Graduate Admissions

To Apply

MEM, MEng, MS, or PhD degree program applicants must apply using the online application.

This is the official Thayer School application for the MEM, MEng, MS, and PhD programs. The online application allows applicants to complete, pay for, and securely submit an application, letters of recommendation, and transcripts online. Applicants can also check their application status online with their pin and password.

Applicants to the MEM program who wish to be considered for need-based financial aid must apply for financial aid concurrent with submitting their application for admission. Late applications for financial aid will be accepted, but financial aid may be capped at 20% of tuition, rather than the 40% cap for those who submit on time.

For Dartmouth ABs or Thayer School BEs only, please contact Candace Potter ( before beginning the application process for the MEM, MEng, MS, or PhD programs. All other applicants should follow the application instructions above.
