Application Policies

Admissions Policies

Students must matriculate in the same academic year for which they were admitted to the program. The academic year begins in Summer, and concludes in the Spring term. If students are accepted, but wish to defer, they cannot defer beyond the one academic year in which they were admitted. Students who wish to defer beyond the one academic year limit must re-apply to the MALS Program.

All degree requirements must be satisfied within six academic years of entry into the program.

Our office requires a $50 application fee, we do not offer waivers of this fee. 

All application materials become the property of Dartmouth College.

For more information on admission requirements, please contact us at or 603.646.3592

Applicants who wish may request an information session (Q&A) with the Program Director to get to know the program. To do so, please contact the MALS office by emailing or by calling 603.646.3592. This is a completely OPTIONAL opportunity, but please reach out as soon as you have questions.
