About the International Center

The Tufts International Center supports international students, scholars, employees, and their dependents throughout their stay at Tufts. We have three different office locations in Medford, Boston, and at the Fletcher School. Our staff advises on immigration regulations and requirements, produces immigration and visa documents, organizes social and cultural programs, and provides practical information and resources. We also promote international educational and cultural exchange and advocate on behalf the Tufts international community. Please read our mission statement, learn more about our team, and contact us if we can be of assistance.

However, all of our offices will have limited walk-in hours. Refer to our guide to Getting Things Done with the International Center, which includes a link to online appointment scheduling with an International Center advisor. Our service plan will be reviewed monthly and may change depending on COVID-19 conditions.
