Applying to the School of Engineering
Engineering applicants follow the same application process as any first-year applicant to Tufts. Here are some ways to tailor your application to successfully demonstrate your fit for our School of Engineering.
All students applying to the School of Engineering must have exposure to both calculus and physics in high school in order to be adequately prepared to succeed in the School of Engineering. If you have any specific questions or concerns about your curriculum, please contact the admissions officer for your territory.
All students applying to the School of Engineering must submit either the SAT with two subject tests or the ACT. If you are submitting the SAT with two subject tests, then we require the following subject tests:
- One math exam (Math Level I or II)
- One science exam (Physics or Chemistry)

Optional Maker Portfolio
This portion of the application is optional, meaning it is not required. Students applying to the School of Engineering may submit a Maker Portfolio to showcase their engineering-related projects. This is an opportunity to highlight past creations or ongoing projects that demonstrate your aptitude for the School of Engineering.
Students applying through the Common Application should indicate their plans to submit a portfolio as part of the application and will see a link to submit the portfolio via SlideRoom at the end of the application; please note there is a $12 charge to submit a portfolio through SlideRoom. Students applying through the Coalition application should visit the Tufts SlideRoom to create an account, select the appropriate “Non-Common App” program, and submit a portfolio.
