Financial Aid

Scholarships, federal grants, subsidized and unsubsidized loans, and employment are administered by the Financial Aid Office for the benefit of students who are unable to meet the full cost of a college education through their own and their families’ reasonable efforts.

Scholarships and grants are gifts made to students with financial need and are offered as part of a financial aid ‘package’ that may also include loans and employment. Scholarship students continue to receive aid throughout their undergraduate years, for the first twelve terms of enrollment, as long as their need continues. Renewal applications must be filed each year. In addition to demonstrating financial need, students must make satisfactory progress toward the degree, as described fully in the Student Handbook.

Need-based College loans, Federal Perkins Loans, and both subsidized and unsubsidized Federal Direct Loans through the Federal Direct Lending Program enable the College to offer financial assistance each year to more students than could otherwise be aided.

Many employment opportunities are available to students on campus and in the community. These employment opportunities are for students who are eligible for Federal Work-Study as well as those who are not eligible. Employment information can be found at www.dartmouth.edu/~seo.

The Financial Aid Office can provide information concerning a variety of private and federal parent loan plans to supplement family resources and offer suggestions on other college financing options and plans. For full information on all available financial aid, families should contact the Financial Aid Office (McNutt Hall). Additionally, current and prospective students can access financial aid general information and forms at http://admissions.dartmouth.edu/financial-aid/.

For financial aid purposes, students are considered to be sophomores at the end of the spring term of their first year following matriculation if they have completed three terms, or whenever they have a course count of 7; to be juniors at the end of the spring term of their second year following matriculation if they have completed five terms with 14 course credits, or whenever they have a course count of 17; to be seniors at the end of the spring term of their third year following matriculation if they have completed eight terms with 23 course credits, or whenever they have a course count of 26. For the purposes of this classification, a ‘completed term’ means a term in which the student had an enrollment pattern of R, O, X, or T and received Dartmouth credit for at least two courses. Students receiving credits upon matriculation will be considered to have completed one term of work if two or more credits are granted, two terms if five or more credits are granted, and three terms if eight or more credits are granted.

Students participating in the Army ROTC program are eligible to apply for Army ROTC scholarships on a competitive basis to commence during their first year. Contact the ROTC Office in Leverone Field House for additional information.
