I am taking or have taken courses at my local community college- will those credits be transferable?

No. Dartmouth does not grant course credits for classes taken at 2 year vocational or community colleges except in rare cases.

It is possible that your courses may be used for placement purposes i.e. if you have taken College level math, you may take a placement test to move into a more advanced class. You will not receive credit for the level you skipped.

The granting of credits is done on a case to case basis by individual departments. (Check out the government department's policy here.) We have a rather strict policy on accepting transfer credits because our faculty will grant credits only if coursework taken at another college or university matches up directly with Dartmouth curriculum.
