Financial Aid

Faculty Directed Program (DSP, FSP, LSA, LSA+)

In order that all qualified Dartmouth undergraduate students may have the opportunity to take part in off-campus programs, the College endeavors to adjust its normal financial aid awards for students already receiving aid. Tuition and expected family contribution for Dartmouth's off-campus programs are the same as for an on-campus term. Assistance is available to meet extra costs associated with off-campus programs, including airfare. Half of any extra cost is met with additional Dartmouth scholarship; loan assistance is offered for the other half. Loan assistance is also offered to replace the employment that would normally be included in an on-campus term. Although financial aid recipients are given aid to cover all of the required costs of the program, students are responsible for purchasing their own plane ticket and, on some programs, meals. Often this means that part of the expected family contribution is used towards these costs rather than for tuition.  For more information contact Financial Aid.

Exchange Program

Financial aid is available for official exchange programs arranged through the College. Financial aid awards are adjusted to reflect the actual cost of the exchange term. However, students will receive no more scholarship assistance than they would have received for a term at Dartmouth. Any extra costs associated with the program will be covered by additional loan assistance.  For more information contact Financial Aid.

Transfer Term

Financial aid for transfer terms (study at colleges with which Dartmouth has no official exchange program agreements) is available in limited circumstances. There is significant paperwork involved in arranging financial aid for a transfer term; please plan ahead.  If you are considering a transfer term and will need financial assistance, you should meet with a financial aid officer before finalizing your plans.  For more information contact Financial Aid.
