Dartmouth College To Raise Tuition By 3.8%

HANOVER, N.H. (AP) — The cost of attending Dartmouth College will increase by 3.8 percent for the next academic year, bringing the total for tuition, room, board and mandatory fees to just over $60,000.

The increase approved by the school’s board of trustees is the smallest percentage increase in overall charges since 2001.

The college meets 100 percent of demonstrated need in financial aid. It offers free tuition for students whose family income is less than $100,000 per year and has increased its scholarship awards by more than 50 percent since 2007.
