Undergraduate Students

This is the page for undergraduate Arts & Sciences, Engineering, Combined Degree and BFA students. Pages specifically for prospective students who are applying to Tufts, and current and returning Tufts students. Also, general resources for all undergraduate students.

We meet 100% of need, as determined by our analysis of family financial resources, for all admitted undergraduates who complete an aid application by their respective deadline, listed below. Financial aid for Arts & Sciences and Engineering students is awarded entirely based on need.

Where do I go with questions about my financial aid?

Your first contact should be the specialists in Student Services who are trained to answer any questions you may have about financial aid and billing issues.  If they cannot answer your question, you will be referred to your aid counselor. All graduate students are assigned to Vy Callahan. Undergraduate counselors assignments are generally based on last name:
