Applicability of Policies

All students participating in University College programming are bound by the policies listed under "All Programs and Courses" as well as the policies for the specific Program and School in which they are enrolling. If you are enrolling in multiple programs or programs in multiple schools at Tufts, it is important to check the policies of each. 

It is the student's responsibility to review and understand all policies applicable to them. Please email us at courses@tufts.edu if you have any questions about the policies or their applicability to you. Note that all policies are subject to change without warning. Last updated May 2019.

All Programs and Courses

    University Policies

    All students at Tufts University, including non-degree students, are responsible for knowing and complying with all University-wide policies. These policies can be found here: https://www.tufts.edu/about/policies

    Policies Include:

    • Privacy statements
    • Information Stewardship and Information Technology Policies
    • Communications Policies
    • Financial Policies

    Eligibility, Admissions, and Enrollment

    Tufts University reserves the right to determine admissibility to its courses and programs. For the criteria for entrance for a given course or program, please visit the course or program pages. Tufts University reserves the right to review and determine the admissibility of applicants based on findings during a review of past academic, behavioral, or criminal misconduct. Disclosure of offense(s), and a statement from officials at previous institutions will be required.

    Registrations or applications for courses or programs are reviewed by program staff or an admissions committee (if an application is required). Admissibility is based on the quality of credentials submitted by the applicant relative to the specific criteria outlined for the course or program.

    Tufts University reserves the right to admit as requested, to deny admission, or offer provisional admission. The program will not provide feedback to applicants when admission is denied. Tufts University reserves the right to deny admission to persons who are judged to not have disclosed requested biographical information or educational history with completeness and honesty. Further, admission may be denied to persons who are judged to not have adequate preparation for college-level study at Tufts University.

    Should you enroll, you will have been selected to study at Tufts University for the specific course or program into which you were admitted, based on the evaluation of admission credentials submitted to the Tufts University. You will have been placed in a program or course based both on your wishes and the decision of Tufts University. Should discovery be made at any point in your enrollment at Tufts University that part or the whole of your application for admission was false, you will be withdrawn from Tufts University.

    Pre-requisite and prior study/learning recommendations are indicated in course or program descriptions, where possible. Please be aware of these indications when making course or program selections and email us at courses@tufts.edu should you have any questions. Misjudgment of your readiness to study in a course or program at Tufts University will not be considered as an extenuating circumstance if you withdraw after the no refund deadline.

    In some cases, a transcript, letter of recommendation, evidence of English language proficiency, instructor approval, or other documentation may be requested prior to confirming eligibility for a student to enroll in a particular course or program. Should these types of materials be requested, participation in the course will not be confirmed until they have been provided and approved by Tufts University. Students will receive email correspondence and, where possible, phone calls in such cases.

    You are considered “Officially Enrolled” in your program or course when:

    • Payment for the program is completed and your tuition balance is cleared ($0)
    • Any requested materials are received and approved by Tufts University

    Disclaimer: admission to and enrollment in University College programs, including Summer Session, Courses at Tufts, Short-Term Abroad, Tufts Pre-College Programs, Winter Term, or the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is not related to admissions in Tufts University Undergraduate or Graduate Degree or Certificate programs. Participation in these programs does not result in admission to a Tufts University degree or certificate program, nor is it expected to have any impact on your application status should you choose to apply.

    Refunds

    Please see the "Refund Policies" section (below on this page) for students officially withdrawing.

    Non-Participation Policy

    Non-attendance, discontinuity of study, abandonment of study, or abandonment of registration are not forms of official withdrawal from a course. If you stop attending class(es), you will not be administratively withdrawn, and no refund will be issued.

    Failure to notify the university of your intention to discontinue your enrollment or registration, will result in your continuing to be charged. These charges will be enforced, balances are subject to a late payment surcharge, and/or your balance may be transferred to a collection agency for action (with collection fees accruing to the debtor).

    The responsibility to learn rests squarely on the enrolled student. Consistent and on-time attendance, active interaction with others in the course or program, and steady engagement with the instructor and course or program content is expected. Attendance at all meetings of your course or program is required, unless otherwise noted by your instructor or program director. If enrolled students are not keeping up or not able to maintain active engagement with the instructor and course, they must take action and ask for assistance.

    Unexcused absences are may result in a grade reduction, course failure, and/or dismissal from the program with no refund.

    If you are unable to attend due to illness or an emergency, it is your responsibility to contact the course instructor or program director to make arrangements to complete missed work. You may be required to submit additional assignments if necessary.

