Parents and Families Newsletter

The Parents and Families Newsletter is emailed monthly during the academic year. It provides news and updates from AS&E Undergraduate Education, the Dean of Student Life's Office, the Tufts Career Center, Academic Advising, and other offices across the campus.

Parents and families of undergraduate students are added to the mailing list for the Parents and Families Newsletter and other general University communications if their student adds their family's e-mail address in their admissions portal the summer before they begin their first year. Once the student has matriculated, parents and family members may also add themselves to the mailing list using our sign-up form.
