Curriculum
In conjunction with the anticipated launch next year of Dartmouth’s new Program of Middle Eastern Studies,  the Dartmouth-Jerusalem Exchange has opened an exciting new study track in Israeli and Middle Eastern Studies (all taught in English) for students wishing to take the Exchange Fall semester in Jerusalem.
 
Successful applicants will choose five courses from the rich list of offerings in Israeli/Hebrew and Middle Eastern Studies at the Hebrew University’s Rothberg International School in Jerusalem. This can include political science, economics, social sciences, history, Arabic and Hebrew language and literature, and more besides.
 
Once pre-approved by the Dartmouth coordinator and the Registrar, four of these courses can be used for Dartmouth transfer credit.

For the Fall 2016 list of relevant courses, see https://overseas.huji.ac.il/undergraduatecourses. The Fall 2017 list will be posted there soon.
 
Dartmouth applications for Fall 2017 will be accepted by the Guarini Institute until April 30. 2017.  Applicants must also submit an online application to the Hebrew University’s Rothberg International School by May 31, 2017.

Prerequisites
Cumulative GPA minimum: 3.0. Applications must be submitted to Dartmouth by April 30th. Two recommendations are required, one or both from a faculty member who has taught you; the other can also be from an undergraduate dean.

Participants have the additional (non-credit) option of taking the Rothberg School’s four or eight week intensive Hebrew course in the August-September leading up to the fall semester.

Upon completion of the exchange, the exchange coordinator at the host institution will forward the transcript to the Office of the Registrar, Dartmouth College. Future transcripts of exchange program grades may be obtained from the Hebrew University.

Financial Information

Tuition and Fees
Students pay regular Dartmouth tuition and service fees to Dartmouth for the exchange term and pay room, board and related fees to Hebrew University. Dorm charges ($2480 for the fall semester as of 2016) are paid directly to the Hebrew University; so too tuition for optional summer Hebrew (Ulpan) studies. There is no meal plan requirement. The cost of transportation to and from the site is the responsibility of the student. Because the exchange is an official program sponsored by the College, the Dartmouth student does not need to pay the transfer term fee that the College charges to students who study on outside programs during leave terms. 

Financial Aid
Financial aid is available for official exchange programs arranged through the College. Financial aid awards are adjusted to reflect the actual cost of the exchange term. However, students will receive no more scholarship assistance than they would have received for a term at Dartmouth. Any extra costs associated with the program will be covered by additional loan assistance.
