2028 Applicants: If I do not submit test scores, will I still be able to apply for financial aid?


Yes, you may apply for need-based financial aid at Dartmouth whether or not you submit test scores. Please visit our How Aid Works page to learn how Dartmouth meets 100% of every student's demonstrated need no matter who they are or where they're from.

Testing is not the ultimate factor in evaluating an application. Testing, in conjunction with your academic record and recommendations, helps us better understand your academic preparation. If you have taken the ACT or SAT, we encourage you to submit your scores regardless of how they compare to the scores on Dartmouth's class profile. Please review the information on the Class of 2028 Applicants page for more details about testing.
