Program Overview

FedGer-AmSince 1968, the Federation of German-American Clubs has sponsored an annual exchange that brings one German student to Hanover and invites one Dartmouth student to spend a full year at a German university. The student, selected by the Department of German Studies, must demonstrate sufficient proficiency in the language. A student can request from among a number German universities the one that is most suited to his or her interests and is then eligible to transfer up to a total of nine credits (i.e., one academic year) in most academic fields (not just German Studies), with the approval of the Registrar.

Federation of German-American Clubs Exchange: a junior-year exchange program at a German university for academic credit in most fields; a German student comes to Dartmouth in exchange.


Faculty Advisor
Professor Veronika Fuechtner

Students participating in the exchange generally receive nine transfer credits for a full academic year or four transfer credits for a single semester, with the approval of COCA.

Application Procedures and Deadlines: Prospective applicants should consult with the German Studies Department before the end of the previous fall term. 

Student Life


Financial Information

Tuition and Fees
In addition to the obvious educational benefits, the exchange offers significant financial advantages. The Dartmouth student pays a fee to offset the cost of the exchange which is 1/3 of tuition per term; and service fees to Dartmouth. At the same time, the student receives a living allowance in Germany: presently 6,000 euros for the year.  There is no tuition. The Federation locates affordable housing and helps with all of the paperwork. It also makes a German Railroad Card available.  Because the the German 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. The cost of transportation to and from the site is the responsibility of the student.

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.
