Curriculum
(1) Middle Eastern Studies track:
Five elective courses (taught in English) from the rich list of offerings at the Hebrew University's Rothberg International School, or from the University's general list of relevant undergraduate courses. This can include political science, economics, social sciences, history, Arabic and Hebrew language and culture.

(2) Hebrew and Israeli Studies track:
Two courses in Hebrew language plus three electives (taught in English). Two of the electives will pertain to Israeli cultural and social studies and Hebrew cultural history. The third elective can be in another subject of your choice, drawn from the Rothberg list or the University's general list of undergraduate courses.

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.

Dates
The fall semester runs from early October to end of December, with exams scheduled to enable students to be back in Dartmouth for Winter Quarter.

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.

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 are paid directly to the Hebrew University. 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.
