Tufts Students

Couldn’t get into that course you wanted? Need to meet a requirement? Want to explore a new subject but don’t have time during the Academic Year?

Tufts Summer Session offers 170+ courses, from Comp Sci to Poli Sci, from Artificial Intelligence to Public Speaking, and Organic Chemistry to Nutrition. Our offerings currently include courses from the following Schools:

  • School of Arts & Sciences
  • School of Engineering
  • School of the Museum of Fine Arts
  • Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy

Most summer courses are offered in the evening or online allowing you to earn credit while holding an internship and enjoying your summer. We also offer several Summer Study Abroad options so you can explore your world while learning from your favorite Professors.**

Whether in Medford, traveling, or in your hometown, you can always be at Tufts!

Courses are affordable with discounted tuition and on-campus housing.

** While our Study Abroad options are limited this year, check back next year for many new opportunities! If you are a Senior, don’t worry, you do not have to be enrolled at Tufts to take our Summer Study Abroad courses!

Payment to clear your summer balance (and any prior charges) is expected immediately. Any account not cleared by the first day of the summer term is subject to additional administrative action.

Communication about your enrollment, balance, etc., will be sent to your Tufts email address. Information will not be sent directly to a third-party, such as a parent or external funding source. It is your responsibility to read your Tufts email and take immediate action when prompted.
