Pre-Orientation Programs

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. The fee to participate in a pre-orientation program is $425.00.  For students on financial aid, pre-orientation costs are pro-rated based on financial aid percentages.  A student’s fee for pre-orientation does not impact a financial aid award in any way.

2022 Pre-Orientation Program Dates and Additional Information:

Information on Pre-Orientation Program dates and registration will be posted in late spring 2022. Pre-Orientation programs all take place prior to the start of Undergraduate Orientation. Participants arrive to campus early and officially move-in to their residence hall rooms on their Pre-Orientation program arrival date. The programs all have different arrival dates which will be posted here later in spring 2022.

Students should plan to arrive to campus in accordance with the start dates specific to their program (listed below). Details on arrival times and logistics will be communicated throughout the summer and updates will also be available through the Office of Residential Life and Learning.
