Fee Schedule

Fees for use of the E. M. Facility are based on total cost of operation, not including capital costs. Rates are regulated by the Dartmouth Service Center Policy. Users are of two types, Dartmouth users and others. If a user has a Dartmouth account (GL or OGA) they are considered Dartmouth users and are charged a subsidized rate. All other users pay an outside rate and are allowed use only as Dartmouth schedules allow. When users request service, they must provide an account number. Charges are billed monthly via journal transfers using natural class 7825 (SERVICE CTR Use of Equipment), or other class, as appropriate. 

Undergraduate use should be paid for through grants or departmental accounts. If neither of these funding sources are available, contact the E. M. Facility for other options.

Fees effective July 1, 2018.

For most current instrument pricing go to the RaDar web site (log in required).
