Who is a "new student"?

For visa purposes, new students are students who are expected to start their Tufts programs in Fall 2020 and who are currently outside the US. If you are already in the US on a student visa at another college or university, refer to the FAQs for Transfer Students instead.

Please note that guidance for new students will differ depending on whether your Fall 2020 program will be on-line only or if it will require you to come to campus for in-person classes. Please read the appropriate section below depending on the guidance you received from your program.
