Investing in your future and the worlds
The return on investment will be enormous. For you, for Dartmouth, and for the world you will transform.
Education is an investment. Dartmouth has been ranked as a Best Value School and our return on investment calculation is among the highest in the world. Dartmouth will also invest in you; 50% of our students receive scholarships.
The directly-billed charges include tuition, fees, housing and food. You will be billed for these charges approximately six weeks before each term starts.
Plan to arrive on campus with sufficient funds for your out-of-pocket expenses. You will need an average of $1,100 per term to pay for your own books, supplies, laundry, toiletries etc. These indirect costs will not appear on your college bill.
* First-Year Students have additional room charges and fees of $418. Total first year cost of attendance is $71,827.
All students must purchase the Group Health Insurance Plan unless they can certify to Health Services that they are covered by a comparable medical plan. The cost of the plan in 2016-2017 is $2,859.
Entering students are required to have a computer meeting Dartmouth requirements. Students may provide their own computer or purchase one through the College. The cost for the basic computer package in 2016-2017 is $1,399.
An allowance for transportation is considered an educational expense. These expenses will not appear on your student bill, but should be factored into a budget for your planning purposes. Each student is responsible for all aspects of their own travel, and the associated costs are typically an out of pocket expense to be covered by the student and/or parent contribution.
