This site exists primarily for students; however, we can also provide you with information to help you feel well-connected to your student when they are at Dartmouth.
While the Undergraduate Deans Office encourages students to take increasing responsibility for their Dartmouth experience, evidence tells us that students benefit from the continued support and involvement of their parents, guardians, and families. That is why our office prioritizes partnerships with families and welcomes communication by letter, phone, or email.
In addition to learning, profound growth, and life-changing experiences, college can also be a time of challenges and struggles. Please remember that The Counseling Center, dedicated to student mental health and well-being, can be an invaluable resource.
For those of you with a first-year student: Although the first term at Dartmouth is full of new experiences and adjustments, your student’s “transition” will continue as they journey through this coming year. Self-awareness, honest reflection, resilience, flexibility, and patience with themselves will continue to serve them well.
Dartmouth College values the privacy of its students and seeks to preserve the confidentiality of their education records. The college complies fully with the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA).
