Pre-Orientation Programs

As of now Orientation 2021 programming will be virtual with a range of synchronous and asynchronous opportunities. Any changes toward in-person programming will be made under guidance from the Tufts Administration and medical directors. Learn more about how Tufts University is operating during the COVID-19 pandemic here.

Each year we offer several innovative pre-orientation opportunities to incoming students, including transfer and commuter students. These programs are optional, but in recent years over half of the incoming class has participated in one of the either programs we offer. The pre-orientation programs are an opportunity to get involved on campus early, meet upperclass leaders and mentors, gain valuable leadership skills, and meet other students with similar interests before orientation officially begins. Students look back at their participation in these programs as a great start of their Tufts experience.

2021 Pre-Orientation Program Dates: TBD

 

Registration 

Online registration for pre-orientation begins in May through the Application Status page. You can register for any of the eight programs with the same online application. The deadline for registration is June 10.

Each program has a maximum number of participants. Programs with more registrants than capacity will use a random selection process to fill spots. You will be asked to rank a minimum of three program choices. If you do not get into your first-choice program and you will be placed in on of your other choices. While we cannot guarantee you a spot in your program of choice, we can guarantee you a spot in one of the eight programs.

We will send you an email in mid June with information about your placement(s) in the pre-orientation program.

If you missed the deadline but are still interested in Pre-Orientation, please reach out to PreOrientation@tufts.edu as we may still have spots in some of the programs.
