News & Announcements

Obtain a Student ID card with your Preferred (Common) Name

You now have the ability to obtain a Student ID card with your preferred (common) name! 

  1. Update your preferred name in SIS by clicking the pencil icon next to your name in the About Me tab. (Please note: preferred names can only be printed on Student ID cards if they contain alpha characters only.) Updating your preferred name in SIS will also update your name on class and grade rosters.
  2. If you are replacing an old Student ID card, contact Public Safety about your request for an updated Student ID card. (Incoming students requesting their first Tufts ID card do not need to contact Public Safety, but will have their preferred name appear on their ID card automatically.) 

There are a limited number of replacement IDs available at no charge for current students, and incoming students will never be charged for this service! Learn more about updating your name on your Student ID card.

As a reminder, you can also have your name updated for general communications at Tufts. (Your diploma records will remain as your legal name and, as of now, your Tufts User Name will not change).

Discounted MBTA Passes

Discounted Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) passes are now available to students for Fall 2018!

Tufts University, in partnership with Edenred Commuter Benefit Solutions, has implemented a new online storefront for the purchase of MBTA Passes. To access the MBTA Storefront:

  1. Log into SIS.
  2. Navigate to the “Bills & Balances” tab.
  3. Click “Purchase MBTA Pass.”

All pass orders will be discounted at 11% off the full MBTA price and must be ordered by August 8, 2018. The fall semester pass will be valid from September through December 2018. Before you purchase your MBTA pass, you will have the ability to update your delivery address. Along with hosting the site, Edenred will be offering customer service for all technical questions that may arise. Edenred will also send a reminder email before each purchase deadline.

Please note that Link, Bus, Inner Express Bus, and Outer Express Bus passes will be on Charlie Cards. Zone Passes (including Zone 1A) will be in ticket form. For more information regarding pass types, visit http://www.mbta.com.
