Policy Statement

Occasionally, a student may transfer from one graduate program to another at Dartmouth for the completion of his/her Ph.D. Although the process of acceptance and transfer lies with the individual graduate programs, the Dean of Graduate Studies must give final approval for transfer of the candidate from one program to another.

If the Office determines that the candidate's credentials and qualifications are not adequate, then acceptance and transfer into the program will be denied. (see also Dismissal).
