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.
