Dartmouth Admission Requirements

Although Dartmouth does not have specific subject requirements that applicants must meet, Dartmouth recommends that students “undertake the strongest course of study available at their secondary schools.”

As far as extracurriculars are concerned, applicants are advised to participate in activities that are personally meaningful and that will enable them to mature on both intellectual and social levels.

Grades are important to Dartmouth. The college looks at grades carefully, and keeps every applicant’s individual circumstances in mind. Dartmouth explains that it pays special attention to grade trends throughout high school, and to try to understand why the trends are the way they are.

In its advice to applicants, Dartmouth has suggested if there is a particular drop in grades, for example, in a student’s junior year, the student let them know why this has occurred in the section of the Common Application which asks for “Additional Information.”

History of Dartmouth

Dartmouth has come a long way since its Puritanical beginnings in 1769.

That was when it was founded by Eleazar Wheelock, a minister whose initial aim was to establish a school to train Native Americans to be Christian missionaries. The college has shifted its aims in the period that has ensued, and has clearly broadened its educational mandate.

In spite of a financially checkered past, Dartmouth has survived and can lay claim to being one of only nine Colonial Colleges founded before the American Revolution.

Dartmouth has emerged as a serious academic institution education some of the country’s most influential leaders in fields from politics to business to the arts.

Dartmouth sits on a 269-acre campus in Hanoever, New Hampshire, and is the largest private landowner in the town. The wealth that the college enjoys today means that many students enjoy generous financial aid packages.
