The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged us to reimagine how we support students in every aspect of their Tufts experience–academic, social, and personal. Our graduate and professional schools have created specialized plans for the fall semester with a variety of accommodations for graduate students. The information below and on each graduate 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 fall.
