The primary purpose of a "Dean's Certification" is to obtain information about academic and disciplinary misconduct (or lack thereof). If requested by the professional school, we will report any major disciplinary sanctions [i.e. Conduct (Suspension or Separation) or Academic (Suspension or Separation)]. It is not College policy to report the specifics of the proceedings. If you have experienced a major disciplinary sanction, please speak with Leslie Kinglsey, the pre-law advisor in Career Services.
At Dartmouth, the Undergraduate Deans Office attests to the applicant's academic and personal record, if requested as part of the "Dean's Certification."
Please submit the form provided by the professional school to Colleen Murphy in the Undergraduate Deans Office in person [Carson 125]. by fax 603.646.6166, or mail [Hinman 6064 or 6064 Carson Hall, Suite 125, Hanover NH 03755] or by emailing it to her.
Because of the high volume of requests, your "Dean's Certification" will take 2-3 weeks to be processed. Please plan accordingly.
PLEASE NOTE: Dean's Certifications will ONLY be sent to those schools that require them.
