Tufts Student Life
June 1, 2021
Hello Jumbos,
Welcome to the official start of your Tufts summer! Please review the following information and email us at if you have any questions. Please refer to our Orientation website for continual updates, and we hope to see you on the June 2 webinar.

Start your New Student Checklist

You have a few responsibilities over the summer, and many of them can be completed online. We've just posted your customized new Student Checklist 2021 and have opened the Housing Survey for all students, as well as registration for Pre-Orientation! The New Student Checklist can be accessed on your Application Status page.
Start your New Student Checklist 2021
We encourage you to review each item on your New Student Checklist 2021 now so you can make plans and keep up with requirements. If you're currently short on time, make sure you at least get to work on these two items.

1) Set up your Tufts Email, Student ID, and Username

Your very first step should be to secure your Tufts email, student ID number, and username, if you haven't done so already. You'll use these for many important tasks over the summer and while you're enrolled at Tufts. We will send all official University communications exclusively to your address starting June 1, so it's important to get your email set up and check it on a regular basis!

2) Complete the Housing Survey

We've opened the Housing Survey on your New Student Checklist 2021. Be sure to complete the survey by June 21. You'll need to log into your SIS account, then choose "Housing" on the bottom of the "About Me" tab.

Pre-Orientation programs are a great way to ease into college by connecting with other incoming students and learning more about the Tufts experience from returning student leaders, all before Orientation officially begins. The eight optional Pre-Orientation programs will take place in-person. Interested new students will be able to begin registering on the New Student Checklist opens. The deadline to register for a program is June 17. Program placement will be sent out later in June and final confirmation and payment will be due in July. Updated information on all programs will be communicated over the summer and posted on the Pre-Orientation website.
