All of Tufts Pre-College Programs require students to confirm their awareness of policies and procedures, release Tufts University from specific liabilities, and to disclose health and insurance information in advance of the start of the term/program.
Failure to submit these completed documents will result in withdrawal from your course(s) or the program and students will lose their program fees.
Textbooks can be purchased from the Tufts bookstore in the Mayer Campus Center (46 Professor Row). You are expected to purchase all of the required reading materials for each of your courses.
A syllabus will be handed out the first day of class listing required books and readings. Many students choose to purchase their textbooks in advance — if you know the course number and title of your class, the bookstore staff should be able to assist you in determining the required and recommended materials. (Please note — the cost of textbooks is not included in the Tufts College Experience or Tufts Summer Session for High Schoolers tuition.)
It is not expected that every student will have acquired the course textbook by the first day of the term or class. However, you should make the purchase as soon as you begin your course so that you have all the resources you need in order to succeed in the course.

Tufts Pre-College Commuter students are not permitted to enter a Tufts University residence hall, fraternity/sorority house, or other non-public building under any circumstances except as directed by their Program. Any violation of this policy will result in immediate dismissal from the program.
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.
