Visit & Connect: Graduate Programs
Please review our visit guidelines below before registering for a campus visit.
- Visit Registration: Registration for a campus visit is required. We are unable to accommodate those who arrive on campus and do not have a scheduled appointment.
- Vaccination Requirement: Tufts University is committed to promoting a safe campus environment and therefore requires all members of the university community to be vaccinated. Visitors attending admissions events on campus are required to be vaccinated and will be asked to show proof of vaccination upon arrival.
- Face Coverings: All visitors are required to wear a 3-ply or KN95 mask while indoors. Cloth masks are no longer permitted on Tufts’ campuses. We will have 3-ply masks available at check-in for visitors who need one.
- Arrival on Campus: We recommend arrival no earlier than 15 minutes before your program begins so that an Admissions staff member can be stationed at the front door to greet and check you in for your visit.
