More than 70 countries are represented among our undergraduate population and 7,000 alumni live and work in nearly every country on earth. Dartmouth is a school that welcomes your unique viewpoint.
All applicants to Dartmouth are required to complete the Common Application. Whatever your nationality, the review process is the same as we learn about your academic, extracurricular and community context.
International candidacies include those from all non-U.S. citizens with the following exceptions: eligible non-citizens, and undocumented students in the U.S.
Dartmouth practices need aware admissions for international candidacies. An applicant’s financial need is taken into consideration as one of many factors, including academic achievement, extracurricular endeavors and community context, during our admissions process.
All applicants take either the SAT or ACT, and most take two subject tests. (While international students who live in countries where the SAT and ACT are unavailable are not required to complete these requirements, the majority of successful applications to Dartmouth include completed testing.)
If your native language is not English, OR if you attend schools where English is not the primary language of instruction, we recommend that you take either the TOEFL or IELTS English-language test.
Dartmouth guarantees to meet 100% of the demonstrated need of every admitted student who applies for and qualifies for financial aid. International applicants must apply for and demonstrate financial need at the time of application, as follows:
- Early decision: Admissions and Financial Aid Deadlines are both November 1
- Regular decision applicants: Admissions deadline is January 1; Financial Aid deadline is February 1
- Transfer applicants: Admissions and Financial Aid Deadlines are both March 1
