Official Transcripts

Additional transcripts are not required for consideration in the National College Match, but Dartmouth welcomes quarter grades or midterm grades if available in November. All applicants, including those who match with Dartmouth, must submit the QuestBridge Midyear Report when first semester or trimester senior grades become available. This is typically in January or February. Guidance counselors should email or mail these updates to the Dartmouth Admissions Office (see Contact Information below).

Official Test Scores
SAT code: 3351
ACT code: 2508

Dartmouth requires the SAT (without optional essay) or the ACT (without writing).

SAT Subject Tests are recommended, not required. Applicants who do not take the SAT Subject Tests will not be disadvantaged in the application process. 

The TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is an exam that measures the English language ability of non-native speakers. If English is your first language or the primary language of instruction at your current secondary or post-secondary school, you will not be required to submit scores from the TOEFL exam. 

Request official scores directly from the test agency. Do NOT use the rush reporting service. If you cannot send test scores to Dartmouth in time, your guidance counselor or teacher should email a copy of your score report to the Dartmouth Admissions Office (see Contact Information below).
