Register for a Visit
Our information sessions and campus tours end for the semester on November 24, 2014 and resume again on January 20, 2015. During this time, campus visitors are welcome to stop in at the Admissions Office in Bendetson Hall to register, pick up literature, and receive our self-guided tour and map. If you are visiting before November 24th or after January 20th, 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, though sessions end for the semester on November 24, 2014 and will resume on January 20, 2015. Engineering Sessions will be offered at 12:30 pm every Monday and Friday except between November 24, 2014 and January 20, 2015. Please view the campus visit calendar and register online. Transfer student Q&A sessions are held on four Wednesdays during the winter.
Campus tours, led by current students, are offered several times a day and last about one hour. 45-minute Engineering Facilities Tours will be held Mondays and Fridays at 3:00 pm. Athletic Facilities Tours, led by current student-athletes, are offered on Fridays in the fall at 11:45 am and will last about 45 minutes. We ask that you register ahead of time and encourage you to pair the tour with an information session, though keep in mind that tours end for the semester on November 24, 2014 and will resume on January 20, 2015.
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.
Transfer Q&As - Transfer student Q&A sessions provide potential transfer applicants the opportunity to meet with an admissions officer in small groups to learn about the Tufts experience, from academics to campus life, and to have their questions answered. Register online.
