The COVID-19 pandemic continues to challenge us to reimagine how we support students in every aspect of their Tufts experience–academic, social, and personal—as we prepare for the spring semester. Our graduate and professional schools have created specialized plans for the spring term with a variety of accommodations and guidelines. The information below and on each school’s website, as well as in the FAQs and in our resource with the details about the university’s comprehensive testing process, should answer most of your questions about life as a graduate and professional school student this academic year.

If you have any unanswered questions, please send an email to the Dean of Student Affairs at your school.
