The Tufts University Office of Student Accessibility Services exists to provide accessible curricular and co-curricular environments for students with disabilities. When barriers exist in the academic environment or program, SAS endeavors to create equal access through the provision and creation of reasonable individualized accommodations for all qualified students. Through collaborative campus partnerships, SAS advocates for an inclusive and diverse Tufts community.
Accessibility services are available to visiting students in summer courses and programs. Students requesting SAS services must register with this office and request accommodations in advance of the start of the term or the class. Very important information about requesting services and learning accommodations can be viewed at the Student Accessibility Services website below.SAS Website
A recent Bundesgymnasium graduate, Matthias decided to leave his home in Austria for six weeks and spend part of his summer studying international relations and economics at Tufts. He thought the summer before completing his zivildienst (year of public service) was the perfect time to try something new. Matthias saw the advantages of international study at a great American university before entering his "gap" year, and he knew that Tufts University had the summer courses he needed and could transfer to his home university, when the time comes.
