First-Year Students

We look forward to getting to know you during your time at Dartmouth. The Undergraduate Deans Office provides support (academic, personal, career and major advising) for all undergraduate students during their entire career at Dartmouth, from matriculation through graduation. Please watch for important ongoing communication from your Undergraduate Dean or from the Undergraduate Deans Office.

Stay Informed: Important Communication from the Undergraduate Deans Office

As you begin your academic journey, we encourage you to utilize our advising guide, Explore, Engage, Excel: An Introduction to Academics at Dartmouth College.

Keep reviewing this guide throughout your entire first year and use the prompts we've provided at the top of many of the pages to guide your engagement with the course descriptions and curriculum. Feel free to email the Undergraduate Deans Office when you have questions.

Communication from our office

Please make sure to read the emails and attachments sent by your Undergraduate Dean and make sure to check this page often for updates.

We can't wait to work with you one-on-one during your time here!
