Eligibility

All Dartmouth students who are classified as active in the Student Information System (Banner), including those not taking classes or who are on a leave-term, are eligible for Health Services at Dick's House. These students must comply with the College's health insurance and pre-matriculation medical requirements.

Spouses and Domestic Partners who are enrolled in either the Dartmouth Student Group Health Dependent Plan or the Health Service Spouse and Domestic Partner Primary Care Program are subject to the same fee for service schedules as full-time registered students.  Dependent charges will be posted to the student's tuition account if not paid at the time of the service.

When Eligibility Begins

For new students whose first term at Dartmouth is Fall term, eligibility to receive services at Dick's House begins on August 1.

For new students whose first term at Dartmouth is Winter, Spring or Summer terms, eligibility begins the day before the first day of classes.

  • Example: If your first term at Dartmouth is Winter term, you become eligible for Dick's House services the day before you begin classes for Winter term.

Students who are required to be on campus as part of a College sponsored program, regardless of the time of year, are eligible for care at the Health Service.

When Eligibility Ends

Eligibility for students who have graduated will terminate on the first day of classes of the term following your graduation date.  Eligibility also ceases when enrollment at Dartmouth College is terminated by withdrawal or separation.
