Tufts Students in One Word
Current students at Tufts University describe Tufts students in one word.
Student Services is the first point of contact for many administrative services:
Student Accessibility and Academic Resources (StAAR) Center
The Student Accessibility and Academic Resources (StAAR) Center provides accessibility support and accommodations, as well as academic coaching.
Student Affairs is a central resource for your support and development. We partner with many other campus departments to provide a safe environment for you to thrive in your time here.
First-Year and Transfer Students
The Undergraduate Orientation team will be in regular contact with you and your family throughout the summer to provide you with all of the information you need to get ready for the Fall semester. You also will receive an online checklist of requirements to complete prior to your arrival.
During orientation, you’ll participate in programming to get acquainted with resources at Tufts and start making valuable connections with fellow classmates, professors, and administrators.
First Generation Students
The FIRST Resource Center was founded to create a community of support and to develop a network of resources for Tufts University’s first generation, low-income, and undocumented populations. FIRST welcomes any student who self identifies with the first generation college student experience. By strengthening the bonds between our community members and bridging the gap between Tufts’ resources and first gen students, FIRST aims to ensure that first-gens are empowered in, and prepared to reach their full social, professional, and academic potentials.
International Center (I-Center) provides immigration advising and visa documents for students, faculty, and scholars. International Center (I-Center) also provides individual counseling and advising, and coordinate a number of social events throughout the year, including both undergraduate and graduate orientation programs.
The Resumed Education for Adult Learning (REAL) Program provides resources to help meet your unique needs as an adult returning to or beginning your undergraduate education.
