Student Accessibility Services

Student Accessibility Services, at Tufts University, promotes an accessible college experience for students with disabilities. We support undergraduate and graduate students in the Schools of Arts & Sciences and Engineering, as well as Fletcher students, in developing self-advocacy skills, empowering them at Tufts and beyond. SAS also advocates for an inclusive and diverse Tufts community through education and collaborative campus partnerships. 

Students relax on the academic quad.

Obtain a Student ID card with your Preferred (Common) Name

You now have the ability to obtain a Student ID card with your preferred (common) name! 

  1. Update your preferred name in SIS by clicking the pencil icon next to your name in the About Me tab. (Please note: preferred names can only be printed on Student ID cards if they contain alpha characters only.) Updating your preferred name in SIS will also update your name on class and grade rosters.
  2. If you are replacing an old Student ID card, contact Public Safety about your request for an updated Student ID card. (Incoming students requesting their first Tufts ID card do not need to contact Public Safety, but will have their preferred name appear on their ID card automatically.) 

There are a limited number of replacement IDs available at no charge for current students, and incoming students will never be charged for this service! Learn more about updating your name on your Student ID card.

As a reminder, you can also have your name updated for general communications at Tufts. (Your diploma records will remain as your legal name and, as of now, your Tufts User Name will not change).

The 2018 Nutrition Data Summit will provide students with more exposure to data sciences and unite students and faculty conducting interdisciplinary data-intensive research. Students will have the opportunity to share research projects, hear moderated debates on topics pertaining to applied nutrition, and participate in workshops on applied data analysis.
