Short-Term Loans

Limited funds are available in the Graduate Studies Office for making short-term, no-interest loans to help students through temporary emergencies. Loans are limited to a few hundred dollars and payment must be made within three months.

Employment at Dartmouth

Graduate students who are fully supported (a full tuition scholarship and a full stipend) cannot receive additional payment from Dartmouth College for services rendered and cannot accept employment outside the College while enrolled. Exceptions may be granted in cases of academic or professional benefit or documented financial hardship.

Unless a program-specific exception has been approved by the Graduate Council, any exception will normally not exceed eight hours per week and must have the written approval of the graduate student's advisor, department chair or Graduate Program Committee, and the Dean of Graduate Studies.
