The “D” Plan
Year-round quarter system.
Allows students to customize academic calendar.
The Dartmouth Plan is a unique year-round quarter system that allows students to customize their academic calendar. Our students can work jobs/internships, or study abroad while most undergraduates around the country are required to be in class. The D-Plan encourages students to take full advantage of their education, both in Hanover and around the world.
The D-Plan offers students, and especially student-athletes, the flexibility to study abroad, do an internship, or just take an off term. As a Dartmouth student, I was able to spend a term in Rome, Italy and experience the world, all while playing football at the Division I level.
