Check Your Application
Information on how to check your admissions application status, make changes to your contact details, and send us your application updates.
If you have submitted your application to Dartmouth through the Common Application online (applications are accepted from August to January), within 24 hours you will receive an acknowledgement email from the College. The email will contain login information for our Application Management System. Through this system, you will be able to:
- see the status of your application
- update your contact information
- submit an update to your application
- see the status of your financial aid application, if applicable
After you log in, feel free to change your password (Pin) to something more memorable by using the "Change Password" link at the foot of your application status page.
How to Make Updates
Contact Information Updates: If you need to update your mailing address or your email address, you will be able do this by logging into our Application Management System. You will find the "Edit Address" link below your current address(es) and the "Change Email Address" link at the foot of the page.
Application Updates: Have important news? We hope you’ll let us know. If you just won a championship, the National Spelling Bee, or the Tri-Wizard Tournament we’d love to hear about it. You can send us an update by logging into our Application Management System and uploading a brief text file containing your news or additional materials (please don’t upload large files containing certificates or numerous images). At the foot of your application status page, you will see the heading "Upload Materials." You should type the news of your updates into a text file—such as a Word document—then upload that file along with any further certificates or other digital materials, as appropriate.
To Withdraw: If your plans have changed, please log into our Application Management System and complete the Application Withdrawal form on your status portal.
Common Password and Log-in Problems
- I have not received my login details yet.
If you have submitted your application via the Common App, you should receive an email from Dartmouth containing your Application Management System login details within 24 hours of submission.
- I have still not received my login email from Dartmouth.
If you have not received your login details via email after 24 hours, it may be that you have a spam filter issue. Please be sure to check that your email filter will allow messages from this sender:
- Using a different email to log in?
If you have received an application acknowledgement email from our office and are having trouble logging into the Application Management System, you may be entering an email address that is different from the one we used to send you your login information. Be sure to enter the email address we used to send your login details.
- I have a username and password, but they don't work.
The most common cause of problems with usernames and passwords are typos. Try copying and pasting your username and password to prevent mistakes.
- I still can't log into Dartmouth's Application Management System.
If you are still having trouble logging in with the information you received in your email from Admissions, please use our Contact Us page to tell us about your problem.
