Dartmouth tuition - can anyone help?

Hey! I'm really interested in Dartmouth, but I'm not sure about the tuition costs. Can someone share how much the tuition is and if there's any possibility for financial aid or scholarships? A bit stressed, but trying to stay positive! Thanks in advance.

Certainly! For the 2023-2024 academic year, Dartmouth's full cost of attendance, which includes tuition, fees, room, and board, is around $82,000. Keep in mind that this cost can change slightly from year to year.

However, don't let this number discourage you! Dartmouth is well-known for its robust financial aid program. They are a need-blind institution, meaning they admit students without regard to their ability to pay and commit to meeting 100% of demonstrated financial need. Financial aid packages typically include a combination of scholarships, grants, work-study programs, and loans. When you apply, be sure to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the College Scholarship Service (CSS) Profile to determine your eligibility for financial aid.

In addition to need-based financial aid, Dartmouth does offer a few merit-based scholarships. These scholarships are typically awarded to just a handful of students from each incoming class based on their outstanding achievements. The Dartmouth-CUNY Leadership Scholars Programs is an example of such a scholarship.

To get an estimate of how much financial aid you might receive, you can use Dartmouth's Net Price Calculator available on their website. This tool will provide you with an estimated financial aid package based on your personal financial situation.

Remember, it's always a good idea to search and apply for external scholarships too, as they can further reduce your education costs. There are many scholarships available through various foundations, organizations, and other sources. Websites like Fastweb and Scholarships.com are useful for searching for these opportunities. Best of luck!
