Dartmouth’s year-round academic calendar of four 10-week terms allows you to decide when to study on campus—and when to use time away from Hanover to gain work experience, engage in service, be an intern, or study abroad.
Build the academic program that excites you intellectually; combine one of more than 60 majors with your pick of minors, fine-tune a major with another discipline, or design a special major around your own passion.
Under the mentorship of a Dartmouth professor, you can contribute to the creation of new knowledge through hands-on research.
Early decision acceptances were extended to students from 47 states, as well as Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, and from 43 countries in addition to the United States. Of those who are American citizens, 41% are people of color, a record high for the early rounds, and 15% are first generation students.
At Dartmouth, you’ll have opportunities to gain real-world experience that prepares you for success after college.

The extensive print and digital collections of Dartmouth’s libraries serve as vital extensions of the campus’s teaching and research facilities. With subject-specific guidance and support from Dartmouth’s librarians, intellectual curiosity is rewarded here.
