Special Community Student Program

For more than 20 years, Dartmouth College has been providing access to Dartmouth courses, free of charge, to academically prepared area high school students. 

About the Program

Dartmouth College's Special Community Student High School Program is open to seniors (during fall, winter, and spring terms) and juniors (during the winter and spring terms) of area high schools who have exhausted all possible classes within their field of interest at their high school. All students are recommended by a high school principal, guidance counselor, or other school official with responsibility for the program at their school.
