Dartmouth Adds International Students to Needs-Blind Policy | New Hampshire News
HANOVER, NH (AP) — Dartmouth College has begun including international students in its need-blind admissions policy.
The new policy announced Wednesday makes Dartmouth one of six U.S. colleges that offer blind admissions to all undergraduate applicants while meeting 100% of their demonstrated need, regardless of nationality, officials said.
Colleges with need-blind policies say they make admissions decisions without considering a student’s financial history. The policy is intended to prevent low-income students from being disadvantaged in the application process.
Dartmouth officials said the change, made possible by an anonymous $40 million donation and fundraising campaign, will strengthen the college’s ability to enroll talented students from around the world.
“At a time when many of humanity’s toughest challenges know no borders, we are proud to be a magnet for undergraduate talent, regardless of nationality and ability to pay. of a student,” said President Philip Hanlon.
