COVID-19 Spring Term Cost Adjustments

Dartmouth education will be online for the Spring 2020. Spring bills have been revised to remove housing and food charges for students living away from campus.

As part of the financial aid process, Dartmouth is required by the federal government to estimate a cost of attendance.  Because of the online format of classes this spring, students are now in 3 different categories:

  1. Students Living Away From Hanover:

The Cost of Attendance used to determine the aid award has been adjusted to include a housing allowance of $1,083 and a food allowance of $1,550 for the Spring term to recognize you will have costs living with family and/or friends. In addition, Dartmouth ITC has researched adding internet service to homes and recommended an allowance of $180 ($60 a month) for the Spring 2020 term be included in the cost estimate.

 

  1. Students Approved for Living in Residence Halls

If approved to live on campus, the Cost of Attendance used to determine your aid award will be adjusted for the lowering of the Student Activity Fee and the decreased food plan cost. These are the only costs that will be adjusted for the Spring 2020 for students living on campus.

 

  1. Students Who Cannot Break a Local Lease and Circumstances have Changed:

Students who were previously living off campus while attending Dartmouth may still have rent to pay. A portal has been created for students in this situation to upload documentation showing an obligation to pay rent (a copy of a lease, canceled checks, venmo...). Email the financial aid office for instructions on uploading documentation.

 

Financial aid will be disbursed after a student checks-in for the term. Students requesting a refund should set up e-refund on DPAY to expedite the process.
