Tuck COVID-19 Information and Campus Updates

Additional Information for Applicants

You may have additional questions that are unique to your circumstances.

International Applicants

You may apply in any round. The Dartmouth Office of Visa and Immigration Services (OVIS) will assist enrolling students with the U.S. visa process. Please visit the OVIS website for further details.


Consortium for Graduate Study in Management

Tuck is a proud member of the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management. The Consortium has a separate application form and deadlines. You may complete the Consortium application in lieu of the Tuck application.


We will consider only one application per academic year. You are welcome to reapply to Tuck in the next application cycle and we look favorably upon reapplicants who have strengthened their candidacy across our four admissions criteria. As a reapplicant, you will submit a new application, essays (including the reapplicant essay), Letters of Reference (LORs), and a nonrefundable application fee. If you applied in the previous academic year, we require only one new LOR from a new reference.

Applicants with a Previous MBA

We do not typically admit applicants who have already earned an MBA. If you hold a similar graduate degree that is not an MBA, use the optional essay to explain why you need an MBA in addition to your prior degree. We consider the Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) from Indian universities to be the equivalent of an MBA and typically do not admit applicants who have earned this degree.

Joint- and Dual-Degree Applicants

Tuck offers several joint- and dual-degree programs. You must apply separately to each school. We will assist admitted students with planning specific curricular details. See our overview of Joint and Dual Degrees for additional information.

Applicants Seeking to Defer

We grant a limited number of one-year deferrals on a case-by-case basis for exceptional, unforeseen circumstances. To be considered for a deferral, you must submit a written request. If granted, an additional non-refundable deposit is required.  

Applicants Seeking Funding

Tuck uses discretion in awarding scholarships to incoming students who will significantly contribute to Tuck’s distinctly immersive learning community. We offer scholarships to enroll outstanding students who, absent funding, might not attend the Tuck School. There is no separate application process for Tuck scholarships; you receive consideration for scholarship based on your application materials. Scholarships automatically renew for students who maintain satisfactory academic progress throughout the first year.

Admitted students may also apply for educational loans.

Applicants with Disabilities

Dartmouth works to ensure that programs, services, and activities are accessible to all. Disabilities are not considered in admission decisions, and inquiries about accessibility assistance are welcomed. For any questions, please reach out to Sally Jaeger, Associate Dean, MBA Program at sally.o.jaeger@tuck.dartmouth.edu or +1 603 646 2190.
