Register for a Visit
We hold information sessions and tours most days. For the best visit experience, we encourage you to combine an information session (led by an admissions officer) and a tour (led by a current student). Use the Campus Visit Calendar to select the date of your visit, view available information sessions and tours, and register. Online registration is strongly recommended.
Consider Other Activities During Your Visit
Information sessions, conducted by admissions officers, are generally offered from one to three times daily Monday–Friday. During Summer 2014, Engineering sessions will be offered at 11:30 on every Friday between July 11 and August 22. Transfer student Q&A sessions are held on four Wednesdays during the winter. We try to accommodate everyone, but ask that you register ahead of time.
Class visits are available on a walk-in basis. Click on the class schedule and take your pick. Students should plan to show up at the classroom ten minutes early to check in with the professors and stay for the entire class. Please also come to Dowling Hall at some point during the day so we can be sure we have you registered and in our database. Sorry parents, but faculty have requested that these classes be limited to prospective students only.
Lunch with a student host, an option for high school students during the fall and spring semesters - is one of the best ways to get up close and personal with a current Tufts undergraduate. Lunch hosting is offered Monday through Friday from 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. from September 8-December 8 (excluding October 13, November 11, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28) . You can sign up for a lunch host here (we ask that you register at least one week in advance).
Group Visits - Schools and other organizations wishing to bring groups of five or more high school juniors or seniors to campus may call 617-627-3170 to inquire about availability and to make a reservation. We are unable to accommodate groups of 10 or more on weekends, holidays, and school vacation weeks.
