Frequently Asked Questions

  • All Tufts students (undergraduate and graduate) who are in good standing with the university (cannot be on disciplinary probation or suspension) can apply for the OA position, provided they carry a 2.0 GPA and take a full course load during Spring 2023 and Fall 2023 (12-18 SHUs).

    • Do I have to dress up for the interview? Our advice is that you look presentable, i.e no sweatpants or clothes with holes in them. There is no need or requirement for business professional attire such as ties, blazers, etc.
    • How do I sign up for an interview? Interview details will be sent to all applicants for students to sign up for an interview time that works for their schedule. 
    • Will I get to choose where I live over summer/can I stay in my current housing assignment? All students who are approved to stay on campus over summer break, including Operations Assistants, will be relocated to specific buildings housing Tufts students over the summer. Your housing assignment will be communicated with you closer to the end of Spring semester
    • What if I plan on going on vacation over summer? Please indicate dates that you would be away from campus on your application, as we will take that information into consideration during the hiring process.
