General Information


As you complete your application, please keep in mind the following:

International Students

International applicants coming from outside the U.S. must secure a U.S. visa at least 3 weeks before the start of the program. If unable to do so, admission will be deferred to the following program session. U.S. visa eligibility forms will be made available to all accepted international students. These forms cannot be processed until the student has paid his/her enrollment deposit. Verification of financial support is required for all enrolling international students. Tuck provides assistance in facilitating the U.S. visa process through the Dartmouth Office of Visa and Immigration Services (OVIS). Please visit the OVIS website for further details.

International students should be aware that participation in the Road to the Ivy League does not constitute the basis for securing a student visa. Past participants have had success in obtaining Visitor (B) visas to participate in our program because the program comprises a short recreational course of study and is not for credit toward a degree. Information on the U.S. Department of State’s policy on short periods of recreational study is available at
