Winter | Summer Session


    Welcome to winter and summer session registration

    Whether you are looking to enroll in a short Winter Session or Summer Session course here at Tufts, registration looks slightly different than during the academic year for our matriculated students.  Our Winter and Summer Sessions are managed by University College, a Tufts' school. Prior to registration, make sure to review all of University College's policies and deadlines.



      How to Register for Winter | Summer Session

      UC Registration

      The following steps can be completed beginning on the first day of summer registration to activate yourself for summer registration:

      1. Log into SIS and click on “Classes” and then “Summer Activation.” 
      2. Read and agree to the terms and policies of the Summer Session regarding registration and finances.
      3. Enroll in courses.

      Academic Calendar

      Additional registration & refund information for matriculated students enrolling in Winter or Summer Session courses via University College, can be found here.

      Visiting Students should see the main University College policies, found here.

      As a reminder, students are encouraged so speak with their advisor about course selection prior to registering for courses. Incoming first-year students can reach out to the appropriate Advising Team member.

      Please Note:

      • There is about a 10-minute delay between finishing the activation process and being able to add courses to your shopping cart and enroll. 

      • Some courses are available for audit (not graded and not for credit). If you choose this option, you must select that class before completing all steps of the enrollment process to ensure accurate billing.
      • If you are trying to register for a Summer Session course after online registration has closed for a session, you should contact Student Services about how to proceed.
