Policies & Support

In order to avoid the expense of administrative fees and fines, please take the time to learn about Dartmouth College polices. For your reference, Dartmouth College polices and the associated consequences for violations are published in the Dartmouth College Student Handbook.

Examples of fees and fines include overdue library books, overdue athletic equipment, a damaged dorm room, parking tickets, late check-in, and lost I.D. card replacement.


Administrative Hold: Unpaid Fees & Fines

Any student that accumulates an owed balance of $150.00 or greater in their Administrative Fees and Fines account will be placed on registration check-in hold from the Dartmouth Card Office. Notification will be sent to students with registration check-in holds via email. The Dartmouth Card Office is not liable if students do not monitor their card accounts or read the notification email sent to them.

The balance owed on the Administrative Fees and Fines account at the time the hold was placed must be paid in full before the hold will be removed. (Please note: this does not mean a balance of $150.00. This is the entire amount that the hold was placed for.) Only once during the year, at the end of spring term, any amount owed at that time will be transferred to the tuition bill under the administrative purview of Campus Billing.

Unpaid Balances Reset

Card account owed balances are subject to reset at the end of the fiscal year. This system operation clears any negative balances in the Dash Discretionary or Administrative Fees and Fines accounts, and transfers them to the tuition bill. After such action has occurred, the Dartmouth Card Office no longer holds those balances and cannot accept payment toward them. Payments for balances transferred from the Dartmouth Card accounts must then be processed by Student Financial Services.

Customer Support

The Dartmouth Card Office provides Administrative Fees and Fines customer support and can help identify the office or department responsible for posting specific charges. This information is also available by viewing your account transactions through Banner Student or a registered GET Funds account.

Please know that while the Dartmouth Card Office does hold the Administrative Fees and Fines account, we are not responsible for the charges posted to it (with the exception of the lost or stolen Dartmouth Card replacement fee).

Questions relating to specific charges should be directed to the individual College department that posted the charge.

Door Access

The Dartmouth Card Office does not determine the validity of door access requests. We do not have authorization to add or alter door access privileges. Please contact the building manager of the area which you are seeking to access.
