If you are an International student who enrolled at Tufts without financial aid as a first-year student, you are not normally eligible for aid in subsequent years at Tufts. An exception may be made if your family experiences an unanticipated change in financial circumstances. In these cases, the CSS Profile is required. Limited funds may be available, and you may apply for an emergency grant or loans. You can find other information on the International Center website.

If you need assistance or have questions regarding the application process or procedures, please contact Student Services by phone at 617-627-2000 or send an email to
