At The Dartmouth Institute, our goal is to help all students achieve their academic and career goals.
We encourage applicants with disabilities, who contribute to a diverse Dartmouth community, to apply for admission with the expectation that reasonable accommodations and access to The Dartmouth Institute's graduate programs, including curricular and co-curricular pursuits, will be provided. The Dartmouth Institute and Dartmouth College are committed to ensuring equal access under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as amended, and Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
Applicants may disclose disability prior to admission but are not required to, nor will disability status be considered in the admissions process. Disability disclosure can be made at any time during your enrollment; however, students are encouraged to engage the interactive process and request accommodations prior to the start of classes or as soon as a disability is identified during enrollment. Early notification allows for a smooth transition and the implementation of auxiliary services or modifications in a timely manner. Students are further encouraged to make use of reasonable accommodations and the supports available throughout their enrollment.

Accommodations are determined on an individual basis through an interactive process including the student and The Dartmouth Institute and are based on federal law and Dartmouth College guidelines. Courtney Theroux partners with students to determine reasonable accommodations and coordinates the provision of accommodations for them.

Disclosure of disability is voluntary and protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Disability information will be shared only on a need-to-know basis with appropriate college officials when coordinating disability-related services and accommodations.
