Residency

Permanent Residency Policy (for Tufts Sponsorship)
Permanent residence applications on behalf of foreign national employees are filed by a specific school of Tufts University. It is, therefore, a school's decision and NOT an individual employee's decision to proceed with sponsorship. Moreover, the sponsorship of each foreign national employee must be approved by the Chair and the Dean of the sponsoring Department.

The Provost of Tufts University is the sole authorized official eligible to sign any documentation required for filing applications for permanent residence. The staff at the International Center reviews all applications prior to referring for signature to the Provost's office. If you have any questions, please contact the Director of the International Center.
