Class of 2017 (First-Year Students)

Welcome to spring term! We look forward to continuing to communicate with you over the next few years and getting to know you.

  • Each undergraduate student is assigned an undergraduate dean from our office; you will be made aware of your assigned undergraduate dean before you arrive at Dartmouth and will have several opportunities to meet them during New Student Orientation.
  • The Undergraduate Deans Office provides support (academic, personal, career and major advising) for all undergraduate students during their entire career at Dartmouth, from matriculation through graduation. 
  • We can't wait to work with you one-on-one during your time here!

Reminder: First-Year Student Vehicle Policy

First-year students are not allowed to bring a privately owned motor vehicle to campus. This long-standing regulation applies to motorcycles and motorbikes as well and is strictly enforced. The only exceptions are for emergency, medical, or special family situations. In those instances, the student should contact the Undergraduate Deans Office with the request, reasons, and dates the vehicle is needed.