    Disciplinary Removal Policy

    Tufts University reserves the right to remove students from any course or program for violation of any of the policies of Tufts University. There are no refunds of tuition charged or payments made in cases where students are administratively withdrawn for violations of academic or student conduct policies. Students who are withdrawn for disciplinary reasons are immediately under their own care or the care of their parents (if minors) and will not be permitted to stay in program spaces, including housing, and will no longer be able to access program activities or transportation. Any changes to housing, meals, transportation or other due to a disciplinary withdrawal are the sole responsibility of the student.

    Re-Enrollment after Withdrawal

    Requests for re-enrollment after a student-initiated withdrawal or university-initiated withdrawal (e.g., for nonpayment) will be considered individually. If approved and the withdrawal occurred on or after the first day of the course session, the university will apply a Late Registration Fee to the enrollment in addition to any incurred Late Payment Fee.

    Course & Program Cancellation

    Cancellation of Full Course or Program

    Tufts University reserves the right to cancel a  course or program due to low enrollment or other circumstances beyond the university's control.

    • Courses at Tufts (including Summer Session and Winter Session) makes every effort to determine course cancellation in advance of the first day of classes, but the final status of a course may not be resolved until the first day of classes.
    • Tufts Pre-College Programs makes every effort to determine program cancellations by two weeks after the application deadline of the term in which the program will take place. As of June 2019, we have never cancelled a Tufts Pre-College Program.
    • Short-Term Abroad programs makes every effort to determine program cancellations in the following timelines:
      • Winter Abroad: by October 31st each year
      • Talloires: please contact france@tufts.edu
      • Other Summer Abroad: by April 30th each year

    Students will be notified by email (and phone, when possible) when a course or program is cancelled. Cancellations will also be posted to the course directory, program pages, and website.

    Cancelled courses and programs are eligible for refunds of tuition and any applicable registration fee if the cancelled course was the only course in which a student was enrolled. Please see the Refund Policy for additional details (see "Refund Policies" section below on this page).

    Cancellation of a Single Course or Program Meeting

    Only the President or the President’s designee can suspend, in part or totally, regularly scheduled academic or administrative activities at Tufts. The general University policy is not to cancel classes for snow or other emergencies, but rather to hold all class meetings that can reasonably be held. The decision to suspend regularly scheduled academic activities is made as far in advance as possible and announced by the Deans. Students can call 617-627-INFO for news about weather suspensions or check the Tufts web page (http://www.tufts.edu) and look under Announcements. Also, the University endeavors to have announcements made over Boston radio and television stations (WBZ AM 1030, WBZ TV Channel 4). Faculty members can also cancel classes if they cannot make it to campus due to the weather. Please note that some on-campus courses may be offered by Tufts WebEx (https://it.tufts.edu/webex) on days when the campus is closed due to weather or a temporary cancellation issue.

    Grades, Credit & Transcripts

    Grades*

    Students participating in all University College programs (Courses at Tufts, Tufts Pre-College Programs, Summer Session, Winter Term, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, Short-Term Abroad)* are graded by the same standards as matriculated Tufts University students in those programs. Those enrolled in a course or program for credit will earn the same college credit as matriculated Tufts University students in the same courses. Please note that the extent to which this credit will transfer into your home institution or a future degree or certificate program is up to that institution or program. At the end of the term, an academic transcript will be available for you by request.

    Please note: not all courses or programs run by University College are graded or for credit courses or programs. Please see the individual program page for details on your program and write to us at courses@tufts.edu with any questions.

    Tufts University Academic Credit

    The Tufts course load system is expressed in credit hours. Courses may award anywhere from 1 credit hour to 5 credit hours depending on the contact hours of the class. The number of credit hours awarded will be indicated clearly in the course list.

    For Tufts Pre-College Programs, please remember that only some programs and students are eligible for credit. Your eligibility to receive Tufts University academic credit was indicated in your admission letter.

    For Winter Abroad programs attended through Short-Tern Abroad, please remember to confirm credit transfer policies before registration. 

    Please note that not all programs or courses offer credit and not all students choose to enroll in courses for credit (i.e., they may be auditing). Please consult your program or course page if you have any questions.

    Grade Reports*

    If you were in a graded course or program, you can review your Tufts University grades by logging-on to Tufts SIS (go.tufts.edu/sis), the university’s web-based student information system. You will need your Tufts User ID and password. For assistance, contact Tufts Student Services, 617-627-2000.

    Tufts University does not provide grade mailers. Other than a university transcript, online viewing is the only method to receive your grade.

    Transcripts*

    The official document which verifies your attendance and grade earned at Tufts University is called a transcript. This document is provided by the Office of the University Registrar upon request.

    If you later attend Tufts as an undergraduate or graduate, courses or programs that you took for credit may apply to your Tufts degree. You should contact your program after admission for approval and processing.

