Housing fees, including the Room Commitment fee, and meal plan fees, including SMFA Meal Money, were prorated effective March 16, 2020, through the end of the semester. JumboCash and Rhino Bucks balances were also credited upon request effective at the time of the request. For those students with a Tufts grant, proportional adjustments were made reflecting the lower cost for the year. Students were issued prorated credit to their student account, which may be held for a future semester, or they were able to request a refund through SIS.
- Students who were living on campus for Spring 2020 had prorated credit for housing and meal plan fees applied to their student accounts automatically.
- Students living off campus for Spring 2020 were able to request (by March 26) a prorated credit for meal plan fees. Off-campus students must have submitted requests by 12 p.m. on Thursday, March 26. (Credits were not automatically issued to off-campus students for meal plan fees in case they remained in the Medford/Somerville area and used meals at Dewick-MacPhie Dining Center and/or the Commons Marketplace during Spring 2020.)
- All students with a JumboCash and/or RhinoBucks balance as of March 16, 2020 were able to request (by March 25) a credit for their unused JumboCash and/or RhinoBucks.
