Preferred Name Change

If you use a first name that differs from your legal name, you have the ability to update it for general communications. (As of now, your public safety ID card and Tufts User Name will not change.) You can have your name updated on class and grade rosters. Your diploma records will remain as your legal name.

Summer Session at Tufts

Q: Do you need to fulfill a requirement…or want to explore an academic passion for which you can’t find time during the academic year?

A: Tufts Summer Session is the answer! With more than 170+ courses—in subjects ranging from Computer Science to Political Science, from Artificial Intelligence to Studio Art, from Organic Chemistry to Nutrition—Tufts Summer Session has just the right offerings for you. 

Our offerings include courses from:

  • The School of Arts and Sciences
  • The School of Engineering
  • The School of the Museum of Fine Arts (including both courses and intensives/workshops)
  • The Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy

Do you already have a job or internship? Most summer courses are offered in the evening or online, allowing you to earn credit while honoring other commitments (and still enjoying summer, too!). Courses are affordable with discounted tuition and on-campus housing.

To learn more about all these options, please visit the Tufts Summer Session website. But don’t delay: online registration ends on May 23 for Session 1 courses (walk-in registration options are available later).

Student Personas

Students outside during matriculation The ACE Fellows act as academic and community role models, assist first-year students in learning about campus resources, and help to create a welcoming community for students’ personal development. These committed undergraduates also create innovative co-curricular opportunities for the Tufts community.
Students talking at matriculation The Judicial Advocacy Program offers Tufts students opportunities to work as advocates supporting their peers in the Student Judicial Process. If you are interested in issues of social justice or policy, or if you think working as an advocate might help as you prepare for graduate or law school, the Judicial Advocates can be a great opportunity to develop skills and meet students with similar interests.
