
