    If you attend a degree program elsewhere, you may be able to transfer any Tufts credit you earned in a course or program. Please note that each university has specific policies concerning which and how many courses may be transferred.

    For more information about requesting a transcript: request a transcript or diploma.

    * Notes

    Please note that Winter Abroad programs operated by IAU, which is clearly noted on program detail pages, are graded and have academic records kept by IAU. Please contact IAU with any questions. These programs or courses will not appear on your Tufts Transcript or in any Tufts system until and unless they qualify for credit transfer through the appropriate processes.

    Please note that not all programs or courses offer grades or credit and not all students choose to enroll in courses for a grade or for credit (i.e., they may be auditing).

    Online Course & Program Policies

    We have several policies that are specific to the fact that a course or program might be offered online. These policies only apply to the online portion of the course or program and are not comprehensive of all policies that might apply to the course or program. Other policies are included in other sections of this page.

    Please view the following policies specific to online courses and programs:

    Student ID Cards

    Students are expected to carry with them their official Tufts Student Identification Card (Tufts ID) at all times. IDs must be picked up prior to the student’s first course or program meeting. The Tufts ID card is required for admission to many university buildings & facilities, functions, and is necessary for library privileges, etc. Upon request of the university police or university officials, a student must present their Tufts ID. Please see the program details below for exceptions to this policy.

    Fraudulently obtaining, altering, or misusing a Tufts ID will lead to disciplinary action. Participation in the manufacturing and distributing of false identification cards of any type will lead to separation from the university.

    Falsifying or possessing a phony driver’s license is a crime in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In addition to a minimum fine of $500 for this offense, the state recently passed legislation making the penalty for use of a false ID in obtaining alcohol suspension of the right to drive in the state for six months on a first offense. The legislation applies to individuals regardless of their state of residency.

    How to Get a Tufts Student ID

    Courses at Tufts (including Summer Session)

    Exceptions: students attending courses or workshops taking place over less than 5 days do not need a Tufts-issued photo ID.

    All Others:

    1. Submit a photo (two ways)

    Waivers & Releases

    All Tufts Pre-College Programs require students to complete a series of enrollment forms that cover policies and procedures, codes of conduct, waivers, health information, and, where relevant, housing information. These forms will be provided after full payment has been received and must be completed prior to the start of the program.

Please note that the cost of textbooks or course materials is not included in the program fees for Tufts College Experience, Summer Session for High Schoolers, or Courses at Tufts for High School.

    To order textbooks in advance, check the Tufts University Course Materials Finder or the syllabus for the course and term in which you are enrolling. If no information is available, a syllabus will be handed out the first day of class listing required books and readings. It is not expected that every student will have acquired the course textbook by the first day of the term or class. However, you should make the purchase as soon as you begin your course so that you have all the resources you need in order to succeed in the course.

    Textbooks can be purchased from the Tufts bookstore in the Mayer Campus Center (46 Professors Row) or through online booksellers (like Amazon) or through any retailer that you might find. Please note that Tufts University does not endorse any particular retailer, these recommendations are offered only as points of information.

The handbook does have many policies, particularly around academic policies that do apply to non-matriculated students.

    It is your responsibility to understand the policies of the course and school in which you are enrolling and how they apply to you. If you have any questions about this, please write to us at courses@tufts.edu. The student handbook is subject to change and will next be updated in the Summer 2019.

    Eligibility

    Academic Integrity

    Sackler’s policies on Academic and Professional Conduct can be found on Pages 10-20 of the Sackler Student Handbook.

    Accommodations / Accessibility

    Reasonable accommodations are afforded to any student who is registered with the Sackler Dean’s Office, who has been deemed eligible by the associate dean in accordance with Tufts polices and in accordance with State and Federal regulations. Accommodations must be pertinent to the student's documented disability, must be reasonable, and must not substantially alter the educational program.

    The process of arriving at and implementing accommodations for a student involves:

    1. documentation submission and review,
    2. an interview with the associate dean,
    3. student's request for specific accommodations (requests for accommodations must be timely, and cannot be enacted retroactively)
    4. determination whether to grant accommodations, and
    5. notification of the decision to grant accommodations delivered in a timely manner.

    The Sackler School provides reasonable accommodations to eligible students with disabilities including, for example, impaired hearing, speech, mobility, or vision, and students with learning disabilities and Attention Deficit Disorder. Assistance is also provided to students coping with serious illness (both physical and mental). Students are required to provide the school with current documentation (no more than five years old), including test results, from a qualified professional in the field related to the particular disability, so the school may determine a student’s eligibility for services.

    For more information, please contact Associate Dean Dan Volchok at Daniel.Volchok@tufts.edu.

    See also sub-section “Student Accessibility Services” on Pages 47-48 of the Sackler Student Handbook.
