Financial Aid

Dartmouth College guarantees to meet 100 percent of a student’s demonstrated need for all four years.

NEED BLIND ADMISSIONS

Students are admitted on their ability, not their
ability to pay.

FREE TUITION

Students with families earning less than $100,000 a year do not pay tuition.

MEETS THE NEED

Financial aid awards are solely based on a student's need.

You Make the Difference

Every day your Dartmouth College Fund gift to financial aid makes an impact on current students. Fund gifts provide financial aid to nearly half of Dartmouth undergraduates each year, including students like JoRee LaFrance '17.

JOREE LAFRANCE '17

Hometown: Wyola, Montana 

Major: Native American studies and environmental earth sciences

Dartmouth Highlight: Creating a video about Native American mental health for the Generation Indigenous Native Youth Challenge, a national program

Financial Aid Impact: “If it weren't for the scholarship and financial support I have received from Dartmouth, I would never have had the amazing experiences that Dartmouth offered me, including my own research project in New Zealand on river restoration and studying Native American understanding of landscape as a Stamps Scholar. I am greatly appreciative and always will be.”
